Easter is a little over a month away so I have begun decorating and getting my craft on and I started out with some carrots.  Just like Halloween, I wanted to dress up my little hallway area and I kinda sorta challenged myself.  The challenge was to decorate the area for Easter but with no eggs whatsoever.  After about three days of thinkin' I thought I would try to make carrots out of styrofoam cones. 
Yep, I thought it and I did it.  Check it:



Okay, so here is the low down to this faux bunny food craft.  I started out using two different size styrofoam cones and cut each one in half.

I then sanded the edges to smooth them out and I also sanded the tips to give them a more rounded look.


Next, I began to paint the cones.  I painted them the same way I painted the…
