Steps:

  1. Use a foam cutter or knife to cut the foam ball in half. Test fit it on the cone to be sure it doesn't hang over the edge.

  7. Using the foam cutter or a pointy object make a hole in the foam ball. Fill the hole with hot glue and insert the taped end of the rick rack. Allow glue to dry.

  11. Once you have wrapped past the rounded end of the carrot, you can start to wrap a few times without applying glue then glue one wrap. Work your way to the end of the carrot.

  13. Apply glue to the end and swirl the yarn towards the center. If you plan to wrap the carrot again, do not cut the yarn. If not, cut the yarn and adhere the end with hot glue.

  15. Work your way back up the carrot, again applying glue every few wraps until you reach the rounded end. Then apply glue and wrap all the way to the carrot top. Cut the yarn and adhere the end. Enjoy your carrot! :)
