DIY: Peeps Easter Wreath

Monday, March 25, 2013

Here's a super simple project for you that's right on time.  That's right- just in time for Easter and just in time to figure out something to do with those Peeps- besides eat them.  



Items you will need: 

Straw wreath (I used a 14 inch one, but you can use any size)
Ribbon (to wrap the wreath and make a hanger)
Peeps (any color)
Clear spray paint
Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Instructions:

1.  Spray Peeps with clear spray paint on both sides and allow to dry.  This part of the project is best completed outside.  This step is optional, but if you plan to keep the wreath for use again next year, you may wish to take a few minutes and complete this step, as it helps to harden and protect those Peeps.

Here's how we did it.  We took the Peeps out of their packages and then lined them up on a cardboard box.  Hubbie sprayed them down good outside and flipped to get the other side once the first side was dry. 



2.  Wrap your wreath with ribbon, and attach with small dots of hot glue, until the entire wreath is covered.  It should look something like this.



3.  Attach your Peeps to the wreath with hot glue, and allow to dry.  To finish, I added a ribbon to hang it with, but I suppose that step may be optional too. 




See, I told you this was one easy project!  And if I can do it, I know you can too.  Enjoy!
