How To Make DIY Wood Bead Carrots

Start by separating the wood beads into the number you want for the carrots. I chose to use 2 small beads, 4 medium beads and 1 large bead.

Here is a really cool tip to make painting wood beads so much easier. Place the wood beads onto a bamboo skewer.

For this craft, I was able to fit 14 beads on the skewer to make 2 carrots.

Stick the end of the skewer into a piece of floral foam, and start painting. If you’ve ever tried painting wood beads before, I’m sure you’ll understand why I’m so excited about this tip.

It makes it so much faster to paint a whole bunch of beads at once. Another quick way to color the wood craft beads is to dye them.

I shared how to dye wood beads here. Both of these options will save you so much time!

Next up, continue to paint the craft beads until they are the color you want. I went with 2 coats for the orange carrots.

The cool thing about placing them on skewers in floral foam is it makes it easier for them to dry. I use a heat gun to speed up the drying.

Once they are dry, string them onto the twine and tie a large knot at the end so the beads are secure.

Hot glue a piece of greenery to one end of the “carrot”. As soon as you add this stem, it really looks like a carrot!

The last step is to tie a piece of orange and white baker’s twine below the greenery. So what do you think? Aren’t they just the cutest?
