They are similar to the Jenga blocks I've used for many projects but smaller.

I began by gluing 6 blocks together in the shape of a carrot and one block across the top.

I used hot glue to glue the blocks together. 

On the top I drilled a small hole to add a sprig of greenery.

Any kind of greenery will look adorable growing out of the top.

Orange craft paint and a dry brush gave me the distressed look I was after.

I used a fine grit sandpaper to sand the edges of the blocks. 

I added a wooden skewer to the back of the carrot with hot glue and it was ready to stick in a plant.

Add the carrot to a vase of flowers for a cute decorative look for Easter. 

Give a bouquet of flowers with a carrot pick for an added little gift!

You can make several carrots from one dollar box of blocks!

Leave off the skewer and you can fill a bowl or a tiered tray with wooden carrots too.
