Spring decorating isn’t just about bunnies and florals anymore! This year the carrot has kind of taken center stage! Let me show you how to create an adorable carrot using orange yarn tassels! I started this project off by making a reverse canvas. 

Supplies needed for this craft :

Let's build our frame!

removing the canvas from the frame for a reverse canvas craft

The first thing you do is remove the canvas from the frame. I used an xacto knife for this process.

After you remove the canvas from the frame, lay the frame back down onto the canvas and trim around it with the xacto knife or a rotary blade.

Next, add some antique wax to your frame. I use a baby wipe for this process. That is a tip that I learned from the friends on my Facebook page. I love our community there.

Once your frame is covered in the wax, use hot glue to add your canvas to the back of the frame.

Now, this next step, I did out of order, because sometimes I get ahead of myself. Lol I added black gingham fabric to my canvas. This should have been added before I glued the canvas back onto the frame, but it worked out pretty good even though. I used mod podge to do this. A silicon spatula came in real handy for this step.

Now, let's create our carrot!

I decided to lay my carrot at an angle for this piece, starting with my greenery. Boxwood is a greenery favorite, so naturally I used several bundles of that. I secured them all together with twine, then glued them down at the stem.

Next, let's add our tassels!

If you need to know how to make tassels, please check out my easy tassel tutorial >>HERE<<. I made six tassels in graduated sizes. Three small tassels, two medium tassels, and one large tassel. I made my tassels with only ten loops, because I wanted them to be slim. The three small tassels I added first, right below my greenery, covering up the stem part.

Next, I layered the medium tassels, covering up the knobs of the small tassels. You may notice that these tassels are upside down. That is part of what makes this craft so fun! Typically, you see tassels hanging the other way. I don’t like to follow the rules ALL the time. 😉 I used hot glue to attach my tassels to my fabric covered canvas.

Last, I added my largest tassel, covering up the knobs of the medium tassels. One of the reasons why I made the tassels in different sizes, is so they won’t fall forward when you display this adorable carrot.

My finishing touches were spanish moss and a burlap awareness bow! To learn how to make this bow, check out my easy bow tutorial >>HERE<<!
