Supplies Needed

I was just positive that I had some cardboard cones in my craft room and I was ready to make these cute carrots when I found the orange and green yarns at the thrift store!

But when I got ready to make them I couldn't find those cones anywhere!! But my mom is like me and has almost every crafty thing known to man and she had some cones that she gave me!

I think these with the yellow ends were probably used to hold the thread for sergers.


First, I painted the cones with Cinnamon Apple orange paint so that any gaps between the strands of yarn wouldn't be noticeable.

Then I began wrapping the orange yard around and around. I started by putting a bead of glue around the bottom and starting the yarn there.

Once I got to the top of the cone I put the end of the yarn into the cone and coated the end of the cone with glue. It dries clear so while it looks kind of pre-school now it won't for long! 😂

Here they are all covered with yarn. Now to make them look more like carrots!

I used some green rick-rack trim around what is now the top edge of the carrot.

For the carrot tops, I made some pom-poms with my Clover pom-pom maker. I used the large pom-pom maker for the larger carrots and the medium for the smaller carrot.

I made a little yarn tassel and put the knotted end inside the cone and left the cut ends hanging out like roots!
