Video tutorial on how to make DIY Foam and Yarn Carrots:
1. Using the knife, slice the craft foam ball in half. The flat edge of the ball should be about the same width as the flat edge of the cone. Glue the flat edges of the ball and cone together.
2. Poke the greenery pick into the top of the ball all the way down.
3. Begin wrapping the yarn around the greenery pick first then around the craft foam. Glue at the start of the yarn to tack it in place, then continue to add glue as you wrap the yarn around to help keep secure. Make sure to watch the video to see how Grace made these adorable DIY Yarn Carrots.
