INSIDE: How to make a DIY 10 minute Easter Peeps centerpiece using plastic Easter eggs and Peeps marshmallows.

So… I’ve never eaten a Peeps in my life! Incredible, I know. I’ve just never had the desire to try the sugar-coated marshmallow-shaped bunny or bird I see on the shelves every Easter-Spring season.

However that all changed the other day when I tossed a box of Peeps in my shopping cart. I totally caved – all in the name of crafting!


Let’s make the easiest Peeps centerpiece in 10 minutes…

This marshmallow-y goodness of an Easter craft can be done in five sweet steps!

Peeps #1: Wrap a pipe cleaner around a wood skewer. Depending on how shallow your centerpiece is, you may need to use two pipe cleaners to fully cover the skewer.

Peeps #2: Fold a piece of green cardstock in half and cut out a simple leaf shape. You will need at least two sets of leaves per Peeps skewer.

Peeps #3:  Using a hole punch, make a hole through the leaves.

Peeps #5: Skewer your marshmallow Peeps so that it sits nicely in the egg cup.

    These are so cute & festive! You know the best part about using Peeps to decorate? They don’t change. They could sit out for months and not change at all…and they don’t even melt! We tried tostaing them like marshmellows over a fire one year, and they wouldn’t even cook! Ha, I think they have too many preservatives! I like your project so much better than the thought of eatting them:)

    This is such a cute idea! I especially like how you wrapped the bright colored pipe cleaners around the skewers to add color and texture. I never would have thought of that. I love crafts like this one – simple, inexpensive, but turns out looking really festive and charming!
