I made an easy update to my Burlap wreath with some easy twine wrapped carrots. Remember that Easy Burlap Bubble Wreath, I made for Valentine’s day? Go ahead. Check it out. I’ll wait here.
Okay, so I took out the hearts and the lovebirds, and decided to update this wreath with something more Spring appropriate.
This time, instead of going with glitter, I wanted my wreath’s accessory (Yup, my wreaths have accessories because they are fancy like that) to be rustic like the burlap.
I decided to make some easy twine wrapped carrots. Kind of like these yarn wrapped carrots.
I whipped up three carrots in no time. Another easy craft from Grace. Who’s keeping the tally for my easy crafts? Maybe I should start more challenging crafts…
What you’ll need:
-Jute like this
-Orange Craft Paint
-A foam brush
-Greenery for the top of the carrot (I used Onion grass like this one)
-An old magazine
What you’ll do:
- Take a couple of pages from the magazine and roll it into a cone.
- Keep rolling pages until you have a carrot size that you like.
- Cut your greenery and shove it in the top and down the center of the magazine carrot
- Glue the beginning of the jute/twine to the magazine carrot and start wrapping it around the carrot form (tip: do not try to be perfect. Just wrap the twine haphazardly. I like to wrap all over the place. For two reasons. 1. I think it looks organic and 2. It’s easy, and you all know how I feel about ease).
- Tuck the end of the jute/twine under what you have already wrapped. If you want, glue the tail end down.
- Paint your carrot with craft paint (tip: I added a little water to my paint, and just blotted the paint onto the carrot).
- Attach the carrots onto your burlap bubble wreath (I used green floral wire to attach my carrots) for a cute Spring update or wherever your heart desires.
An easy update to an easy wreath!
