DIY SPRING PAINTED CARROT GARLAND using REPURPOSED Dollar Tree items



   The minute the weather starts to warm up I start thinking about SPRING ! Baby bunnies, vegetable gardens, baby chicks,flowers blooming and Easter will be here before you know it!

I saw these candy containers at the DOLLAR TREE and thought they could be repurposed into a cute garland for the Spring.

 Here's what you will need:

                                      
1 pkg. of 8 carrot shaped candy containers
 
Open the package, pop off the caps. ENJOY or dump the candy out.  Save the containers and set the containers aside for now.
(more packages if you prefer)
 You need green jute, also from the DOLLAR TREE
Scissors
ANY Dark Brown craft paint
Dark Orange paint, I used Charleston Clay
 
 
Paint in the indentations and top,using the brown paint.
Let dry
 
Paint with orange
Let dry
 
Cut 1 yd. of jute per carrot.
Loop 2 '' at a time, pinching one side.
 
Use your glue gun to put a little bit of glue around the inside lip of the container.
 
 
 
Aren't they cute?
Use the loops to hang on another piece of jute cut to the length you like.
These would like great as table scatter or place setting or hung on a wreath.
Let me know what you do with your carrots!
Thanks for stopping by,

  14. I have many bags of these carrots. The tough part was consuming all that sugar! After a holiday our local dollar store reduces the prices on seasonal candy and I could get them for 4 for $1
