Unconventional Easter Decor DIY for your Interiors because…when your Interior work is as versatile as an Egg, you go and make Carrots!
Let’s face it when it comes to Easter Decor that’s available for the mass market; it’s typically Easter Eggs, lots of cute bunnies, and a few carrots thrown into the mix. I have to admit the cute bunnies get me every time, what’s not to love about bunnies?
Easter is one of the most important and oldest holidays of the Christian Church. It’s the biggest Holiday after Christmas to decorate your interiors, to ‘Spring it Up’ and to make your Interiors feel fresh and fun! It’s the time when adding cuteness comes into play (just look at these bunnies!) How could you not like cute? I have posted past blogs for this time of year where Eggs were the focus take a look at my past Easter Blogs (links below) for more inspiration!
I stated earlier decorating with Eggs are the go to for this time of year and you may have already seen I’ve done quite a few Egg decor interpretations in the past. This year I wanted to continue the added touch of whimsy that I like to infuse into my Easter decor, but be unconventional by handcrafting and creating oversized fabric Carrots that definitely add all the right touches I was trying to achieve.
For those who have been following along on my latest creative journey you will know that I use the word unconventional when it comes to Events I host and Design, and it’s the way I like to Style and Design all Interior Spaces. So of course, when it came to this time of year and decorating for Easter ‘Unconventional’ became the big Carrot!
The word unconventional un·con·ven·tion·al/ˌənkənˈven : not based on or conforming to what is generally done or believed.
What you will need to create ‘Unconventional’ Carrots 🙂 !
- Fabric of your choice
- Scissors and/or Fabric Cutters
- Hot Glue Sticks and Glue Gun
- Faux Greens for Carrot Tops (here I used sourced faux ferns)
- Pillow Stuffing/Filling
- Sewing Machine
These Carrots were sized at 24 inches/61 cm tall and the pattern was freehanded for more versatility. Make sure to sew fronts of fabrics facing each other and leaving a 2 1/2 in opening at the top so that you can pull fabric through leaving fabric seems inside for clean edges and have enough space for pillow stuffing/filler. Also, having a stick or long ruler to help get pillow stuffing/filler to bottom tips is helpful. When wrapping the tops with twine and hot glueing them a second pair of hands would be helpful although I did it solo it can be a bit tricky although doable.
Some of the best reasons to try and attempt these is that not only are they gonna be one of a kind decor for your Interiors, these oversized Carrots are versatile encough to use throughout the year ie: fall harvest, outdoor planters or summer events etc…
These oversized Big Carrots not only will make for a great conversation, but will sure add those touches of whimsy, fun and most importantly add…
Unconventional Style for your Interiors!
