Repurposed Spindle Carrots

I couldn't resist making this project the minute I saw it!

Do it Yourself Spindle Carrots

Wendi from H20 Bungalow's Spindle Carrots made these gorgeous spindle carrots and I knew right away I had to give this project a try.

I'm going to let you visit Wendi for the complete DIY tutorial so I will just show you the ones I made this morning. 

I snapped this pic and put it on my Instagram and before I knew it I had orders for 3 sets of three carrots!

I had the perfect spindles for this project and became a little obsessed with them!

I mixed yellow and red chalky paint to make a gorgeous shade of carrot orange and got to work right away painting these beauties. 

I finished them off with a quick coat of clear wax that darkened the beautiful orange color.

And while Wendi did something different for her carrot greenery, I took apart pieces from faux flowers I had in my supplies. 

I think they are the cutest things ever!

I had a few pieces of the perfect sized wood cut in the shape of an arrow so I added some greenery to the end of these too and created my own version of a rustic DIY carrot.

I must warn you however that you might not be able to stop making carrots and will begin seeing carrots everywhere you go. 


Here are a couple of table legs that were just laying around my workshop and are now giant carrots.
