Recycled Blue Jean Carrots for Spring

I love recycling donation clothing! Recently I made carrots using recycled fabric and I'm doing it again! It's so easy why stop?

I began with denim from the donation bin once again.

Actually they are the jeans I grew out of during "the stay at home". 😩

Enough said on that subject... 

I cut off one of the pants legs and cut out 2 triangles from the fabric. 

I hot glued the triangles closed and turned them right side in.

I used pillow stuffing to stuff the carrots, pushing the stuffing down to the tip with a chop stick.

A few zip ties, raffia, greenery and done!

They are perfect for this cute little dough bowl I found at Tuesday Morning.

I've made sherpa carrots, drop cloth carrots, burlap carrots and many more.

My denim carrots are tied with a fringed bow made from a strip of the denim too. 

This fall I also used recycled jeans to make denim pumpkins!

Any kind of ribbon you have at home will look great too!
