These Easter decor carrots are a great stand in for some of the more expensive rustic carrot decor that you can buy these days and they cost just pennies to make!
Oh my goodness, I just love me some cute little decor carrots to go along with all those fluffy bunnies at Easter time! I just had to re-share this idea from a few years ago because it’s such a good one and I’d hate for it to be forgotten! Kennedy and I made these together when she was about 7, but I think we’d still have fun with them if we made them this year now that she’s almost 13. 🙂 Enjoy this old post of mine!
I saw some wicker type of carrots somewhere the other day. Pinterest, Facebook… I don’t know. But I saw them. And they stuck in my brain. I had to have carrots! Cute ones too!
By sheer luck, this idea popped into my head while I was waiting in the parking lot at the school later that day, waiting to pick up Kennedy. I saw a sort-of-a-version of it on some kids craft show from the 80’s once and I don’t know what made me remember it now but I’m glad I did!
Newspaper and tape!
No, really! Look!
How to Make the Easter Decor Carrots
Oops! Got my root vegetables a little mixed up there! Happens to the best of us, right?
But do you see how neat it is? We painted the carrots in various levels of orange because they do honestly look a little like parsnips in the natural color. Which is fine, but maybe not quite as cute.
The reason why I’m so obviously over-excited about these carrots isn’t just about these carrots.
It’s about the potential! I can make so many different things using this crazy little idea of mine. I just make a shape out of newspaper and tape and then wrap it in something! It’s going to be extraordinary!
And also, I just really like these carrots.
Have you ever tried making your own Easter decor carrots?
