Spring Carrot Door Hanger

2 Materials
15 Minutes

Spring is upon us! I’m so excited for the sunshine, warm weather, flowers and all the happiness that spring brings with it. I’m also excited for Easter and spring time decorating and I’ve decided to get a little jump on my Easter decor by adding a spring carrot door hanger (our very first door hanger at our new house!) to the front of our new home! It was super easy to make and I know you’ll want to know how I whipped it up, so scroll down and see what I did, then hop over to my blog to get all the details on how to make one for yourself!

Here is what you will need…

  • Scissors
  • 4 Tulip “bushes” in orange. I bought mine at Michael’s
  • Wire Cutters
  • Green burlap ribbon
  • Greens I also bought these at Michael’s in their “Gardeners Market” section. They look like carrot tops to me icon
  • Wire.

Command strip and hook for hanging.

I started with 4 tulip bushes, and I removed the flowers ( with stems attached) from the bush from ONLY one tulip bush. Then I had a nice pile of tulips on stems. I then took three of the tulips aside and using the wire, created a bundle like this…

This created the point of my carrot. I also wired in the end of my burlap ribbon, leaving the other end still attached to the spool.

I continued to add tulips to the bundle to gradually add bulk to the carrot. First three tulips and then six (that used up all of the single stem tulips). next I began to add the other three tulip bushes one at a time. gradually moving up the ribbon and wiring them down.

I fanned and flattened each tulip bush before I added it to the bundle. Since the stems are wired you can manipulate the shape of the "carrot' easily. Once all the tulip bushes were added and wired down It was time to add the carrot greens.

Making sure to wire the ribbon and stems snugly I wired the stems of the tulips to the stems of the greens. See below.

Flipping the carrot facedown I looped the ribbon back toward the carrot, cut the ribbon and wired the ribbon down. this made the loop by which the door hanger will hang from the command hook.

I flipping the carrot back over I tied the remaining ribbon in a bow, hiding where the greens and the tulips are joined.

I left long tails on my ribbon that can be curled since I used wired ribbon. Isn't my little carrot cute!
