With Spring around the corner I was in need of some festive Spring decor…that’s how this project started…then it morphed into Bunny Bowling!
The boys and I were taking a walk in the neighborhood when we came across a home build site [diggers and dirt, oh my!]. They had just finished the foundation framing for pouring and there was a pile of these 2×4 triangle scraps. My brain has been churning on them ever since.
A few more walks by, and I asked to take some home (they looked at me like I was crazy, but loaded up my tote bag. Thanks fellas!).
Then, I saw this post by Jaime at That’s My Letter and was inspired.
Aren’t these so creative and adorable?
My boys don’t really get into kitchen play though. With Spring around the corner I was in need of some festive Spring decor…that’s how this project started…then it morphed into Bunny Bowling! No DIY around this house is typically a singular idea. What starts out with one purpose usually always finds a few other uses.
You can cut a 2×4 into triangular sections, or use what scraps you have on hand.
I started by giving each piece a good sanding. Take some sand paper and smooth over every side, corner, and edge. I didn’t want any sharp or splintered areas.
From there I simply painted the entire triangle orange and then added some green leafy area.
After letting them dry they were ready to go. I had a few to go in a cute planter pot for the front porch decor, then a few for my entry table with some spring decor, but SILLY MOM these carrots were for kids. They were quickly snatched up and next I knew we were Bunny Bowling!
So whether you use them for Spring decor or as a quick Easter game, these quick and cheap carrots are sure to delight.
