Tips to Make Rustic Clothespin Carrots
- I got everything I needed to make these rustic clothespin carrots at the Dollar Tree. That’s half the fun, you know. But that’s not a requirement. You can find all of these supplies at a LOT of different stores. But if you’re concerned about finding clothespins, you can grab some here to get you on your way!
- The way these turned out was absolutely perfect for what I wanted. But if you want a more rustic look, you can use a more desaturated orange for the carrot body and then add some brown raffia or paler green ribbon bits to make the greenery and you’re really talking rustic!
- If you need a great way to display your little farmhouse carrots made of clothespins, you can make a quick DIY farmhouse tiered tray.
How Do I Make this Farmhouse Carrots from Clothespins?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Wood Spring-Style Clothespins
- Orange Acrylic Craft Paint
- Assorted Ribbons and Trims in a variety of Green Shades
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Wire Cutters
- Using wire cutters, take off the metal springs from each of the clothespins. Turn the clothespin halves back-to-back and glue them together.
- Paint all sides of the glued clothespins with the orange acrylic craft paint. Allow the paint to dry and apply a second coat, if desired.
- Cut 5-6-inch lengths of the various green ribbon options and combine into bunches of 5-6 pieces. Tie each bunch together in a knot in the center. Add a small dab of hot glue to the knot to secure it. To keep the 'leaves' from flopping around, press the ribbon together just above the knot while the glue is still hot to add structure.
- Glue one of the bunches of ribbon to the top center of each carrot. Then place them in your tiered tray and enjoy!
