We’ve always adored lacing crafts here. These Cardboard Lacing Carrots are so simple, too, and a great way to learn about triangles as all you really need to do is cut a triangle from a piece of cardboard and start lacing.
Not only have we just loved the end result of lacing crafts, the texture and design, but they’re great for burgeoning hand/eye coordination. We’ve done these Cardboard Lacing Cotton Tails, Paper Plate Lacing Apple Trees, and a reader favorite, our Cardboard Lacing Hearts. And many more fun yarn crafts, too!
For our Cardboard Lacing Carrots you will first need cardboard. We cut the flaps from regular shipping boxes and cut our triangles from there.
The remainder of the supplies include a single hole punch, orange and green yarn, scissors, and clear tape.
Cardboard Lacing Carrots
- Single hole punch
- Yarn – orange, green
- Clear tape
Begin by gathering a piece of cardboard. We used a shipping box.
Cut two triangles from the piece of cardboard.
Then punch holes all around the triangle. Make sure you’re careful that the holes toward the points don’t meet.
Snip a long strand of orange yarn. Insert one end into a hole and tape in place. Apply a small piece of tape around the other end to make it easier to lace.
And begin lacing through the holes. We went through each hole at least 3 times for our carrots.
Once you get to the end of the strand of yarn, tape the end in place on the back. If another strand is needed, simply tape in place and do the same as you did before.
For the carrot leaves, cut smaller strands of green yarn. Double up the yarn with a loop, and push through the top holes.
Once through, gather the ends of the yarn and pull through the loop, tightening the yarn in place. We did this twice for each hole.
Trim any excess yarn if needed.
Your carrots are ready for the Easter bunnies!
