Supplies You’ll Need to Make a Spring Wreath

First things first, let’s talk supplies. The beauty of this project lies in its simplicity and affordability. You’ll need:

  • A trip to your local Dollar Tree (or any dollar store) for a wooden carrot blank.
  • Assorted scrap fabrics. These are readily available at craft stores and fabric stores. Choose a variety of mix and match patterns in a singular color theme.
  • Fabric scissors
  • Hot Glue
  • Optional embellishments: ribbon for a bow, bling, a basket and some tulips.

Step-by-Step Creation of Dollar Tree Carrot with Ruffles

Step 1: Cut Your Fabric into 2″ wide Strips

Lay down your carrot and decide on the arrangement of your fabric patterns before cutting strips.

You might want colors that are evenly spaced or perhaps in a more whimsical, clustered pattern. This is where your creativity shines!

Step 2: Making the Ruffles

Take your fabric strips and glue them down starting at the edge of your carrot. Skip a space before gluing the next section down to create a ruffle effect. Repeat this process until all your ruffles are happily in place.

Step 3: Adding Fabric Topper

Now add a bit of green fabric to the top of the carrot for a faux stem look. You can use actual greenery or fabric, your choice. You can also mod podge the fabric in place or simpy use hot glue like I did with mine.

Step 4: The Finishing Touches

Now, the fun part—embellishments! This is entirely optional, but adding a coordinating pretty ribbon bow with some bling in the center can elevate your carrot to the next level. Attach with hot glue.

The carrot is complete and now we can attach it to a thrifted basket using a zip tie and add some tulips! Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to do this; it’s all about making something that brings you joy.

  • Variety is the Spice of Life: Don’t hesitate to mix and match different fabrics and colors of fabrics for a more dynamic look.
  • Weatherproofing: If your wreath will be exposed to the elements, consider spraying it with a clear protective spray to keep it looking fresh throughout the season.
  • Group Crafting: This project is perfect for a crafting party. Invite friends or family over for a wreath-making session. It’s a great way to spend quality time together and everyone leaves with a beautiful creation.
