I'd probably use actual twigs for the arms and maybe break up a briquette or two of charcoal for the eyes/mouth/buttons. The charcoal would be messy, but maybe you could coat it with clear nail polish or polyurethane or something to keep it sealed? Otherwise, maybe color some of the dough black (I'd probably use dutch-process cocoa for some of the main dry ingredient in the recipe) then let it dry, but not bake it and crumble off some coal-like chunks.
As for carrots ... maybe look up some instructions online for marzipan fruits and veggies, but just make it with your dough? Or see if you can find some dollhouse grocery items?
