This bright and colorful Clay Pot Carrot Container goes together quickly and easily with limited supplies I already had in my craft stash. Hide some treats inside and drop them off on your neighbor’s front porch for a sweet Easter, Passover, or Spring surprise.

Here’s how to create a Carrot Container from a Flower Pot:
To begin Clay Pot Carrot Container, gather all materials then remove all packaging and labels. Basecoat clay pot and saucer with Jack-O-Lantern Orange Americana acrylic paint. Let the paint dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary. Once the clay pot and saucer are dry, apply random swashes of Bright Orange and Canyon Orange Americana acrylic paint to replicate the texture of a carrot.
Measure a four-inch by nine-inch rectangle of Olive Kunin Felt with the MONOTWIN Permanent Marker, and then cut out with scissors. Fringe the nine-inch length of Olive Kunin Felt with scissors, leaving a one-inch section intact for rolling. Cut some narrow and some wide to replicate a carrot top.
Using a glue gun and glue sticks, apply glue to the solid section of Olive Kunin Felt and roll as tightly as possible. Work in small sections and take your time with this step. Attach the felt carrot top to the center of the clay saucer with a glue gun and glue sticks. Hold tightly in place until the glue has cooled.
Stamp the Expressionery self-inking stamper on white cardstock and let the ink dry completely. This Easter design was created by my sweet friend Laura Kelly and can be customized with your name! Color tag with Tombow Dual Brush Pens, I love the bullet tip for coloring small areas. Add pastel strips with Dual Brush Pens and then stamp over top. Add a message on the back of the tag, cut out around the stamped image, and then punch a hole at the top center to create a tag.
Measure and cut three lengths of natural jute twine 36” each. Line up lengths of twine, wrap around the bottom of the pot, and secure at the top center with a bow. Thread the tag onto one of the tails of the bow. Knot the tails of the twine and trim any long ends with scissors to finish.
