Decorating for Easter along with Christmas is my most favourite times of the year! The soft pastel colours sure do breath a little bit of colour into your day. So after making our Bunny Door Hanger, he needed some carrots to munch on of course.
Let’s get creating!
Check out the other fun Easter Projects for you to make:
- pine offcuts cut into triangles – I used my jigsaw to cut them out
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Curio
- Brush – I used my Cling On! R12
- Sweet Pickins Milk Paint – Sweet Potato
- Sweet Pickins Milk Paint – Clear Wax
- IOD Decor Stamps – Rose Toile
- IOD – Black Ink
- 120 grit sandpaper
- Shredded Tissue Paper – I found mine at Big W but this type from Amazon would do the trick
- Chux Cloth
- Glue Gun
Step 1 – Mix up 1tsp of Curio with 1tsp of warm water and also 1 tbsp Sweet Potato to 1 tbsp of warm water. Let sit to combine. Cut out your carrot shapes using your jigsaw. Then using your sandpaper sand away any rough edges.
Step 2 – Taking a chux cloth wipe over the carrot with your Curio stain. Let completely dry. The give 2 coats of Sweet Potato using your brush letting each coat dry completely.
Step 4 – Distress lightly and wax to seal.
Step 5 – For the top of the carrot use your glue gun to attach the shredded tissue paper.
And your all done! They would look great poking out of the top of an old wire basket or part of a vignette. Wherever your imagination takes you.
