Easy Easter Craft Idea: Paper Straw Carrot



Spring is here!!  Even though it doesn't feel like it.  One day we have a snowy day, so I decided to get my spring/Easter decor out.  Once I got it all out, I felt like it needed something else.  It need something with a fun color.  So I made a fun carrot with paper straws.

This is how I did it:
I just took some straws, 5x7 piece of card stock and glue gun.

I cut the straws to make the carrot.  I made it a pretty fat carrot, it probably would be cuter a little skinnier.

Then I glued the straws onto the 5x7 piece of paper.

Here it is all glued one.  I love that it's 3D.

I put it into a frame without the glass and put it with my Easter decor.  I love how it looks!!

I absolutely LOVE this project! SO cute! I'll never look at those paper straws the same again! Could even do an Easter egg design too! Thanks for the inspiration!
