DIY Spring Rustic Burlap Carrots

Did some bunny say carrots? Spring is inching closer! Let’s craft these adorable carrots for pops of colors this Easter and all spring long. This project is simple, affordable, and just plain cute!

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 20-30 minutes
Age range: 12 and up

Things You’ll Need:

2 Styrofoam Cones

1 spool Orange Fringe Burlap Ribbon

1 package Natural Dried Raffia Ribbon

1 set of Artificial Matai Greenery Pick

Scissors

Glue Gun

Wire Cutters

Things to do:

  1. Start with wrapping the cone. Glue the orange burlap ribbon to the top of the smaller end of the Styrofoam cone. Once dried, fold the burlap slightly, which allows you to then cover the rest of the top. From there, start wrapping the ribbon around until approximately 1/4 inch down. From there take the ribbon and wrap the bottom once and glue. This will then allow you to bring the ribbon back up to finish the rest of the wrapping, without having to cut the ribbon.

2. Once all wrapped, you can then go back with the glue gun and glue down any of the ribbon that is loose.

3. Now take the Matai picks and clip off each individual stem with the wire cutters. It took one matai pick for each carrot made.

4. From there, you will then insert the individual stems at the top of the carrot at a diagonal. You may need to cut a slit in the ribbon if having an issue getting the stems through.

5. After the stems are placed, take a strip of orange burlap ribbon to cover up any Styrofoam that may still be showing around the top and edges.

6. Lastly, take the raffia and cut off a few strands to then tie around the top of the carrot or get creative and use any other decorative ribbon to help finish off the carrot.

DIY Paper Mache Flower Pot Bunnies

Hop into spring with these adorable Paper Mache Flower Pot Bunny Rabbits. Add these sweet pots into your Easter decor and brighten up your decorations.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 1 hour
Age range: 6 and up

Things you’ll need:

Paper Mache Flower Pot

Paints

Paint brushes

Felt

Pompoms

Easter grass

Easter eggs

Scissors

Hot glue gun

Things to do:

  1. Coat the paper mache pots with the desired paint color(s) and let dry. We went with pastels for that spring time feel.
  1. Draw out the ear shape with a pen on your felt sheet. Once you have the shape and size you desire, cut it out and trace it for the other ears. Our ears are about 4 inches high and 1- 3/4 inch at the widest part, which allowed for a good amount of space for the pom poms.
  1. Glue the ears in place on your pot(s). Once they are dry and secure, glue the pom poms in the center of each ear.
  1. Use black paint to create the eyes. Then to make the nose by painting a heart with a fine brush. And for the finale touch, paint on the whiskers.
  1. Once all is dry, it is time to fill in the pots. Grab your Easter grass and stuff it to the desired amount.
  1. Lastly, place the faux Easter eggs on top, approximately 5-6 eggs in each pot.
