This is probably one of my favorite transformations ever… and that’s saying a lot. These dollar store carrots have been totally transformed into something chic and elegant! I can’t wait to show you how I made these babies.
Here’s what the dollar store carrots looked like at first. These are from Dollar Tree. They are actually jump ropes. 
Start by pulling out the ropes from the carrots. I simply used a pair of scissors to grab the rope and pull it out. There’s a knot in the rope that holds the role inside the carrot, but if you pull & twist hard enough, it will come right out. Then I painted the carrots a plain white color.
Next, I grabbed some  green twine like this. I made little pom poms out of them.  Check this out to see how to make yarn pom poms. I made one green twine pom pom for each carrot.
The final step is to simply insert the twine pom pom into the opening in each carrot. Use a bit of hot glue to gather the pom pom so that all the twine ends are facing the same direction. Secure the twine inside the carrot with a dab of hot glue. For more details and to see how I created that distressed finish on the carrots, visit the blog post below.
