Preparing the Base of the Sign

To make the crackle effect on the wood board, apply a coat of school glue on top of the unfinished cedar plank. Let it dry fully.

Next, paint the cedar plank in Whisper (or any color of your choosing) and leave it to dry. As it dries, the surface will appear to crackle! If you want more info on how to make a crackle effect using school glue, check out this post.

Crafting the Decorative Carrot

Cut burlap into wide strips about 2-3” wide or use a roll of burlap ribbon.

Paint the burlap in orange. Make sure the surface is protected as the paint will seep through the burlap holes. Leave the paint to dry.

In the meantime, thread a piece of twine or wire about 8” long with wooden beads. This will be the hanger for the top of the carrot sign. Secure the ends to the top of the cedar plank.

Cut bunches of faux greenery for the top of the carrot. Place and glue the greenery to the upper half of the cedar plank, with the stems facing down.

Assembling the Carrot Sign

Next, begin to apply the orange burlap on to the cedar plank, covering the greenery stems. Working from right to left, work the burlap in a tight curve starting wider and then narrowing towards the bottom, creating a triangular carrot shape.

Lastly, add a small pre tied bow in twine to the top of the sign.
