I love how these 4 Tier Tray mini carrots Decor turned out. I used items I already had in my stash, so that's the best part of this tier tray DIY...NO COST!
In this tutorial I will show you how to make these 4 tier tray carrots using items you already have around your home.
How to Make A Fabric Carrot
- I created this template so I could cut out the carrot.
- I used a piece of carbon paper to trace the outline of the carrot onto the cardboard.
- I put a Dollar Tree cutting mat under the cardboard and a knife to cut it.
- I had this buffalo print fabric in my stash that I had gotten from Walmart a while back and decided to use it for my fabric carrot.
- I placed the fabric onto the cutting mat, I traced around my template, and then cut the carrot out of the fabric.
- I then took the fabric and folded it in half.
- I used my iron to make a crease in the middle.
- I started at the bottom of the carrot and sewed the carrot up to the top. I left the carrot open so I could put the stuffing inside.
I am not a big sewer so I don't know the name of the stitch I am doing and to be perfectly honest this is about the only thing I can do with a needle and thread.
- I turned the carrot right side out. I used a paper straw out of my stash at the bottom of the carrot to get it turned. My fingers are just too fat.
- I began stuffing the carrot with stuffing out of my stash.
- If you don't have stuffing you can use plastic shopping bags, paper towels, or newspaper.
- Again I used the paper straw to get the stuffing into the bottom of the carrot.
To make the greenery at the top of the carrot I cut some pieces off of a Dollar Tree Hula Skirt, a plastic cup with some water, and some green acrylic paint.
- I put some of the paint into the water and mixed it well.
- I cut pieces off of the Hula skirt and placed them in the water and paint mixture.
- I let it sit for a few minutes and then took it out and left it on a piece of wax paper to dry.
Once the grass was dry I tied a piece of twine at the bottom and secured it with glue. I then placed the tied end into the top of the carrot and used another piece of twine around the top of the carrot.
That’s it! Simple, and so stinkin’ cute!
