Dollar Store twine carrots are so much fun to craft with!

Dollar Tree twine carrots have been a fan-favorite and spring crafting staple for a few years now, and it’s not hard to see why.

These cute little carrots can be suited to any decor or crafting style. The orange twine adds a pop of color that can be highlighted with other brightly-colored accents. Or the orange can be downplayed with black, white, and neutral accents for a more rustic or farmhouse style.

I’m no stranger to crafting with these foam and twine carrots. Here are a few other crafts I’ve made with them:
