Stuffed Carrot Wreath for Spring

Sometimes I like to just mess around in the workshop and see what I come up with. Today that was my plan and I think my project is pretty darn cute!

I began this project with a piece of orange burlap.

I ironed the burlap flat and folded it in half.

Using one of my new favorite packs of spring stencils from Amazon, I chose the one that welcomes Spring. 

I'm pretty ready for Spring for sure! 

I used white craft paint to stencil the words.

Next, I cut the burlap into a realistic carrot shape with a cute little tip on the bottom.

I used hot glue to go around the carrot edges to seal them closed. 

I used orange and brown craft paint to add realistic details to my carrot.

It was then that I needed to re-stencil the words to make them darker, this was no problem I just laid the stencil down where it was and gave it one more coat of white.

Now it was time to stuff my carrot. 

I'm using pillow stuffing and a ruler to get the stuffing down to the tip of the carrot.

Next, before I sealed the top, I gathered a bunch of faux greens and stuffed them into the top of the carrot.

I used the hot glue to seal the top opening. 

I used shredded gift box paper for a Spanish moss like look at the top of the carrot. 

Now I looked around for something that would give my carrot a little stability and I found this old metal clock part.

I hot glued the carrot to the metal circle then added rebar wire for a handle.

This project turned out even better than I had expected!

I think the painted detail on the carrot made all the difference.

I can hang this on my front door, on a grapevine wreath, or use it to decorate indoors.
