Spring is in the air, and Easter is around the corner! Everywhere you look, it’s just tulips and bunnies and eggs and pastels.

This Easter craft, however, is none of the above. These burlap carrots are perfect for a neutral color scheme.

I used:


  • craft foam


  • a roll of burlap wrap


  • twine


  • faux greenery


(The green ribbon in the photo didn’t make the final cut.)

Craft foam was the first thing that came to mind to give my carrots shape.


I began by cutting triangles from the block of craft foam.


An ordinary kitchen knife with fine teeth works great to carve away edges until it resembles a carrot or cone shape.


Use your knife also to make a hole in the top of each carrot.

I used about 10 inches of burlap wrap per carrot.


Hot glue is perfect for securing one end of the burlap to the foam.

Tightly wrap the burlap around the foam and secure the end with hot glue as well.


Cut away excess burlap, leaving just enough to cover the top of the foam.


Put a bit of hot glue in the hole on top and tuck in all the remaining burlap.

For a bit of added texture, I coiled twine around each carrot.


Bottom to top and back again to the bottom to form a few crisscrosses.


A drop of hot glue here and there will keep the twine in place.

Fill the hole at the top with glue to secure the greenery.

A few sprigs of fine faux greenery will work great as carrot stems and leaves.

Here they are in a wooden bowl, decorating my entryway. Aren’t they just the cutest??

I absolutely love how they turned out. Perfect neutral spring and Easter decor.

This easter craft was so quick and easy. I don’t think it took me much longer than an hour. It was also super relaxing!
