DIY Giant Easter Carrots

DIY Giant Easter Carrots

Today, I’m sharing a super easy Easter craft made from items found at the Dollar Tree stores – DIY Giant Easter Carrots. I’ve seen tons of fabric Easter carrots all over Pinterest and have always wanted to make my own version, so this Dollar Store Easter Craft Blog Hop gave me the perfect opportunity. All you need is a few basic craft tools and $6 worth of Dollar Tree supplies.

Optional

  • Create a string compass to measure 9.75″. 
  • Create a large circle on poster board with the string compass. Should measure about 19.5″ wide. 
  • Use the circle template to trace a circle onto the table cover and cut out. A large circle can also be drawn freehand.

Prep styrofoam cone

  • Use the tip of the scissors to make a 1″ wide x 1″ deep hole on the wide end of the styrofoam cone.

  • Put the tip of the cone onto the center of the round table cover. I wrapped two with the wrong side of the table cover facing out and one with the right side facing out. 
  • Add glue into the hole. Pleat and press the table cover into the glue.
  • Repeat the above step until all the edges of the table cover are pressed into the center of the cone.

DIY Giant Easter Carrots finishing

  • Unravel the raffia and cut a 4″ long bunch.
  • Add glue into the hole.
  • Press the raffia into the glue. Let dry.

  1. I would NEVER have thought to use a dollar store table cloth for that but those are adorable and go just perfectly with your moss bunnies. So clever. Pinned.

  2. Ciao, una grande idea per realizzare delle semplici a simpatiche carote. Un’idea in più per decorare la casa per Pasqua.
    Grazie per aver partecipato al mio Linky Party Buona Pasqua.
    A presto

  3. I love those giant carrots – so creative. I don’t think I have seen any of these on Pinterest; maybe I was not looking. But they definitely will make for some great Easter decor. I particularly that you can use them on the dinning table, mantel, in a basket, etc.
