What You'll Need:

  • Green crepe paper streamers
  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
  • 2-1/2" bamboo skewers 
  • Orange crepe paper streamers 
  • Decoupage medium
  • Sponge brush 
  • Twine

Step 1: Make carrot tops

Cut a 36-inch length of green crepe paper streamer and fold into four 9-inch sections. Fringe the green material by cutting to the middle of the streamer width, leaving the bottom half unfringed. Hot-glue one end of the finished fringed streamer to the top of a 2-1/2-inch bamboo skewer, and wrap the tip of the skewer to create carrot leaves. Secure with hot glue as you go. 

Step 2: Make carrots

When your carrot tops are finished, add orange crepe paper to create the actual carrots. Hot-glue one end of an orange crepe paper streamer to the bamboo skewer, just below the leaves. Wrap the streamer around the skewer to form a tapered carrot shape; when you've reached the desired shape and thickness, trim the streamer and attach the end with hot glue. To finish the carrots, paint a thin layer of decoupage medium over the surface to hold everything in place and let dry.

Step 3: String garland

String the finished carrots to a twine garland to create the cutest Easter brunch decoration. Tie the carrots to a long piece of twine; wrap the twine around each carrot and tie a knot between the leaves and the carrot. Keep adding carrots to the twine at 6-inch intervals until your garland reaches the desired length. Use washi tape or wall-safe adhesive hooks to hang the garland.
