Easter Carrot Lantern Arrangement

Sharing is caring!

Learn how to make this gorgeous springtime design – an Easter carrot lantern arrangement! It’s made with bright seasonal colors and adorable carrot accents. 

Easter is just around the corner and this Easter lantern topper would make a welcome bit of decor to any fireplace or front porch. 

I love how the bright orange florals and ribbons accent the ever-so-seasonal carrot decals.

Bonus: This design is the perfect accompaniment to the Easter wreath we just made in the Wreath of the Month Club. It’s almost like they were made for each other (hint hint!).

How to make an Easter carrot lantern arrangement 

1. Create your bottom spray

First up, our bottom spray. 

Begin by combining a yellow and orange floral spray with one piece of blue-green fern and one airy fern. 

Add a final yellow floral spray and a white floral spray, then zip-tie the ends together. 

2. Make a smaller top spray

For the top spray of your Easter lantern topper, repeat these steps with slightly shorter stems, this time omitting the extra fern greenery. 

3. Attach your elements

Line up your completed sprays with the stems facing each other. Leave about 3-4 finger lengths between the sprays, then zip tie in a few places for a strong hold.

Trim any excess stems to remove additional weight. 

4. Add carrot ornaments 

Attach one carrot ornament to the top of your bottom spray, pushing florist wire through the foam carrot and wrapping it around the spray to secure it. 

For the second carrot, use bind wire to wrap around the carrot top and wrap around the end of your bottom spray.

5. Create a multi-ribbon bow

Now, the fun part – the ribbon!

Lay down your 2 ½” carrot ribbon, putting your swag on top and eye-balling the center mark. Here, pinch and pleat the ribbon, then measure 12” for a 6” loop, pinch, and twist. 

Repeat for a total of two loops, then trim the tail. You can add a sneaky tail of ribbon behind your bow for more color without the bulk.

Repeat these steps with your 2 ½” checked ribbon and 1 ½” orange gingham ribbon, working on top of this base. 

For the ⅝” macrame ribbon, repeat these steps with slightly smaller loops, completing three loops in total. Add a couple of extra streamers to the back of the bow for extra color. 

Secure the center with a florist wire, then use the ends to attach to the center of your swag. 

6. Attach and finish your Easter carrot lantern arrangement

Use rustic wire to attach your completed swag to the top of the ribbon. 

For the finishing touches: dovetail ribbon streamers and fluff loops, and add extra scraps of faux florals and greenery throughout, using hot glue to secure.
