Seriously, I make it a point to challenge myself sometimes to make a craft that is 100% Dollar Tree and I’m always so happy with the result. Plus, inexpensive crafts are like skirts with pockets – they’re just awesome. So, of course when I saw these twine carrots, I knew I had to make a fun Easter wreath!

Tips to Make an Easy Easter Wreath
- I love how easy and fast it was to make this farmhouse carrot wreath for Easter. But the ONE thing I would change is using a wooden wreath frame like these. I used cardboard because I planned to use this Easter wreath inside AND I was aiming for 100% Dollar Tree supplies. But, the wood wreath frame would be more sturdy and hold up a little better as a result.
- If you want to make this easy Easter wreath into a more rustic craft, you can use a bit of dry-brushed grey paint on the carrots once assembled. You’ll be surprised at how different that one change will make. But then, simply use burlap ribbon for the bow instead of the brightly colored ribbon I used and VIOLA!
- As always, I had a bit of trouble finding the supplies at my local Dollar Tree and I had to hit up one down the road a bit. If you’re running into the same trouble, don’t sweat it – you can grab the twine carrots here so you have the main element in hand!
How Do I Make this Farmhouse Carrot Wreath?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 20 Easter Carrots
- Cardboard (I recycled a shipping box)
- Orange Acrylic Craft Paint
- 1 White Shipping Tag
- Pastel Plaid Ribbon 2 1/2-inches wide
- Yellow Ribbon 1/8-inch wide
- Carrot Wreath Pattern
- Markers; Orange and Green
- Low Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Print and cut out the Carrot Wreath Pattern. Trace the pattern onto your cardboard then cut the outer circle out, followed by cutting out the center circle, leaving you with a donut shape wreath form.
- Paint the front, back and sides of the wreath form with the orange paint. Allow the paint to dry and apply a second coat, if desired.
- Once the paint is dry, place the twine carrots in the desired arrangement around the wreath form. The wreath form will fit 20 carrots if placed correctly.
- Hot glue the carrots one at a time to the wreath form. If you get to the end and the last carrot is a tight fit, keep in mind that you can gently squeeze the styrofoam form inside the twine a bit to help it fit.
- Using the wide pastel plaid ribbon make a large bow and hot glue it to the center bottom of the wreath. Cut notches in the bottom of the loose ribbon ends of the bow to help stop fraying.
- Write CARROTS 25₵ EACH on the white shipping tag using the green marker, then outline the tag with the orange marker.
- Use the skinny yellow ribbon to tie the tag to the bow and a second length of this yellow ribbon to make a hanger and enjoy!
