Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is typically observed on the first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox, which falls between March 22nd and April 25th. This year, it falls on April 4th. Easter is a time for family gatherings, delicious food, and fun activities like egg hunts and decorating eggs.

One of the most popular symbols of Easter is the carrot, which represents new life and growth in springtime.

Before we dive into the tutorial, let's take a closer look at some fun facts about carrots and their significance during Easter.

Supplies DIY Dollar Tree Carrot Basket for Easter

5 packages of Dollar Tree Carrots

Dollar Tree Wire Basket

1 packages Dollar Tree nautical rope (mine was the 11.4 ft one)

Hot Glue Gun/ Glue sticks

Burlap fabric (I had some on hand but you could line the inside of the basket with any fabric you have)

Instructions For Your DIY Dollar Tree Carrot Basket for Easter

Start by adding a line of glue around the bottom edge of the wire basket. Add the nautical rope on top and repeat this until you have used the entire nautical rope. Mine went around 4 times. Make sure to add the glue were the wire sections meet to help adhere the nautical rope better.

Next add a line of glue down the side of a carrot and press firmly onto the wire basket. Repeat this process until the entire basket is covered with the carrots.

I decided to line my basket with some burlap fabric I had but this step is not necessary.

If you want to line the basket, I started by adding a line of glue around the inside rim of the basket and added the fabric over top.
