Classic Easter Carrot Cutlery Tutorial

Now on to today's post. 

I call this a "classic" Easter decor craft since it remains one of my most popular (and most pinned!) posts of all time, especially around Easter.  And I wanted to be sure to share it again in time for the big day.  I can't believe it's only a week away!

 


It's a really easy and festive way to dress up your Easter brunch or dinner table.  And yes, those are paper plates.  Do. Not. Judge.


  I found the idea in Family Fun Magazine back in 2006. I've tried to find their link again but now I get a site called Spoonful instead.  Not sure what's up with that, but that's OK because I've got it for you right here! 

Here's all you need:
Orange party napkins
green plastic cutlery
green pipe cleaners
(I used two different complimentary greens)

The napkins and cutlery were purchased at a party supply store and the pipe cleaners at Michael's.


Since I made these during my pre-blogging days I
don't have as-you-go pictures {sorry!}. 

So here's Family Fun's easy instructions:

For each carrot, fold one of the paper napkins
into a rectangle. Don't be afraid to re-fold them
from their original configuration, whatever that
may be (i.e., a square, etc.).  Place a set of
utensils across the lower left corner of the
rectangle, fold in the lower right corner as shown,
then roll it up loosely.


Wrap one or two green pipe cleaners around the
napkin and necks of the utensils, then twist them
to secure, as shown.  Cut down the pipe cleaners
to size.


And voila'.

Spoonful 








So simple, yet they really make a fun statement.  
 
Here's wishing you a happy and blessed Easter!
