Etceteras: twine carrots


As part of my fall harvest, I made these fun twine carrots.


Last year I made these bright orange yarn carrots.


I was craving some neutral colors after the fun of all the Halloween projects and these jute and twine carrots were the perfect answer.


 
I glued some to cloths pins to embellish baskets and other goodies in my craft room. I’m thinking about adding some to mason jars and gift tags.


I love the different textures of the twine and jute together.


I have a feeling I’m going to be adding these little carrots all over the place.
