Today we’re making a quick and easy spring craft that is just a step above a beginner craft. This is a perfect DIY project to start with if you’ve been afraid of using a drill. We’re using my favorite drill, a Dremel, to make an Easter egg carrot!

How to Make Carrots Out of Wood Easter Eggs
Start by painting your wooden Easter egg. I used texture paint here but that’s mainly just because that’s what I had on hand.
Fee free to use whatever color or type of paint you want. You could even use chalk paint and distress this egg if you decorate your home in farmhouse decor.
Here’s one of my little painting tips: I use these furniture floor protectors to keep my eggs from rolling around while they dry. I found them at my favorite thrift store and I don’t even know if anyone makes this kind anymore. Let me know if you find them somewhere.
Next, drill three holes in the flat side of your egg. This is where you’ll stick in your leaves.
If your egg doesn’t have a flat end, you could still drill in the wider end of the carrot. But the flat end just makes it easier to control the Dremel.
After that, you’ll just cut your fake fern apart, stick the ends in E6000 glue, and then stick the leaves into the end of the egg. (Watch the video below if you want to see me do this.)

Finished Easter Egg Carrot
And here’s how the finished Easter egg carrot turned out. Pretty cute right? I was going to sell them in one of our local shops but I had some Facebook followers request them so they never even made it to the shops.
