Easter Carrots

My daughter and I did a little blog theft this weekend.  We took and idea from here at Cinnaberry Suite.  The minute that we saw these carrot decorations, we knew that we already had everything we needed to make them.   We had a crib for our first three kids that fell apart, literally.  I've insisted my husband keep the pieces all this time, because I knew that I would be able to use them for something, someday.  In the meantime, my hubby has been finding ways to use these spindles for things like, stakes for trees, etc.This project took longer to dry, than actually make.  My daughter primed it, painted it orange, and then washed it with an off white.  We decided to do the wash, as the orange was too close to red.  After much impatient waiting. We wer finally able to hot glue some old ivy that I had stashed away.  Then we tied a green ribbon over the hot glue to hide it and make it look better.The entire project was free.  I think they are very cute!  By the way, my daughter is 11-years-old and will be taking these to the county fair.  I think she'll do great.
