Easter Peeps Wreath

When I was little, my grandma would buy all of us grandkids Peeps for our Easter baskets.

Remember Peeps? Those little sugar-covered marshmallows, shaped like little chicks?

As a kid, I was obsessed with them, and now they make my teeth hurt just looking at them.

Even though you couldn’t pay me to eat them today, I still get a feeling of nostalgia when I see them in the store.

When I was at Michael’s a few weeks ago, I saw little boxes of what looked like fuzzy little peeps, and I knew I had to make an Easter Peeps Wreath out of them.

Here is what you will need:

First, I hot glued fabric all around the wreath. I originally used pink fabric, but then I changed my mind and went with the yellow.

I then hot glued the Peeps to the bottom quarter of my wreath.

Next, I tied a loop around my wreath form with my ribbon, and then I made a bow with my ribbon and connected it with a pipe cleaner to my loop.

I could have stopped there, but I felt it was still looking a little naked. I took my two index cards and coated them with chalkboard paint.

I then cut triangles out of the index cards.

Next, I punched holes in either side of the top of my triangles and ran my twine through them all, and then I hot glued it across my wreath.

I then spelled out EASTER in chalk on my chalkboard banner.

That was it!

Even though my Grams is no longer with us, I will be able to smile and remember her every time I look at this wreath hanging on my front door.

Do you have any ways of remembering lost love ones during the holidays?

    Hi, The Peep wreath is very, very cute. Now where did you find a large quantity of the little fuzzy chicks?? If it was at one of the large chain craft or party stores that would work for me as I live on the Or, Wa border.
    Thanks,
    Debbie

    Grams would have loved your Peeps wreath & every thing else you do on your blog site. I just know she’s nudging her angel buddies & saying ” that’s my granddaughter -isn’t she great!”
