Spring Carrot...From a Witch Hat?

 Featured on Home BNC - #24 - Be sure to check it out!

Did you know you could turn a Witch Hat into a carrot for Spring?  I'm here to show you how.
Last Fall I bought an extra witch hat metal frame at the dollar store.  I'm sure you saw them there.
I snipped the wire at the arrows, bent the brim parts down, and flipped the hat around.
Can you see where this is going?

I added some masking tape for reinforcement and placed the wire frame on the back of some fabric.

The fabric was attached with hot glue.
....and the frame was turned over.
Time to add the carrot top!  I found this 'spring bush' on sale for about $3.
It was cut apart and the pieces were tucked into the wire frame on the back.
A few dabs of hot glue were added to hold them in place.
The last thing it needed was a bow, so, out came some burlap ribbon and a piece of the carrot fabric to dress it up.

Attached and done!
Can I call this an upcycle?

Upcycle or not, next Fall when you see the witch hat frames in the dollar store, grab an extra to make a carrot the following Spring!

There is also a Witch Hat made from this frame.  
For Summer, there's an Ice Cream Cone.
Stop by to see it!

Pin It!

    1. Thank you, Niki! Every time I looked at these forms I saw carrots...I finally got around to making it!

  8. Genius! I made a Witch's Hat Wreath from one of these a couple of years ago, saw the frame again last year and passed because I didn't think I needed another. Now kicking myself because this is so perfect. Reminds me of those pictures "what do you see". Featuring when my link party opens!

    1. Thank you so much, Carol. Now you know to buy an extra when they come about again this fall!
