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’s a little over three weeks away? I cannot wait to start baking my favorite Easter sugar cookies, filling baskets and indulging in a slice of 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. 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 any 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 an easy Easter craft to make with your children or grandchildren, to give to family and friends and as suggested to use at your holiday table.
How To Make a DIY Terrain Inspired Easter Carrot Favors
Supplies for Easter Surprise Inside Carrot Favors
- Wrapping paper, orange, pink, or craft paper for neutral decor
- Tissue Paper
- green ribbon
- green easter grass
- sugar cones
- candy, jelly beans, M&M’s or small toys for kids
DIY Carrot Favor Instructions
Gather your supplies. You can find most, if not all of the supplies for these surprise carrot favors at The Dollar Tree, on Amazon or at your local store.
1. 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 in 5 x 5 squares.
2. Next, take a sugar cookie cone and place it in the corner of the wrapping paper. Then roll the paper around the cone and tape the back to hold the paper in place. Set aside the cones while you make the tops of the carrot.
1.Trace a circle on recycled cardboard using the sugar cone as a template. Then poke a hole in the center using your scissors or skewer.
2. Next take some Easter grass and lay it in a straight line.Tie it in the center with another piece of Easter grass to secure the strands.
3. Take the grass and fold in half. Then twist the bottom and stick the grass into the hole of the round cardboard circle.
4.Fill the wrapped cone with sweet treats, jelly beans, chocolate or small toys. Then 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 it seemed easier.
You can fill the cones with candy, small toys, or even mini cookies or leave them empty.
Don’t limit yourself to orange carrots, carrots come in all sorts of colors, purple, red, and white are also common. You could make carrots to coordinate with your decor or place settings.
If you are using them for place cards, hand letter the paper before you wrap the cone or use rubber stamps.
What to Do With Carrot Easter Favors
- Use as a place card
- Gift as small gift to family and friends
- Use as a party favor
- Add to Easter Baskets
- Make a bunch, no pun intended, and use as part of your Easter centerpiece

They are perfectly adorable, Elizabeth! Good job! My imagination is in gear, and I am thinking I could dip those sugar cones in melted white chocolate tinted orange. I love the simplicity of the method and think they will appeal to kids of any age. 🙂
Thank you Michele! I am going to try your idea too! Have a great week.
