DIY Easter surprise carrot favors are perfect for baskets or to use as place card holders at your Easter dinner. These hand-crafted favors can be filled with tasty treats, M&M’s, jelly beans, chocolates or small toys.
Hippity Hopity – Easter is on its Way! Can you believe that Easter is just around the corner? In fact it is only three weeks away? I cannot wait to start baking my favorite Easter sugar cookies, filling baskets and indulging in my once a year carrot cake. This year I am also adding DIY Terrain Inspired Easter Carrot Favors to my baskets and to my table.
Last year I made edible Easter cone favors in cellophane bags, and although I liked them I wanted to make something a little more festive this year, something that reflected the season. I came across these Terrain and Anthropologie carrot surprise party favors and I think they are creative, whimsical and a fun addition to my holiday table.
To be honest, I really didn’t want to spend $24.00 for four of them much less $48.00 because I need 6. I also did not like the toys inside, I would prefer a sweet treat like M&M’s or jelly beans. In order to get what I wanted I decided to make my own Easter carrot party favors and it could not have been easier. These Easter carrot favors are wonderful craft to make with your children or grandchildren to give to family and friends and as suggested to use at the holiday table.

Instructions for DIY Carrot Favors
Gather your supplies, most if not all of the supplies for these surprise carrot favors are from The Dollar Tree.
Cut a square of wrapping paper or tissue paper. I used orange wrapping paper and using the guide on the reverse I cut my paper 5 x 5 squares.
Next, take a sugar cookie cone and place it in the corner of the wrapping paper, roll the paper around the cone, tape the back to hold the paper in place. Set aside white you make the tops of the carrot.
To make the top of the carrot, trace a circle on recycled cardboard using the cone as a template then poke a hole in the center using your scissors or skewer.
Next take some Easter grass and lay it in a long line, then tie it in the center with another piece of Easter grass to secure the strands.
Take the grass and fold in half, twist the bottom, then stick the grass into the hole of the round cardboard that you just made.
Fill the wrapped cone with sweet treats, jelly beans, chocolate or small toys, place the grass cardboard top onto the cone. Fold the excess paper around the grass stems and tape.
The original Terrain surprise carrots are made using tissue paper, you can use that as well, if you prefer. I used the orange paper from The Dollar Tree because I liked the color better.
Don’t limit yourself to orange carrots, carrots come in all sorts of colors, purple, red, and white are also common. You might want to make carrots to coordinate with your decor or a more neutral palate. I think craft paper carrots are a great idea.
If you are using them for place cards you can hand letter the paper before you wrap the cone or use stamps.
