I knew I wanted to do some fun Easter crafts, and what’s better than something simple?
I’m serious guys, the hardest part was just getting all the Peeps… the actual wreath took less than an hour and was so effortless!
When I got this idea, I was really excited and wanted to make it that same day… but after calling a bunch of stores to make sure they sold all the right colors, I ended up just ordering the Peeps on Amazon.
Sooo, I had to wait a few days to make my pretty wreath.
It was worth it though! The rainbow ombre effect makes a huge difference in the finished product in my opinion, so I’m glad I didn’t settle for only pink, yellow, and blue.
I bought a styrofoam hoop, you can get any size you prefer. I already had a hot glue gun, so with my Peeps secured it was time to DIY.
It was sooo easy you guys, and it doesn’t need to be perfect anyway. I think that’s why it came out so great.
All of the troubleshooting that I ran through in my head beforehand didn’t even come into play. I was amazed!
The marshmallows didn’t even melt with the hot glue. Crisis averted.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
All you have to do is glue two Peeps horizontally around the hoop, and then fill out the sides with the Peeps laying vertically.
As you work your way around the wreath, the Peeps will shift a little bit and you might need one or two extra of each color in order to keep the “stripes” even around the entire hoop.
It’s hard to explain, but as you go you’ll totally understand what I’m referring to!
I also ended up running out of green Peeps in one spot- oops! That’s totally okay.
I opted for blue instead to help blend it so it’s not even noticeable.
Ahhh! I love how it turned out. It’s bright, colorful, and so sweet- literally!
It’s perfect to spread some Spring cheer and get into the Easter spirit. I love the colors and ombre rainbow so much.
If you want you can put a cute pastel bow on it, but I kept mine minimal because that’s more my style.
