Crepe Paper Carrots

This is about as far as I've gone with Easter decorating this year. I saw a very basic tutorial on the Martha Stewart website. It suggests putting a trinket each carrot, but trinkets and little boys don't mix so I left them empty. Do what you will, but I think they are adorable either way!

Simple Crepe Paper Carrots:

1. Loosely wrap orange streamer to form carrot shape, making it thicker at top. Tuck in gifts as you work. Press end of paper down into top.

2. Fold green crepe paper in half across its grain. Cut out leaf shapes; bunch up. Tuck leaves into carrot top; secure with dab of hot glue.
