  • Step 1

    Give your papier mache cone a coat of white paint. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.

  • Step 2

    Paint your papier mache cone orange. Allow to dry.

  • Step 3

    Cut up small, thin strips of brown felt.

  • Step 4

    Peel the paper backing from the felt to reveal the adhesive surface. Decorate the papier mache cone with the felt strips to create detail on your carrot.

  • Step 5

    Bend 2 green chenille stems into a ā€˜Uā€™ shape. Tape the chenille stems inside the cone to create a handle.

  • Step 6

    Cut up different sized leaf shapes from green tissue paper.

  • Step 7

    Decorate the inside top of your carrot basket with the leaf shapes. Attach with glue.
