Easy Cross Craft

It’s a rare day when our daughter doesn’t ask to do a craft. She is 3 and a half and all she talks about is being an artist. One of her favorite activities is painting. With Easter coming up we though it would be fun to make an easy cross craft.

Although we made this cross craft with Easter in mind, but we plan on leaving it up all year long! I think it will look adorable in her room.

I like that it’s a reminder of who she is in Jesus!

My daughter always asks to do “art,” so I decided to create a craft we can also use for home decor. Instead of another piece that ends up in the trash can in a few days.

She love hanging her artwork in her room. When she was a toddler we made this finger paint masterpiece with painter’s tape and it’s been a favorite for our family!

Make this easy cross craft on canvas and you are left with a frameable piece of artwork. A great faith based Easter craft or activity all year round.

Now that she is a little older we made a more advanced cross craft with painter’s tape. But don’t worry it’s still easy to make!

Supplies for Easy Cross Craft: 


Directions for Easy Cross Craft

First, gather your supplies. Then make the cross on the canvas panel with painter’s tape.

We used 1 inch tape and placed two pieces for the width and the length. Our cross was 2 inches thick, 5.5 inches wide and 8.5 inches tall. Make sure tape is secure.

Use painter's tape to make an easy cross craft on canvas! Your kids will have a blast painting it. Even a toddler can do it!

Now let your child paint! We tried to choose colors that mix well together. If my daughter has every color, she tends to mix them all together and the paint turns brown. Stick to 2-3 colors.

What an easy cross craft idea for kids! They will love making this for easter and hanging the canvas in their bedrooms.

Let is dry for at least 2 hours. It may take longer depending on how thick your child puts the paint on. After it is dry peel off the painter’s tape.

Now you have a beautiful cross! Leave the cross blank or print the Child of God design.

Looking for a fun and easy art project for your preschooler? Make this cross craft on canvas and you are left with a frameable piece of artwork. A great faith based Easter craft or activity all year round.

We printed the design on rice paper. This type of paper is thin enough to look “clear” when it is glued down.

You will see some edges, but from a distance it isn’t noticeable. Then we used gel medium (mod podge works too) to secure the paper. Now you are done!

This is a great easy cross craft for preschoolers. They can do most of the work themselves and you are left with a frameable piece of art.

A great faith based Easter craft or a craft to make all year long.

The perfect preschooler craft for this Easter! Kids will love to finger paint and make their own cross canvas art. Faith based art for kids!
