DIY Farmhouse Dollar Tree Spring Carrot Arrangement Tutorial...

*Start by purchasing some little wooden carrot cut-outs from the Dollar Tree. They were $1.25 for a pack of 10. They also had little wooden chicks and egg cut-outs too.

*Purchase some cute spring themed scrap-booking paper.  I actually purchased some cute printable paper from a fun little shop on ETSY.  There are literally tons of cute printable scrap-booking paper options on ETSY.

*Trace the little wooden carrot cut-out to the back of a cute scrap-booking paper.

*Cut this traced paper piece out.

*Using a small foam brush, brush a thin layer of Modge Podge or Elmer's glue to one side of the little wooden carrot cut-out.

*Place the paper cut-out onto the wooden cut-out.  Using something with a flat edge like a ruler, carefully rub the paper down on to the wood to remove any air bubbles.

*Let the paper dry well.

*You will have a little bit of paper hanging over the edge of the wood.  Carefully, sand the paper to remove it from the wooden cut-out.

*Rub a little brown eye shadow or shoe polish around the edge of tje carrot to give it that fun grungy look.

***Do the steps above for all 5 of the carrots!***

*Decorate each little carrot with some jute bows, rick-rack, lace, burlap, tulle or whatever fun trim things that you have.

*Glue a little greenery to the top of each carrot for the carrot tops.

At this point you can use these darling little wooden carrots as you please...in an arrangement, on a spring wreath, in the hands of a bunny or as package or basket tags, etc.

To make a spring/Easter arrangement:

*Glue a wooden skewer to the back of each little carrot.  Trim the wooden skewer down to approximately 7 or 8 inches.

*Grab the container of your choice.  I used a vintage flour sifter. 

*Fill the container to within an inch from the top with a piece of Styrofoam.

*Glue the little wooden carrots down into the Styrofoam.  1 at center, 2 at the front sides and 2 in the back sides of the container.  If 5 carrots are too many for your container than please feel free to use less.

*Fill the top of the container with a little faux basket grass or excelsior moss.

*Personalize a fun little tag to go with your arrangement.

Walla, now wasn't that fun?

Enjoy!  Please "share" this fun little tutorial with your family and friends!
