How to Make a Peeps Wreath
Last year I made this fun Easter wreath from plastic Easter eggs. I was looking for something different and easy to make for this Easter and discovered Peeps wreaths!
You might wonder what a Peeps wreath is...it is a wreath covered with Peeps! This wreath seriously only takes about 10 minutes to make. It will cost about $10 to make, unless you already have the wreath form on hand.
For this project you will need:
- Styrofoam wreath
- 3 pks Easter Peeps (bunnies or chicks)
- 2 spools wide ribbon (3 yd each)
- Hot glue gun
While your hot glue gun is heating up, unroll one of the spools of wide ribbon. You can find lots of spring colors of ribbon at your local Dollar Store.
Wind the ribbon around the wreath until you run out of ribbon. Don't wind it too closely together or you will run out of ribbon very quickly. You want the edges to just overlap. When you run out of ribbon, use a dot of hot glue to hold the ribbon in place. Starting where you left off, add ribbon from the other spool until the wreath is covered.
Use the remaining ribbon to tie around the top of the wreath to hang it.
You will need approximately 2 1/2 large packages of Peeps to finish the wreath. Place some hot glue on the back of a marshmallow bunny and place it on the front of the wreath. Continue gluing bunnies all around the wreath until the wreath is covered.
Instead of bunnies you can also use the marshmallow chicks instead. Seriously, this wreath is so cute. You will get lots of compliments on it. I doubt you can store it until the next year, but it would be very easy to cut the ribbon off of the wreath and make it again next year.
