Grab your supplies!!
- Scrap piece of wood
- Antiquing wax
- White Chalk Paint
- Sanding Block
- Wood bead
- Hot Glue
- Material of your choosing
- Mod Podge
The first thing to do is cover your scrap piece of wood with antiquing wax and wipe it off. I used a baby wipe and it worked nicely. After the wax is dry go ahead and dry brush the white chalk paint on and allow to dry.
Once everything is completely dry, use the sanding block to distress the edges. Now, just cut an appropriate sized piece of material into the shape of a carrot.
Use Mod Podge to brush on the back of the carrot and apply to the wood. I also brushed Mod Podge on top. I only had gloss on hand but matte would be best for this project.
Now we’ll take some raffia and thread it through a large wood bead that has been dry brushed with white paint. This part is a little tricky. I used a toothpick to poke it through, but if this isn’t possible you can glue the raffia down to the top of the carrot first and place the bead on top.
This sweet little rustic scrap wood carrot, perfect for spring and Easter, is all complete!! Use it in a tiered tray, a spring grouping, or even on the wall!! Wherever used, it’s sure to bring a touch of spring indoors!! Want to watch a replay of the video tutorial? You can see it here.
