Here's how to create a Spring Wreath with Mini Carrots:
To begin the Carrot Wreath, gather all materials and remove supplies from the packaging. Download, print and cut out the DOLLAR TREE CARROT WREATH PATTERNS below ⇓ Trace onto cardboard with a pencil.
Cut the large circle from recycled cardboard with scissors. Cut the smaller circle from recycled cardboard by piercing the point of the scissors through the middle and then cutting out the center circle.
Basecoat the front, back, and sides of the recycled cardboard wreath form with Jack-O-Lantern Orange Americana acrylic craft paint and a flat paintbrush. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Once dry, fit the Dollar Tree twine-wrapped carrots around the wreath form until you are pleased with the composition. The eight-inch wreath form pattern will fit 20 of the orange twine carrots. Remove the carrots and attach them one at a time to the wreath form using a glue gun and glue sticks. You can use liquid craft glue, just allow for drying time.
The last carrot was a bit of a tight fit, so gently squeeze the foam-based carrot between your fingers and thumb to make it skinnier, and then insert it, securing with glue.
Tie a bow with pastel plaid ribbon, cut a triangular notch from each end, and attach to the bottom of the wreath with a glue gun and glue sticks. On a white shipping tag, hand-letter CARROTS 25₵ EACH with 245 Sap Green Dual Brush Pen and then outline the tag with 925 Scarlet Deep Orange Dual Brush Pen using the bullet tip. Attach the tag to the wreath with a length of skinny yellow ribbon tied in a bow through the plaid bow. Glue a loop of skinny yellow ribbon to the back of the wreath to create a hanger.
