Easter candy carrot craft

eastercarrot I’ve mentioned before that my youngest son has severe milk allergies, so holidays can be tough when it comes to buying pre-packaged candy. With this in mind, I wanted to figure out how to make the carrot candy wrappers so that I could stuff them with jelly beans or gummy savors. (The picture shows M&Ms, which I’m sure my oldest will gladly devour!)

So here’s what you’ll need:

  • Clear plastic cello bags
  • Green felt
  • Orange ribbon
  • Candies
  • Glue gun

And here’s all you have to do:

  1. Taking a cello bag, fold it from the bottom to the right side and tack lightly (image of fold 1) with hot glue, and then again (image of fold 2). I hope the pics help!
  2. Fill your new carrot shape with candies.
  3. Tie the top of your bag off with ribbon.
  4. Cut a 3×3 square of green felt. Starting at one corner, cut strips about a ¼ wide to the center of the square.
  5. Wrap the square, with the green sprays out the top, around the top of cello bag, above the ribbon, and tack with hot glue.

 Happy crafting!
