Mark and cut off one end of a spindle and create this cute concept

Looking for seasonal decor ideas? This fall, adorn your dining room table with a centerpiece of carrots made from small spindles. A bundle of these beauties would also delight a child with a pretend kitchen in their playroom. No matter what you use them for, everyone is sure to be captivated by these whimsical carrots.
Don't be surprised if you get addicted to making this project. You might even start wondering what other produce you can make from everyday objects. With a little imagination, it's possible to create an entire cornucopia for your autumnal table. A bevy of wooden beads could become a group of grapes, while a big wooden ball could be an apple or pumpkin.

Instructions
1. Mark and cut off one end of a spindle with the jigsaw so that it's tapered like a carrot.
2. Paint the spindle with “Vivid Orange” or a similar acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry.
3. Cut about eight pieces of raffia ribbon — four short and four long — to create the leaves. Twist the ends of the ribbon together.
4. Drill a hole in the top of the carrot. Insert the twisted ends of the ribbon to make sure it fits, then hot glue the ribbon into the hole.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 with the other two spindles.
6. Gather the carrots into a bundle with a piece of twine. Tie a bow with the twine, and trim the tails. Unravel the ends of the twine to give it a weathered look.
