crepe paper and tissue paper carrot diy tutorial

With only a few simple materials like your household glue gun + scissors, these Crepe Paper Carrots (as seen in my daughter’s Snow Bunny First Birthday) are super simple and would be a creative addition to any Bunny Rabbit Theme or Easter Party! We used them as frame embellishments, as part of the dessert table backdrop, on sticks “sprouting” from mason jars, and scattered around the house for accent decor, but you can use them however you like! ;)
