Even though Easter is a few weeks away, I couldn’t resist creating some fun carrot eggs for my mantel.
These were super easy and fun to make!
Instead of using dye for my eggs, I dabbed on orange craft paint with a sponge. This paint technique dried very quickly which was an added bonus.
The carrot tops were formed by folding a 4×4 square of green tissue paper.
After folding the tissue paper, adhere it to the egg with a dab of hot glue, then gently pull apart the layers of tissue paper to create fullness.
Brown shredded paper in a vintage dish looks like a carrot garden!
Be sure to come back tomorrow to see my Easter themed mantel. Here’s a sneak peak!
