For spring 2020 I have been focusing on a lot of bunnies and carrots. I just have so many ideas for them! So todays post is going to be no different. Today I will be showing you how to make this adorable jumbo carrot. Whether you are farmhouse or modern, this carrot is sure to look great with both decorating styles. Let me show you how to make one! :
- 4 pieces of card stock paper
- masking tape
- Orange burlap
- plastic bags
- Spanish moss
- greenery for the top
- hot glue gun and glue stick
Step one: Tape all 4 pieces of paper together so you have one big square.
Step two: Starting in the one corner, roll the paper to form a cone (carrot) shape. Use masking tape to tape the cone in place.
Step three: Cut the points off the top of the cone so it is even. Then, stuff the cone with some plastic bags. This just helps to stabilize the cone a bit more.
Step four: Take the burlap and begin to roll it tightly around the carrot. You will have to add hot glue when you first start, some more in the middle, and then more at the end. You will want to fold the ends down into the top of the carrot and secure them with more hot glue.
Step five: Stuff the top of the carrot with some greenery. Next, hot glue some Spanish moss around it. I also decided to add a raffia bow and a button to the center of my bow.
Here’s a little sneak peek of my spring porch decor. I hope to finish it completely by next week! I also want to add that I thought the green runner underneath was longer, so I will have to find a new one.
