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.
[Tweet “DIY Giant Easter Carrots & Easter Craft Blog Hop #Easter #bloggerswanted”]
Supplies – Items in blue were bought at Dollar Tree:
- styrofoam cones – 3x or the amount you want to make
- green raffia
- orange tablecloth
- poster board (optional)
- glue gun/hot glue
- 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.
- 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.
- Unravel the raffia and cut a 4″ long bunch.
- Add glue into the hole.
- Press the raffia into the glue. Let dry.
That’s it! The Moss Bunnies are ready to dine on their DIY Giant Easter Carrots!

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.
I love these carrots! There are super cool and they’re so Easter.
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.
Hey Erlene! Loving these carrots so much I am featuring them and your Easter Rag Wreath friday on the P3pary Feature Post!
Yippee! Thanks so much for the feature 🙂 and have a Happy Easter.
These are adorable — I love Dollar Store crafts! The moss bunnies are super cute too!
Thanks so much Dee. I’ve always wanted giant carrots…now I need to work on a giant bunny for next year…lol.
Such a fun idea Erlene! Thank you so much for sharing it with us over at Pretty Project Party!
Appreciate you stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful Easter.
These giant Easter carrots are fabulous! Such a great craft idea! Pinning!
Great idea Erlene! Love the tufting on the carrots to make them look more realistic too!
How cute! Love the idea. So perfect for Easter, Erlene.
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.
This is too cute! Might even need this year round in my desk area!
Very clever craft Erlene and super cute!
I always enjoy your creativity. I got a little scared there for a moment when you said make a compass, flashbacks of math!
What a great idea for carrots! I was waiting to see how you made them. I’m in Love!
