Pallet wood is such a great medium to create with! It’s easy to acquire in most cases. Pallet wood is relatively inexpensive or even free, and it’s the perfect thickness for most small projects, like these Pallet Wood Carrots! Make sure to check out our other Pallet Wood Projects while you’re here!

Supplies needed for this project :

  • Pallet wood or other scrap wood
  • A wood cutting tool
  • Sander (Optional)
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Orange, black, and white paint
  • Wood beads
  • Jute twine
  • Darning needle
  • Green raffia (store bought OR Make Your Own!)

Step one : Draw and Cut Triangles

Grab a piece of pallet or scrap wood and use a ruler and pencil to draw long triangles onto the surface like shown.

Using a jigsaw, cut out your triangular pieces of wood. We stopped the cut before the edge of the wood to be safer and just made forward cuts and the pieces would just fall below.

We cut enough until we had several wooden triangles. I love a nice neat pile of anything. 🙂

Step two : Paint the Triangles

Next, I painted the pallet wood triangles orange. I used acrylic paint.

After the orange paint was dry, I used black paint to distress them.

Last, I took it a step further and added some white highlights to the wood triangles.

Step three : Add the Carrot Toppers

Once all paint was dry, I drilled holes in the short edge so I could add my topper.

I used a metal darning needle to add jute to the hole that I created.

The next few pictures will show you how I added the jute to the wooden carrot. I used a lark’s head knot to attach it once I had it threaded through the hole.

Afterwards, I added a wood bead and made a slip knot above that to hold it on.

Last, I added a green raffia bow as the green topper! And that’s it! Your carrots are complete! Make as many as you want when they’re this easy!
