Button Carrots

Make the ribbon topper first by tying together a few lengths of green ribbon. Keep one of them looped long to use as a hanger – or plan to hot glue a pin to the back for wearing. Stack random orange buttons largest to smallest. Then sew from the knot of the ribbon down through all the buttons, then back up the other hole and tie your thread off. You can make it tight so that the carrot holds firm shape or loose so that your carrot has some movement – cute!
