How to Make an Adorable Easter Banner 

I am sure you have seen stuffed fabric carrots at local gift stores.  They are so adorable, and I am always tempted to buy them.  Fortunately they are really easy to make and best of all cheap.  You can make several using a fabric quarter or scrap fabric.  These DIY fabric carrots are easy to make, cheaper than purchasing, and you get to choose the fun fabrics.

 Lay your fabric out and cut the pattern.  As I was making two carrots of each fabric, I folded my fabric and cut out two carrots at once.

Once your fabric is cut, cut a piece of thin twine about a foot long.  Fold the top of your carrot over so that it covers the twine an press in place.

Holding the twine against the fold and away from the sewing seam, sew the ironed edge along the top of the carrot.

Fold your carrot in half good side facing.  Place on the sewing machine and start sewing the closing seam.  Make sure to place your needle just below the twine.  Sew along the entire edge until the point at the bottom of your carrot.

For my banner I made six fabric carrots, two in each pattern.

Making the Ribbon Leaves for the DIY Fabric Carrots

The leaves for these carrots are made by simply folding ribbon.  Fold your ribbon into three folds making sure their is a long tail.  Sew a simple seam across all the ribbon folds to hold into place.  Cut the end of the ribbon.  Repeat for the other carrots.

Making the DIY Easter Banner

You can hang your banner on the mantel, the wall, along a shelf, or even in a window.  Measure where you want the banner to hang.  Cut your twine 2 feet longer than the measurement.  Use the extra twine to tie a simple bow at each end of your banner twine.  

Hang the banner twine where you want the banner to be.

Using the small twine on each carrot wrap the twine from the front of the carrot, around the banner twine and the tie in front of the carrot.

Repeat with the other carrots.  As the carrots are hung using the twine and not ties to the twine they are easily moveable.  Adjust the spacing for your carrots to a look you like.

DIY Fabric Carrots

A couple of years ago I made a bunch of stuffed fabric carrots, but I did not make them into a banner, so they are put together a little bit differently.
