Easter Carrot Door Hanging Tutorial

9 Materials
So many of you asked what became of the GINORMOUS carrots from my last post that I thought I should take a moment and explain. What did I make? Well that's an easy one, I made them into a Easter carrot door wreath. Or do you call it a door hanging? Oh I don't know what you call it. I made a giant carrot door wreath-ish thingy for Easter.
Oh I know, you may be thinking I didn't need monster sized carrots for my front door but I couldn't help myself. Plus, have you seen the Easter bunny? Yeah, he's huge. I saw him at the mall once. Big bunnies like him need big carrots. And just to be safe, you may want to make one for your front door too.
I made the carrots out of good old foam insulation board. You know, the kind you get at the home improvement store. With my utility knife, I cut 3 pieces that were each bout 6" wide by 26" long. I used a marker to draw a basic carrot shape on the foam and cut it out with the knife.My basic carrot shaped looked like a rectangle that is tapered at the bottom. a carrot
Now I have 3 pink carrots and it was time to paint. I started with a basic orange and then when back with white and a little yellow. I also used a knife to make some indented lines for texture.... Head over to my blog for the rest of this tutorial Blog link below

    Not at all ginormous. Perfect scale for front door. Also you want it to “read” from street. Nothing worse than using 12” wreath on 36” door 50’+ from street. Looks like dirt on door. Since folks putting up Christmas now keep in mind and please fluff your artificial wreaths. Nothing worse than slapping up something with bow smashed for a year. Nothing is better than who cares look
