Create this easy DIY Carrot Door Hanger with just a few supplies. It’s so easy to make and looks great on a door or in a basket.
How cute are these carrots? I love the way they turned out! When I saw these baseball bats at Walmart I knew I needed to make something with them.
My first thought was to paint them with my go-to FolkArt paint in Barn Wood, then add some FolkArt paint in White Adirondack on top to make them look like distressed carrots. Then I thought about wrapping them in chunky yarn or orange burlap. I finally settled on using them as a form to make this adorable carrot door hanger that I wrapped in batting and covered with fabric.
- 3 carrot baseball bats from Walmart
- Batting – I used crib size Poly Fil extra loft batting from Hobby Lobby cut into 3 15×20 inch pieces
- Fabric – The fabric I used is from Hobby Lobby. You will need 3 12×19 inch pieces of cotton fabric.
- Hot glue
- Burlap – from Hobby Lobby

- 3 Green picks – I used sage picks from Hobby Lobby.

Remove carrots from packaging and press the handle end of the bat in using your fingers to form a tip.
Wrap each of the bats with batting using hot glue to attach. Trim of excess on the ends. I made sure to keep it as tight and snug as possible, especially on the narrow part so it kept the shape of a carrot.
Next I used my sharp scissors to carefully make a hole on top to add my green pick. Once I made a hole I pushed in my green pick and it was nice and secure. If you don’t feel comfortable using scissors, you could use a drill to make a hole.
I then added the fabric, wrapping it tightly around, securing it with hot glue.
Around the top and bottom of carrot, I folded the fabric in and secured it with hot glue.
Once all the carrots were done, I wrapped them all together with burlap ribbon. I added some raffia around the top and added the cute carrot tag.
To hang, I hot glued some twine on the back.
You can watch my video on YouTube to see how I made this.
