2021 Update on a Previous Post:

A milk bucket with carrots is a super quick and easy Easter decoration.

The milk bucket can be used for any number of projects. It's very easy to change out for the season and make just a little spot of decoration in the kitchen.

Filler Grass

Make a bed for the carrots with the vintage Easter grass. But, if vintage grass is not available, use Spanish Moss, wood wool or paper shred.

Carrots

We have several styles of carrots picks in stock. You could use a single pick and snip the carrots off or use a bundle of carrots.

Ribbons

Use any sort of spring ribbons that compliment each other. For a smallish bow, use 1.5" width. We used wired ribbons for the milk bucket with carrots arrangement.

Here are some suggestions for 1.5" ribbon but we have many, many more to choose from.

Note: I love, love, love this ribbon! We have other colors in it too.

Summary:

Partially fill the bucket with a crumpled newspaper. Place some of the pale vintage Easter grass on top of the paper, enough to cover it up.

Untie the bundle of three carrots and place them in the bucket. Untie the spray with five carrots and place around in the bucket.

Cut the carrots to the length needed or just bend the ends. We put the milk bucket with carrots together without any hot glue.

To make a permanent arrangement, you could use hot glue. I don't usually do this with things I make for around the house. If you've followed our blog, you've seen this same bucket show up at fall, summer...etc)))

Make a simple bow using the two ribbons. The denim ribbon in the image was just a scrap piece and no longer in stock.

Save your ribbons scraps! Sometimes are you need is just a short piece or two. The denim ribbon above will look just as good!

Secure the bow to the handle of the bucket and tuck in more grass as needed.

Quick and easy!
