A fun carrot spring wreath for your home decor at Easter or throughout the spring season. Make this wreath in just minutes by following the directions below. This one is super easy and will make a unique statement on your front door. The cones for our crafting were provided by FloraCraft as part of our Crafty Hangouts series.
- Cut a StyroFoam ball in half and add to the top of the cone with hot glue.
- Cut a piece of felt into a funky or fun shape and stick into the top. Secure with a little hot glue.
- Start wrapping at the very top with orange yarn. The top will need to be secured in a few places with hot glue so it does not slide off. After that you can wrap the rest rapidly without securing.
- At the bottom use hot glue and quite a bit of yarn to create a carrot “tip”.
- Wrap a frame in burlap or strips of any fabric for a wreath form.
- Tie the carrot on with jute twine and secure with a little hot glue as well to hold in place.
- Tie on a fun spring saying to your wreath as well.
- Hang on your door.
Enjoy this carrot spring wreath all season long. Be sure to see all of the other cone crafts at Crafty Hangouts. What would you make with a cone for spring?
Y’all Jen Goode from 100 Directions is here again this month with a free printable sweet treats kit that you will love. This one is perfect for wedding favors or heck just a fun way to give sweet treats to anyone on your list. There are some major changes happening on this website in case y’all have noticed. I am ironing things out over the next few days. Hang onto your hats!
This month’s printable I took on the challenge of creating something to add to your wedding. To me, weddings are so very personal, you have the opportunity to personalize every tiny aspect of your day if you want. So, I wanted to make sure to create something you could add yourself to. I created a tiny treat bag with a selection of embellishment pieces and parts so you can put together every little bag with that special touch that is uniquely your own.
I also found that wood and metal box while thrifting a few weeks ago. I is actually not old but it sure does look it! I added a galvanized pail on top with an Easter themed tag.
My large twine wrapped eggs came out of storage as well. Perfect on top of an old rusty wire spool.
The star of the show and what my mantel is built around is this neon pom pom wreath. I promise y’all will get the full instructions for this one very soon.
