Dollar Store Block Carrot Picks for Plants

Here's a simple project using Dollar Tree stacking blocks to decorate a vase of flowers or plants for Easter.

This project uses the stacking blocks from Dollar Tree.

They are similar to the Jenga blocks I've used for many projects but smaller.

As you scroll through this post please visit the bold blue links for more Homeroad information and the products I used for this project.

I began by gluing 6 blocks together in the shape of a carrot and one block across the top.

I used hot glue to glue the blocks together.

On the top I drilled a small hole to add a sprig of greenery.

Any kind of greenery will look adorable growing out of the top.

Orange craft paint and a dry brush gave me the distressed look I was after.

I used a fine grit sandpaper to sand the edges of the blocks.

I added a wooden skewer to the back of the carrot with hot glue and it was ready to stick in a plant.

Add the carrot to a vase of flowers for a cute decorative look for Easter.

Give a bouquet of flowers with a carrot pick for an added little gift!

You can make several carrots from one dollar box of blocks!

Leave off the skewer and you can fill a bowl or a tiered tray with wooden carrots too.
