What You Will Need

Twine Carrots – You can find these at the Dollar Tree, Dollar General or you could find them online as well.

Nautical Rope – Reach for Nautical rope to create a cover for the metal wreath. It will hide it and allow your carrots to glue nicely.

14 Inch Metal Wreath – Then you can use any size of wreath but I used a 14 inch wreath for this fun wreath. If you want feel free to make it larger or smaller in size.

Hot Glue Gun – Then you will use a hot glue gun or even a glue for attaching the carrots. I prefer to use hot glue.

Scissors – Make sure to use nice and sharp craft scissors. It works best at cutting nice clean cuts.

Variations and Tips to DIY Carrot Wreath

Looking for ways to change up your wreath? If so let me share a few ideas for you, along with tips for success.

  • You can use plastic carrots or fabric carrots instead of jute twine carrots. They all work and it allows for a variation to the wreath.
  • Work carrot by carrot so that the hot glue doesn’t harden before you get the carrot placed on the wreath.
  • You could use a foam wreath as the base. I find the metal worked best for me, but feel free to use what you have on hand.
  • Use a different shape instead of the carrot, bunnies, flowers, etc.

Step Two: Bunny Ears

If you want to make bunny ears you can use some thin metal and shape ears out of it, and wrap at the top of the wreath.

Or you can buy a bunny shaped wreath. Then wrap the jute twine around the ears, and hot glue to secure.
