DIY Tutorial: Crepe Paper Carrots

crepe paper and tissue paper carrot diy tutorial

With only a few simple materials like your household glue gun + scissors, these Crepe Paper Carrots (as seen in my daughter’s Snow Bunny First Birthday) are super simple and would be a creative addition to any Bunny Rabbit Theme or Easter Party! We used them as frame embellishments, as part of the dessert table backdrop, on sticks “sprouting” from mason jars, and scattered around the house for accent decor, but you can use them however you like! ;)

3. Loosely wrap the crepe paper around your ‘carrot foundation’ to form an organic carrot shape. When you have reached your desired size, work the streamer to the top of the carrot, then cut the streamer. Tuck the end of the paper down into the top.

4. Crumple up a small piece of crepe paper and insert it into the top of the carrot (This will help fill out the top). Use the hot glue gun to place the green tissue paper leaves inside. And tah dah, you have a freshly crafted carrot!
