How To Create a Classy Chevron Carrot Tabletop Art

Tabletop art gives life to our plain old tables in our homes or even in our own offices.  These tabletop arts can also adapt a theme, in accordance to the season.  Since Easter is just around the corner, we will be making a thematic tabletop art.  Carrot, commonly linked to rabbits, that are part of the Easter symbols, will be used as the subject of this tabletop art.  We will use a chevron design in the background to create a classy feel to it.  If you are in the mood for some art stuff, then this is the right time to make this.  Let us start!

Step 1: Prepare all the materials needed for this activity:

  • red and blue acrylic paint
  • cardboard
  • paint brushes
  • masking tape or paper tape
  • orange construction paper
  • scissors
  • green construction paper
  • gray construction paper
  • short pointed scissor
  • black pen
  • pencil
  • white glue

Step 2:  Make a series of chevron on the cardboard using a masking tape or paper tape.

Step 3:  Paint the lower part of the board with blue acrylic paint.

Step 4: Paint the topmost part of the cardboard with red acrylic paint.

Step 5:  Using both brushes, blend the blue in the bottom and the red on top in the middle of the cardboard to form a purple color.  This should look like a color gradient from blue to red.

Step 6: Let the paint dry for an hour or two.

Step 7: While waiting for the paint to dry, cut the orange paper lengthwise into two equal parts.  Sketch the body of the carrot using a pencil.

Step 8: Finalize the carrot body using a black pen.

Step 9: Cut the carrot body drawing.

Step 10: Sketch the top leaf of the two carrots using a pencil.  Finalize the drawing using a black pen afterwards.

Step 11: Cut the top leafs accordingly.

Step 12: Glue the top leafs on the body of the carrots.

Step 13:  Glue the carrots on the grey paper.  Let the white glue dry for a while.

Step 14:  Cut the carrots but leave a small border from the grey paper, thus creating a 3D-ish effect.

Step 15: Once the paint dries from the board, remove the masking tape or paper tape carefully.  You can now see the chevron on the board.

Step 16:  Arrange the carrots on the chevron board based on your preference.  Glue it on the board to permanently fix it.

Step 17: Done!  You now have your classy chevron carrot tabletop art.

Step 18: The Easter-inspired tabletop art is now ready for display.
