I created my costume using orange felt with a sheer orange overlay. I randomly tucked the sheer overlay over the felt and stitched it in lines across both the front and the back pieces to create the “ridges” in a carrot. The top portion of the carrot is made from two different sized wreath frames that I wired together and then hand stitched the felt and overlay to the frames. This framework allows the body of the costume to hang freely. The headpiece is made from a funnel with fabric glued to the outside and ties to hold it around the head. The top greenery portion fits perfectly into the top of the funnel. I’m sure I received quite alot of funny looks at the craft store when I was “trying on” the wreath frames to make sure they would fit over my head and then holding the greenery up on top of my head!
