Vintage Clothespin Carrots for Spring

I'm so excited to share this fun project today that combines my love of so many things! Vintage clothespins, the color orange, Spring and Easter, these are a few of my favorite things.
Vintage Clothespin Carrots for Spring

I began this project with a handful of vintage clothespins. I gave them a quick, and I mean quick, coat of orange paint.

I wanted the vintage clothespins to have some of their original patina. The orange paint came out more like a stain which was perfect! If you can't find vintage clothespins then faux vintage clothespins will work
Next, I drilled a hole in the top of each of the clothespins.

I added a drop of E6000 glue to the tip of a small cutting of faux greenery I bought at Michaels. You can find similar greenery on Amazon.

I stood the clothespins on the edge of a glass jar to dry.

You could add a little fine orange glitter to the carrots or leave them in their rustic glory like I did. If you love repurposed Easter projects I have many on Homeroad. Follow the bold link to see some of my favorites.

I'm pretty sure I could make a carrot for Spring out of anything. You can see the spindle carrots I made recently by visiting the bold link. The pedestal dish is also one of the projects I made that I use all the time!

These carrots are going to look so pretty in my rustic farmhouse style decorating for Spring. You can find a set or two of these carrots on my Homeroad Etsy Shop. Get them before they are sold out!
