Carrot Ornaments From Dollar Store Candy Containers

Hey everyone! I'm always looking for ornaments for the 28" feather tree I decorate each holiday.
How cute are these carrots I found at the Dollar Tree!  
The green tops screw off and they were filled with flavored sugar.
I emptied the sugar and washed the bottles. After they dried I wanted to add glitter to some of them. 
Since I couldn't find a glue that said it worked well on plastic I tried a ceramic sealer I had from years ago...
Simply sprayed the carrots and sprinkled them with orange glitter I picked up after Halloween for 60¢.
Tied fishing line under the green top for hanging...
There you have it, an easy project that looks really cute on my tree!

    Since you're such a wonderful cook, do you have a recipe for a fabulous coconut pie? I really don't have a great recipe and have been graving a coconut pie! :)
