Easter Carrot Decor Dupes

Everyone knows that Easter means carrots. Let me show you how to make these super simple twine and burlap Easter carrot decor DIYS.

Easter Carrot Decor

Not really sure why we associate carrots with spring. Technically it’s not a spring veggie. Yet, it just seems to work. It’s weird but carrots in spring are cute. Who knew?

There are so many possible decorating uses for these cute carrots. You can set them out as decor. Hang them from a banner or use as decoration on a tiered tray. You can even use them to embellish a front door wreath.

And you don’t have to pay a bunch of money to get a bunch of carrots. They are so simple and cheap to make. All you’re going to need is a bag of those glittery dollar store foam carrots and a few basic craft supplies.

Let me show you how.

Step 1 For Either One

The tops that come with these dollar store carrots are fairly sparse. To make them look more lush and high end you’ll want to bulk them up a bit. For both carrot DIYs you need to start with this step first:

  • Pop the green top off of each carrot.
  • Cut some spiky faux greenery tips off of some Dollar Tree greenery.
  • Hot glue the greenery to the center of each of the carrot tops.
  • Set aside for later.

Twine Wrapped Carrots

Michaels is a fabulous place to get craft supplies and inspiration. Who wouldn’t love their aisles upon aisles of home decor? But sometimes the price they are asking literally makes me gasp out loud.

That’s what happened when I spotted these twine wrapped carrots. $21.99 for 5 twine wrapped carrots! Not in this life time. Not when you can make them in under 2 minutes for less than a $1 each.

Supplies You Will Need

  • Foam carrots
  • Twine
  • *Optional: Burnt orange embroidery thread
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Scissors

After you followed Step 1 For Either One, start by putting a dap of hot glue on the tip of the carrot and stick the end of the twine to it. Start wrapping the twine around the carrot adding a few more drops of hot glue.

Once you get this started you can then just continue wrapping the twine around and around. You want the twine to be close and tight together so that the orange doesn’t show through. You won’t need to add any more hot glue.

Once you get to the top of the carrot you’ll need to start adding a bit of hot glue again or the twine will just slip off. Leave a little round space at the top for the carrot top.

Hot glue the carrot top to the top of the carrot and then wrap the twine around a few more times to completely cover this up. Cut the twine.

*Optional: If you want to add a pop of colour to your carrots once again pull out that hot glut gun and wrap some embroidery thread around the twine. You should only need a dab of hot glue at the top and the bottom.

And voila! What do you think? Is it just me or are these even better looking than the one’s from Michaels.

Decorative Burlap Wrapped Carrots

I saw similar carrots on the Michaels web site. The ones they had were just stripped and there were 3 for $16.99. Again, cute but that’s a lot of money for something that you can make yourself for a fraction of the price and in mere minutes.

Supplies You Will Need

  • Foam carrots
  • Decorative burlap sheets
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Twine
  • Scissors

Start by putting a long line of hot glue down the carrot from tip to top. Then press the carrot down on the burlap sheet and line it up so that the tip of the carrot lines up with the edge of the burlap. The top of the carrot should line up with the edge of the other side.

(Did I explain that well? If not, just check out the picture above for a clear visual.)

Start rolling the carrot in the burlap sheet, applying strips of hot where needed. You want the burlap to lie flat.

As you’re rolling the carrot into the burlap you’ll want to fold the burlap over the tip. You’re going to need to do this a few more times until the tip is completely covered.

Roll the burlap over the carrot until you can no longer see the orange underneath. Then cut the burlap off the tip as close to the carrot as possible.

Cut the extra burlap off. Then use your hot glue to adhere the edge of the burlap to the carrot.

Next, cute the top of the burlap sheet so that it’s an inch or so above the top of the foam carrot.

Clean up the tip of the carrot by trimming it and adding any hot glue if needed. You don’t need this access because while you were wrapping the carrot in the beginning you were covering the tip.

Hot glue the carrot top to the top of the carrot. Then squirt some more hot glue around the carrot top onto the foam carrot and bunch the burlap around the top end.

Tie the burlap closed with some twine. Give it a double knot. Cut a slit or two into the bunched burlap and curl it down a bit.

Can you believe it? That it! That’s all it takes to make these beautiful, home decor worthy, Easter carrot decor. So simple and yet so elegant.

I have already found several ways to use these carrots in my Easter decorating this year. They paired brilliantly with some of my latest Easter thrift store makeovers.

These burlap wrapped Easter carrot decor pieces are just too perfect. They look so high end and unique. You can change these up by using a variety of decorative burlap designs.
