DIY Easter Decor - Faux Potted Carrot Plant


Easter

After seeing that Dollar Tree had these adorable carrots this year, I was determined to come up with a faux potted carrot plant for Easter!  Here is how easy it is to complete, check it out:

Prep Your Pots

Using this spray foam insulation, I filled a few Dollar Tree plastic pots and let them sit overnight to cure.  Once the foam was ready I used a serrated knife to carefully trim the tops until I had a nice flat surface to work with.

(The pots, carrots and reindeer moss are all from Dollar Tree.

Easter
Adding Carrots

Next I used a metal chopstick to poke holes into my foam and inserted my carrots.  If you don't have a chopstick, a pencil, screwdriver or similar object will do.  After adding the carrots I secured them with a bit of hot glue.

Here are the carrots secured into the foam.  

Notice that I didn't place them at perfectly equal heights.  Having a bit of variation makes the finished look more realistic, so go ahead and play around here!



Easter
Completed Pots

Using more hot glue, I tucked in reindeer moss until all of the foam was covered.
And that's it; potted faux carrot plants ready for the Easter season.

As you can see, I've been working on some 'chocolate' bunnies as well, 
post coming soon 😉
