Diy Carrots for Spring/Easter Decor From Scrap Wood

5 Materials
1 Hour

I have been wanting t start my Easter decoration making. and of course carrots are high on that list. But I wanted cute rustic looking carrots not the orange plastic ones I always see. These carrots are the first ones I have made and I have a couple of more options I will be sharing in another post.

I started by just using some scrap wood we had. I cut triangles from them in three different sizes. You will see why in the end.

I don't like bright orange so I used a combination of different darker and lighter oranges.

If they were too bright I used an ink pad in brown color to go over them to antique them.

I added some polka dots to some and some "carrot lines' to others. Now it is time to add the carrot tops.

I used green twine. Mine was for the dollar store and came in the three pack with the regular jute pack. I cut four five inch sections for each carrots top.

Get some non-candy Easter egg ideas for this year's egg hunt.

Then I unraveled it to make it look more wild. Then I tied more of the twine around the bottom part of the carrot top and cut the ends even so it would be easier to stuff into the top of the carrot.

Here you can see I drilled a hole In the top of each carrot and then stuffed each carrot top down into the hole with a little bit of hot glue.

I stacked three different sizes together and tied them with some muslin I had torn into a strip. I hope you like this diy it sure was fun to make.
