Paper Carrots

Pin It
 
 
 
 
Decorating for Easter has kind of slipped by the wayside this year.  The holiday really did sneak up on me!  Searching around Pinterest, I found quite a few crafts that could be made quickly just in time for the big day.
 
There was this pin but of course there was no link to the actual directions.  Grrrr, I hate when that happens!  I like to credit the creator and I am unable to do that when there is no link. 
 
Anyhow, I decided to dig out some old wallpaper stock I had in my stash.
 
         
Finding some that was suitable to make carrots, I trimmed the wallpaper to the desired size (actually once they were all glued, they turned out bigger than expected!) and using my hot glue gun, I glued up the sides.

 
 
Trimming the top, I used a paper hole punch and evenly spaced holes around the top of each carrot.  Then I cut some green yarn, folded it in half, fed it through the holes and pulled the end through the loop and pulled until snug.
 
 
 
Adding green fake grass, I filled with candy and they are ready to go.
 
Happy crafting and remember to give your loved ones a hug!
