DIY PEEP WREATH

DAY ONE AS A COFFEE DRINKING, TOILET CLEANING (NOT AT THE SAME TIME.. WELL, OK MAYBE) MOMMY BLOGGER...

I bought a box of PEEPS for a craft idea I found online and then can't seem to locate the bookmark and cannot recall where I saw it!? :( But... fear not! I WILL craft these purple PEEPS!!

I will apologize in advance for my photography and photo quality. A nice Canon EOS 60D is on my wishlist this year and I am currently in the process of a free photography training class offered by HP!

First, you need these items:


Scissors
Ribbon
Package(s) of PEEPS any color (might need more packages depending on the size of your circle)
Glue gun & glue sticks
A cut out circle, square, ring, wreath... I used an old rubber ring off of a bowl that I kept around because I knew I would need it for something!

Next, cut apart each PEEP and then layout how many you will need. Use about 3 more than you think you need. I should have added 2 more...



Start anywhere and start-a-gluin' (be sure to add a dab in between each PEEP but try not to hit them with your metal tip or they melt.)


After you have squeezed in the last PEEP, turn it over and glue on your ribbon. I just used items I literally had around the house (this raffia ribbon was under Madi's bunkbed! LOL)


I didn't take a photo but I sat a bowl/plate on while it dried a little then I tied the ribbon in a bow but will probably add more raffia and a larger bow.




And there you have it! A fun PEEP wreath that will make the kids giggle and squirm with delight!

This project is part of an Easter landscape I'm setting up at home so stay tuned! 

Tootles,
TJ
