HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. Mix about a quarter of white and orange paint together to create a lighter orange color.
  2. Take your vases and start painting the outline of the carrot using the mixed orange paint. easter simple carrot crafts
  3. Fill in the carrot with the mixed orange. Allow 10 min to dry.
  4. Next take the regular orange and use it to add a little contrast to the lighter orange by adding stripes along the carrot. Let dry for 10 min. easter simple carrot crafts
  5. Stick the greenery in the vases for the tops of the carrots and that’s it! So easy! Just make sure to wash out your paintbrush.
