I made a couple of carrots for Easter. They turned out pretty cute and made a great back drop for the little stand up bunny!
They were easy to do. I saw the carrot treat bags at Dollar Tree and bought a package of two, thinking I would do something with them.
The first thing I did was cut off the green polka dot tops.
Next, I used a pencil eraser and white paint to make random polka dots on the front and back of the orange fabric.
I had some green Dollar Tree wired ribbon. I cut thin strips of various lengths, using both the wired pieces and the plain ones.
Next, I glued the strips randomly across the inside, both sides.
I pulled the drawstrings together very tight and hot glued around to keep it tight. I fluffed all the greenery and bent the wired pieces in place.
Then, I stuffed my carrots.
I glued the greenery to the inside on one side of the carrot, and then glued the other side to it.
I then glued the edges to it and anything sticking out I gathered and glued that, too.
As a final touch, I glued some jute twine to the front, leaving about a 3” length, then wrapped it around the top several times, ending back at the front, tyed a bow and glued it in place.
The final project, displayed with other items I have crafted, just in time for Easter.
