First, cut the bottom off of the brown paper bag. Hold the bag up and unfold the bottom part. Then cut along the crease where it was folded. Save the bottom piece because you will use it later. Next, find the line on the back of the bag where it was sealed together. Use scissors to cut along the line. Lay the bag out flat. Fold the paper bag in half.
Start rolling up the bag from the bottom into a cone-shape. Keep the bottom part somewhat tight and allow the top to remain a little more open.
After you get a cone shape, add a little dab of glue to hold the paper bag together.
While the glue is drying, mix up the paint. (I used Apple Barrel paint in the color Harvest Orange.) Pour the paint into a cup, add a little bit of water, and mix well.
Use the paint mixture to paint the paper bag carrots. Lay them aside and let them dry.
For my second carrot, I mixed a little bit of cinnamon into the paint. I'm not sure exactly how much I used, but it was enough to make the paint thick.
While the paper bag carrots are drying, it's time to make the "stems". Cut about 6 - 8 pieces of jute twine into 14" long strips. Hold all the strips together and fold them in half. Take a smaller piece of twine and tie the strips together at the bottom.
After the paper bag carrots are completely dry, fold the top edges of the bag down inside the cone.
Put a good amount of glue around the bottom part of the twine that is tied. Then stuff it down into the top of the cone. Squeeze the top of the cone onto the twine to make sure the glue gets on the insides of the bag.
Now lay the paper bag carrots side by side and cut a piece of jute twine long enough to tie around them and make a bow.
Remember the bottom part of the paper bag you cut off in step one? Grab that, and cut out a small square. Use a marker to make a "price tag" for your carrots.
Glue the price tag to the bow tied around the carrots.
That's it! Now you can decorate with your paper bag carrots!
