Easter DIY to Try // Carrot Cupcake Toppers

After yesterday’s super easy Easter egg project, I thought I would make another simple DIY for the upcoming holiday. But admittedly, I’m egg-ed out at the moment. At least for today. SO I went in another direction…carrots.

These colorful DIY carrots would make cute cupcake toppers for the kid’s table at Easter dinner. But they could work for the adults too. I think? Here’s how to make your own…

Make These Carrot Cupcake Toppers for Easter


thin cardboard // scissors // craft paint // paint brush // pencil // black marker


This is so easy! I freehanded some simple carrot silhouettes on cardboard. Then, I cut them out and painted them. I added a black outline all the way around each carrot and added a couple of detail lines as well. Then, I added small bamboo skewers to the carrots with glue and stuck them into cupcakes after the glue was dry.

Here’s the step by step process in photos…

And if you’re not a fan of carrots, you could easily create little bunny silhouettes, Easter baskets, or eggs this same way.

P.S. Does that carrot, in the photo above, look like it’s smiling at us? Or is it just me?
