I am always on the lookout for fun Easter basket filler ideas. These darling jelly bean carrot treat bags are incredibly easy to make (even at the last minute!), and they are sure to be a hit with children of all ages. Perfect for tucking into baskets, these would also be perfect party favors for any fun Easter-themed gathering. Read on for the full how-to for how to make some carrot treat bags of your own, which feature a free printable gift tag to make putting together a “bunch” of your own as easy as can be. Let’s get started!
For this project, you will need…
- 12″ Cone Treat Bags
- Light Green 3/16″ Curling Ribbon
- Orange Jelly Beans
- 2″ Round Paper Punch
- Hole punch

To make more “child-size” carrots, I recommend beginning by cutting off 3-4″ off of the top of the cone bag. (Of course, you can also leave them at their full size for larger treats.)
Fill the cone bags about 2/3 full with the jelly beans, and then twist the top closed, as shown.
Cut a small section of ribbon, and use that piece to tie a knot around the twisted portion to secure.
To make a bunch of carrots, tie two of the closed carrot bags together with an additional piece of ribbon.
Cut 5 or 6 strands of ribbon that are each about 8″ long. Group these together and tie them around the twisted portion of the carrot. Use scissors to curl the ribbon, working from the base of the ribbon and outward.
Finally, use the round punch to cut out a tag for each treat bag, and then punch a hole through the top. String the tag onto one of the strands of curled ribbon, and tie in a knot to secure.
Your carrot treat bags are complete!
What child wouldn’t be delighted to find a bunch of sweet “carrots” and a little love note in their basket on Easter morning?
