It all began with this cute design inspired from Whiskey and Whit. I follow her on YouTube and she has great DIY ideas and crafts. This is from her 20 Amazing High End Easter DIY’s for 2021 video.
Carrot Patch Sign
Using orange vinyl I cut this out with my Cricut machine. If you don’t have a Cricut, you can still do this by using stencils, stickers or even free handing it yourself.
I took this square sign from the dollar tree and painted it with my Waverley white chalk paint. It took two coats.
I had these carrots from the dollar store and then also cut apart the vinyl sign to see how it would fit. I didn’t use all of the wording on the sign as you can see.
OK, so now it’s down but kind of looks a little blah to me.
So I took my burnt umber paint and added a little bit of water to it, just a little, and painted it on and then wiped off the excess.
And then I thought the carrots were kind of missing some thing too. In some spots you could actually see the white Styrofoam from underneath. So I added some jute twine that I got from the dollar tree.
Glued on the carrots and this is how it looked at this point. If I were to do this over again I would probably make the lettering bigger but it’s what I had so I worked with it.
In the end, I added some jute twine and a flower with some moss that I got from the yard. I was finally happy with it. Hope you like it too!
