Easter Carrot Garland

Easter is almost here and this Carrot Garland is perfect to add to your Easter decor. Come and create this super festive and cute garland with us!

Easter is this week!
I have a project that is sure to lure the Easter Bunny to your home…
this darling Easter Carrot Garland!

Here’s what you’ll need:

All of these lovely products are available at The Ribbon Retreat:
The orange tic-tac fabric is “Life in the Jungle” by doohikey for Riley Blake.
The green striped fabric is “Mind your P’s and Q’s” by Keiki for Moda.
The ribbon is “Emerald with White Swiss Dot” in 3/8″.

Click on the ‘Carrot Pattern’ to print:
Cut your carrots!
12 carrots =24 total pieces

 We’re ready to sew!

Place two carrot pieces together…

   Use a 1/4″ seam allowance…

Just to reiterate…

Now run to your desk and grab a pencil to help you stuff your carrot with batting.
No need to over-stuff;
just use enough batting to make your carrots full and fluffy.

You will need to decide how to finish your edges.
Clipped? or Pinking Sheared?
Both are darling:)
I chose clipped.

 Make all 12 carrots following the above steps.
————————————————————————-
Now it’s time for the carrot stems!
Fold your fabric in half (to 9″).

These clips will provide a guide for us to tear our ‘shabby stems’.

Rip your 1″ x 18″ stems!

You will need at least 24 stems.

Time to assemble our carrots!

 Give all 12 carrots their stems.
Clip or pinking shear the top seams.

Let’s put this all together!

 I used 2 1/2 yards of ribbon for my actual garland.
The knotted ends will help to hang the garland on your mantle.

You are going to use your fabric ‘stems’ to attach carrots to the ribbon garland.

Hang all 12 carrots on your garland!
With the remaining 2 1/2 yards of ribbon, I added these fun extra ribbon details!

1.  Cut ribbon to 6″.

2.  Make a loop and place under garland.

3.  Place ends of ribbon through the loop. (around the garland)

4.  Pull to tighten.

Your garland is done!
This is a very simple, quick, & fun craft.
Get social & recruit some help to ‘stuff’ the carrots and clip the edges!
Honestly, you can complete this project in an hour!
You’re only one hour away from this:

It makes me happy to see a dozen carrots hanging from the mantle.
It definitely adds a punch of color and whimsy.
