Clay Pot Carrot
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love how fun it is to decorate for Easter. Carrots, eggs, and my favorite thing ever: bunnies. I love finding a fun way to bring it all together in a fun and easy way with a few crafts. But something was missing lately: something orange. I hunted up a few supplies and made this adorable clay pot carrot!
It’s the perfect quick craft for Easter decor because you can make it with a large terra cotta pot or a small one – anything goes! If you’re ready to make a fun Easter craft, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Terra Cotta Pot Carrot
- I was able to find all my supplies for this clay pot carrot at the Dollar Tree. There are a lot of places which carry these supplies – you might even find them in your craft room already!
- Going large for a porch display? If you plan to keep your terra cotta pot carrot outside, it’s a great idea to use outdoor acrylic paint like this. It’s for outdoor projects and is going to weather a little better in the sun, wind and rain. Be sure to seal it with a UV spray sealant, as well.
- This easy carrot jar made from clay pots is perfect as an Easter tiered tray idea. I decided to make a candy dish out of it which is why the top is removable, but you can use it as strictly decor and secure the top. No rules here, just fun.
How Do I Make this Clay Pot Carrot?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial – you’ll be in done in no time. Psst: if you want to skip the paint, you’ll be done in about 3 minutes. :)
- 4-inch Terra Cotta Clay Pot
- 4-inch Terra Cotta Clay Saucer
- 9 by 12-inch Dark Green Craft Felt Sheet
- Natural Jute Twine
- Acrylic Craft Paint in Bright Orange, Primary Orange, and Dark Orange
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Black Permanent Marker
- Paint the outside of the terra cotta pot and the bottom of the saucer with the primary orange paint then allow it to dry completely. If desired, add a second coat and allow it to dry as well.
- Apply random strokes of the bright orange and dark orange paint to add a bit of carrot-looking texture.
- Measure and cut out a 4 by 9-inch portion of dark green felt and cut out random-width fringe along the longer side, leaving about 1 inch intact for rolling.
- Working in 2-3-inch long sections, place a line of hot glue along the solid section of the fringed felt pieces and roll it tightly together. You should have a long, fringed carrot top when completed.
- Hot glue the carrot top to the middle of the clay saucer. Allow the glue to cool completely before letting go so it doesn't fall over.
- Fill the pot as desired then close the pot by putting the clay saucer on top of the pot, bottom up.
- Cut three lengths of twine about 36-inches long then wrap it around the pot and tie them together at the carrot top with a bow. Knot the ends of the twine and enjoy!
