Step 4

Wet felt with water, stretch around carrot, and pin overlapping areas together. This will allow the felt to mold to the shape of the carrot.

Step 5

Pull felt at the tip of the carrot and twist to shape. Let felt dry completely.

Step 6

Once dry, remove pins and use Fabri-Tac to glue seam. Do this while the felt is still on the carrot. Once adhesive is dry, remove carrot.
