DIY Surprise Ball Twist: DIY Surprise Carrots With Trolls

diy surprise ball carrot-spring-and-easter-craftWe just can’t stop that happy feeling when we think of Trolls. We loved those crazy and colorful-haired toys when we were younger, and then a couple years ago, Dreamworks introduced a whole new family of Trolls, and our kids fell in love, too. The happy, glittery and music-loving Trolls are the source of inspiration for our latest DIY spring project, DIY surprise carrots with Trolls.

We’ve seen creative DIY surprise balls where kids unwrap, unwrap and then unwrap some more to unveil a special gift in the center of the ball. We made a modern and spring (Easter) twist on the DIY surprise balls with these DIY surprise carrots. The stem of a carrot has never looked for bright with hues of pink, teal and black Troll hair; however, the fun of unwrapping remains solid!

We can’t wait to see Trolls World Tour. And, we’re thrilled it’s (almost) Spring! Celebrate with these surprise gifts.

DIY Surprise Carrots with Trolls

Materials:

  • Orange crepe paper streamer, WalMart
  • mini Trolls (these, or these)
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush

Directions:

Step 1: Begin by unraveling a bit of the orange crepe paper streamer. Place the mini Troll on the end of the orange paper, and begin to roll and wrap, and wrap and wrap.

Step 2: Continue to wrap tightly (don’t pull too tight to rip the crepe streamer), as you form the shape of a carrot. No carrot is perfect, so there will be lumps and bumps. Wrap the crepe paper around the Troll, and then wrap it below the Troll. Make this part thicker since there is no “base”.

Step 3: Once the crepe paper looks like a carrot, cut the end, add a dab of Mod Podge, and stick it to the bottom of the carrot. Then, top it off with a brush of Mod Podge, so it stays in place.
