PEEPS Bring Joy & Flavor
Spring is full of amazing crafts and projects. I especially love DIY Spring centerpieces as they breath in a fresh and uplifting attidute into our home decor. Every year we brainstorm fun and different Peeps Centerpiece ideas for our home or for an event we are attending.
This year, my kids chose to recycle a few things out of our craft box. By selecting florals with bright colors, glass vase and a few chop sticks out of the home DIY tools, we just grabbed a few boxes of Peeps and M n’ M’s in the store.
Our Dad is exceptionally impartial to PEEPS. With Easter onset, he is always on the lookout for a Peeps treat. That is why we buy him Peeps every Easter season. Guess what’s his favorite? The Chocolate Covered Peeps!
If you love Peeps and make a ton of recipes and craft projects with this cool candy, then check out some of the least-known facts about Peeps. You’ll be even more fascinated by this “old as time” sweet dessert.
Fun Facts to Inspire You for this Easter Centerpiece DIY Project
To give you an idea how much Peeps production has changed in the past decades is how quickly they can print the eyes on each Peeps chick. Before it was all hand-painted, and it’s not hard to figure out what is the max a person can physically draw eyes on a Peeps candy! Now, the machine does about 3,500 eyes per minute!
Without much ado, let’s become part of the Americans who will consume more than 600 Million Peeps Chicks and Bunnies this Easter Season.
How to Make Peeps Bunnies Centerpiece for Easter
Why I particularly love this Easter peeps centerpiece project is that it calls only for a few things that are readily available in my craft closet or in the kitchen. Get a few boxes of bunny peeps, locate a transparent glass vase, and dig out old or new chopsticks. Plus select the silk florals for your one-of-a-kind home decor piece.
Any Flowers Will Do for This Colorful Center Piece
Reuse & Recycle Your Craft Ingredients!
I have a bunch of silk flowers that I use and recycle for every season. Be it Easter or 4th of July, I always have floral bunches in my craft box.
The Filling of the Vase Is Easy-Peasy – A Child Can Do It
I use colorful candy to fill up the vase and create a foundation for the flowers. Easter is so rich in its traditional pastel colors! The stores sell a ton of candy in every Easter color there’s out there. I use M n’ M’s for this DIY Spring centerpiece. Feel free to substitute for any candy. If you have the candy that is in colorful paper – use it for your adorable vase bouquet.
Arrange Your Peeps to Complement Your Home Decor
Add more Peeps to the arrangement. Make your bunny peeps look out from the sides of the floral bouquet. Or you could be creative and attach a few peeps to the walls of the vase. Whatever you do, use your imagination and your home environment to match to this fun peeps centerpiece. There’s no wrong doing in this craft.
