Peep Wreaths are So Fun For Easter!

One of my favorite Easter projects is the Peep Wreath.

These are so easy to make, and you can eat them, too!   =)

You Will Need:
  • A Wreath Form (Styrofoam or Straw)
  • Peeps in Spring Colors
  • Sturdy Toothpicks
  • Pastel Ribbon
  1. To make the wreath, I begin by wrapping the wreath form with ribbon that is easy to poke a toothpick through.
  2. Next, I use some ribbon to make a hanger and affix it to what will be the top of the wreath.
  3. Now I can start to pin the Peeps to the Wreath by sticking a toothpick through it, usually in the back of the neck, at a slight angle so they don't slide off.
  4. Mix the colors and directions of the Peeps.
  5. When the wreath is well covered, make a decorative bow from your ribbon.  Here, I used some white ribbon and some purple ribbon.
  6. Occasionally, a Peep will slide off, and may need a second tooth pick to stay put.
  7. Note that some sugar coating will fall off the Peeps, so sweep the floor below it daily.
These are super cute, simple, and they make a great conversation piece.
