PEEP SHOW

This post is Rated E for Easter, all audiences are welcome!
I have scoured the earth for a cute Spring Wreath that just SCREAMS Easter, with no luck.  I tell ya, there’s never a shortage of Christmas wreaths but I’m seriously not able to find any, at least any as cute as what I’m about to share!  I am so bad and am not 100% sure where to give credit but I want to say Jaimelyn over at I {heart}nap time blog inspired me for this one with a post of hers I cannot locate (if you find it, let me know and I’ll give credit).  I tried to add my own personal twist.
Feel free to copy or create your own fun Peep Show Wreath!
My supplies include:  Burlap ribbon (for lack of knowing the exact term), a Styrofoam wreath, Peeps, glue gun, straight pins, card stock, vinyl, bakers twine & grass *not all shown here*

I wrapped the wreath around with the burlap ribbon until I couldn’t see the green anymore and hot glued it down to get it nice & secure.  The trick to getting the peeps in line was to literally pull them out and leave them stuck together.  They were also glued down with hot glue.  Not to worry- it does stick and they harden after a while!

Next up after adding the yellow peeps around—I asked some friends on Facebook & Twitter for some thoughts and a suggestion came through for adding grass.  At first I was going to get the crazy grass that you see in baskets but thought it might get messy—so then I found this stuff called Bunny Plastic Grass and pinned it behind each of the birds! 
I was so excited to have a reason to whip out my Silhouette to make a banner and letters to say Happy Easter!! I used my
Pick Your Plum vinyl for the letters & the bakers twine to create the string for the banner.  I also felt a lil more color and friends would complete my creation!! HAPPY EASTER!!

love this my problem would be that the peeps would never have survived to be turned into art

This is super cute! Have the kids tried to eat any of the Peeps yet?

And where did you get your burlap roll? I have been looking for some to do a wreath of my own and didn't know where to look.

I stand by my comment earlier that you're the craftiest person I know! This looks awesome! I love the addition of the grass, and the extra "friends". It's perfect! Now you just gotta hope no one walks by and bites all their heads off. :o)

What a genius wreath! So adorable, great job! Now lets just hope that none of the peeps get eaten :)

Connie Weiss said...

That is seriously cute.....but I'd be walking by and taking a bite of the wreath all the time!

Stacy Uncorked said...

This is awesome! But like the others, I'd probably end up with a half-eaten wreath. ;)

Look at you getting on cute and crafty for Easter! You inspire me! I'm not a fan of peeps so there would be no chance of me eating it which is good news, right?

LOVE IT! I hope you pinned it.

Thanks for linking up my friend! xoxo
