Easy Easter Craft: Baker’s Twine Carrot

For the past several years I have been decorating for Easter and spring.  Each year I think about decorating with bunnies, eggs, and flowers.  I felt like I needed something else in my Easter decor, but I didn't want another bunny or egg.  So I made a fun carrot to go with the bunny :).
It was super easy to make.  I just took a styrofoam cone (got it from the dollar store) and some orange baker's twine.

I cut the cone down a little bit because I didn't want a huge carrot.  Then with my glue gun, I started gluing the twine at the tip of the cone.  I just went in a circle, gluing every once in awhile.

I wrapped the whole cone.  Then for the stem, I cut out some glitter paper.  I just used a circle punch and then cut the slits into the paper for the stem.

I glued the paper on and that's it!  Super easy!

I just love how it turned out.
