Free Standing Carrot DIY
What you need:
1/4 inch ply wood
Jig saw with a scroll blade
Scrap 2×4 pieces
Step 2: With your jigsaw cut along the marker lines using a fine cut blade or a scroll blade. Do this for as many carrots as you want.
Step 3: Once they are cut out you can add your base coat of orange and a base coat of green. Do these base coats on the front and the back!
Step 4:Watch our video below to see how we added details!
Step 5: Once the paint is dry, spray a clear coat sealant to keep them from fading. After this is dry you can tie a bow with the ribbon of your choice around the neck of the carrot!
Step 6: Take a scrap piece of wood at the back of your carrot on the bottom and drill holes so the carrot will stand freely!
If you’re putting this in your yard I recommend laying a brick or concrete block on top of the wood to make sure the carrot stays standing!
