If you’re look for a FUN and QUICK craft, these Wooden Carrots are the perfect project! These make the best accent pieces to your Spring and Easter decor.
I love projects that are easy and don’t take a lot of time to create! When I was creating my monthly subscription box, I knew that this piece was going to be a HUGE hit!
Carrots are all the rage in decorating right now, and while I didn’t know at first if I would enjoy it, I quickly decided that I LOVED decorating with them! These wooden carrots are the perfect accent piece to any of your seasonal decorating for Easter! The best part is that you can leave them up after the holiday through Spring until the hot summer sun hits!
These are a part of my monthly subscription craft box that includes all of the supplies and instructions to create your own, but I wanted to share the directions with everyone in case in case you missed out on the craft box. You’ll just have to buy your own supplies!
Here’s how you can make your own wooden carrots!
- Wooden carrot pieces with a small hole drilled into the large end (I just these out using my scroll saw and just created a few different sizes. There isn’t really anything exact to cutting these. Just make sure your lines are straight.)
- Scrapbook paper (anything that matches your decor or a traditional orange)
- Mod Podge
- Raffia (I used green but you can use the natural color also)
- Foam Brush
- Pen or Pencil
- Hot Glue
Using your pen or pencil, trace each one of your wooden carrot blocks onto the scrapbook paper and cut out.
Using a foam brush, apply a light coat of Mod Podge to you wooden carrot piece and apply your cut scrapbook paper making sure to align the edges.
If you use too much Mod Podge, you will create bubbles under your paper. It’s best to do a light coat and then if you have any edges that are wanting to peel up, you can apply a little more.
After your Mod Podge is dry, use your sandpaper to sand down the edges of the scrapbook paper. This will knock off the edges of the paper and give it a distressed look.
Take a small bunch of raffia and cut to about 6-7 inches long. It doesn’t have to be exact. Fold in half.
Using your hot glue gun, put glue on the small hole drilled into the large side of the wooden carrot.
Taking the folded end of the raffia, twist it a little and push it down into the hole where you applied the hot glue.
Taking a short piece of twine, you can tie a knot to the bottom of the raffia. I unraveled the twine a little with my fingers to give it a little more dimension.
Finish up your other wooden carrots, depending on how many you are creating and then they’re ready to display!
