Gather all materials, remove tags and packaging.
Base coat the inside and outside of the metal paper clip cup with orange acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Making sure to paint the bottom.
Using a glue gun and glue sticks, attach the twine-wrapped carrots to the outside of the metal paper clip cup. Make sure to glue the carrots close together, filling in all of the empty spaces.
The last carrot was a bit of a tight fit, so gently squeeze the foam carrot between your fingers and thumb, and then insert, securing with glue.
Measure two 12” lengths of wired jute cord, and then trim to size with wire cutters. Twist the two lengths of wired jute cord together to create one handle.
Carefully bend the handle to create an arch. Attach the ends of the handle to the right and left side of the carrot basket, tucking into empty spaces between the carrots. Secure the ends of the handle with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Tie a bow with natural jute twine, and attach to the top edge of the basket with a glue gun and glue sticks. Trim any long ends with scissors.
