Easter Carrot Decor
I always have fun creating seasonal displays on our dining room sideboard and I thought that I would go with a carrot them this year. I pulled out my carrot napkins that I bought a couple of years ago from HomeSense and printed an 11×14 version of my McGregor’s Carrot Patch sign to display you might remember it from our spring kitchen last year.
Although I wasn’t planning on buying anything new this year, I did end up picking up a felted ball and carrot garland from HomeSense. It was a little heavy for what I wanted and a little too much green! but I knew I could use the components to create something more my style. While I did feel a little guilty pulling apart a brand new garland, I love the new one so much more!
DIY Carrot and Wood Bead Easter Garland
This cute carrot and wood bead Easter garland can be made in less than 30 minutes and adds a special touch to any Easter decor. You can customize it to whatever colors or embellishments you’d like.
- 0.8mm clear elastic bead cord
- wood beads I used the 20mm and 16mm beads
- felted balls I bought the original felted ball garland from HomeSense but you can find felted balls HERE
- felted carrots similar ones HERE or other embellishments you could easily make your own carrots from felt
- crafting needle or other needle with a large eye
- twine optional
- Cut the clear elastic cord to your desired garland length leaving some extra length. Knot the cord through the needle. Create a knot at the other end of the cord large enough that it won’t slip through the felt ball.
- Choose the pattern you would like to use for your garland. I used a 16mm bead, 20mm bead, 16 mm bead and then alternated between a felted ball or felted carrot.
- Thread through a felt ball and ensure that the knot will hold. Continue with your pattern until you have your desired length garland. Knot the end and cut the cord leaving a slight tail.
- If you would like loops at the end of your garland to hang, loop some twine around the clear cord and knot.
- Hang or display where you would like.
And there you have it! A fun and simple carrot and wood bead garland. I hope this inspires you to add a little carrot decor to your own home. Check back tomorrow for our full spring dining room tour and even more spring decor ideas. 🙂
