You can make some amazing things from wooden shims, you can get a pack of 12 of them from Home Depot or Lowes for less than $2.00! I was playing around the other night with them and put two together and thought they kind or=f resembled a carrot! So that is how I came up with the DIY wooden shim carrots! Follow along and see how I made them!
Greenery, I used box wood from Walmart
Orange acrylic paint
First paint two shims orange and let dry, I painted both sides of each.
Second, cut a few sprigs of boxwood or whatever greenery you chose and hot glue them to the top of the fat end of the shim. Then run your hot glue down the whole shim and add you second one on top. Squeeze them together tightly until the glue holds.
Third, glue a small amount of spanish moss to the top of both sides just under the greenery.
Lastly, make a small twine bow and glue it to the top and add your button to the center.
How super cute and easy are these DIY wooden shim carrots!
I love how these turned out! They would make a great filler for a dough bowl, or on a tier tray. The possibilities are endless!
