Carrot Bouquet DIY
Your home could use more carrots this Easter! This cute Carrot Bouquet DIY is easy to create and will add the perfect pop to your seasonal home decor.
What you need:
- Pencil, Scissors
- Burlap Foldover
- Glue Gun & Sticks
- Sewing Machine & Thread
- Medium Weight Felt (Olive)
- Snuggle Baby Yarn (Tangerine, Marigold, Ginger)
- Lightweight Felt (Yellow, Orange, Golden Yellow)
What you do:
Step 1: Cut out eight Large Carrot patterns and eight Small Carrot patterns, using Yellow, Orange and Golden Yellow Lightweight Felt. (See Large Carrot & Small Carrot patterns)
Step 2: Pair ‘carrots’ by size and colour. Pin and sew together at 1/4” (0.6cm), leaving an opening at the top.
Step 3: Snip the excess felt off the tip of carrot and on either side of the opening, careful not to cut into the sewn area. Turn inside out.
Step 4: Stuff the Carrots with scrap felt, fabric or fibre fill. Starting 1/4” (0.6cm) down from the top, glue yarn onto the front half of your carrots to add texture.
Match the yarn colour to the carrot colour. Your carrots should look like this when finished.
Step 5: Gather stitch around the opening of the carrots, leaving a slight opening for the Fronds. Tie off the thread and snip the excess.
Step 6: Cut out Frond patterns from Olive Medium Weight Felt. Glue Frond into the small opening at the top of the carrot. Small Fronds for Small Carrots / Large Fronds for Large Carrots. (See Large & Small Frond patterns)
Step 7: Bundle the finished carrots together with Burlap Foldover. Use glue to secure in place.
