Carrots are king right now! I personally can’t get enough of them, so here is another great idea! This one is a farmhouse carrot garland! I love garlands! They are one of my favorite things to create! I know you want to get to the goods so let’s get started! 

Select and Cut Your Fabric

I chose orange, burlap, and black gingham. You can find the carrot template below as a free download!

To save time, I layered all my fabric, six pieces total (two of each fabric), and pinned on my carrot template that I printed out on cardstock and cut out.

TADA!

The next step is to either sew or glue your three carrots together. Leave the round top open so you can stuff your carrot and add your greenery.

Regular hot glue is what I use for this step. You may want to sew yours or use fabric glue, and that is totally up to you! 🙂

Next, you’ll stuff your carrots with polyfil or you could even use cut up plastic grocery bags. I like to use these opportunities to recycle. A pencil or skewer helps to get the stuffing into the carrot.

Almost Ready!

Before you close up your carrots, add some greenery to the top. I chose this boxwood, but you can use raffia, twine, yarn, fabric, etc. Add a bit of hot glue to the inside of your carrot and insert your greenery.

You will then add a bit more glue to the backside (or front side, it doesn’t matter) and then close up your top! Make sure to use finger protectors for this step so you don’t burn yourself.

How about some raffia bows to finish them off!

Look how adorable, y’all!! Now let’s add them to our garland!

I cut a piece of jute probably about five feet long, found the center and placed my first carrot. Once that middle carrot is placed, you can work your way out on either side. If you have Dollar Trees, I like those decor balls they sell, so I added some of those in between my three carrots. You can add as many carrots as you want, but I only chose the three.

The last step is to add end anchoring pieces. Sometimes I like to add tassels. This time I chose messy bows. I chose coordinating ribbons and even the same fabric and just criss-crossed my ribbons and tied them off with a piece of the black gingham and then gave it a good shake! In my opinion, I think they finished off the garland perfectly! It’s ready for my Spring mantel!
