You never know what you'll find at The Dollar Tree. And if you're me, when you do find things, you may not know exactly what you're going to do with what you do find until you do! I found these twine carrots when they first started putting out Easter stuff and was not sure what I was going to do with them but they were the kind of thing you just pick up, because.
- Twine Carrots (You could do this with plastic or fabric carrots as well) I used 3 pkgs
- Small Wire Wreath Frame (8 inch)
- Glue gun and glue sticks
I save good ribbon such as this twill ribbon that a beautiful new blanket Mr. Chocolate gave me for Christmas was wrapped in. Who knows when it will come in handy?
The first step was to wrap the wire frame. I love these smaller 8 inch wreath frames that Dollar Tree carries and they come in packs of 2!
I anchored the ribbon with a dab of hot glue, wrapped the frame, and then secured with another dab of hot glue.
Then I added my carrots, making sure that the tips all aligned as I went around.
I knew I should have bought one more package because as you can see, I didn't have enough to go all the way around. No worries. I had leftover ribbon so I just made a bow to fill the gap. I didn't bother to iron the ribbon because I figured since the carrot tops were not perfect, the bow shouldn't be either. I like that it looks vintagey and old.
And done! I have this empty frame on my cement accent wall in my office that I like to put seasonal accents in so that's where this is.
