Party with My Peeps Easter Wreath

What says Easter better than a gooey sugar coated marshmallow shaped chick or bunny?

The infamous Easter peep has been reincarnated into a wreath!

Remember my marshmallow wreath? – well I figured …

peeps are just marshmallows with the added cuteness factor so why not do a Peep wreath?!

Peeps Wreath

* styrofoam wreath (mine is 16″)
* Peeps (I used 140) – go wild with chicks, bunnies, multi-color or single
* toothpicks (same amount as peeps)
* wired ribbon for hanging

1) Stick toothpick in styrofoam wreath
2) Stick Peep onto toothpick
3) Wrap ribbon around wreath and tie into a bow

That’s it – can’t get any easier than that!

And here’s my marshmallow wreath that really started the idea brewing.

  1. Found you through YHL today and I think this is such a cute idea! I’m obsessed with peeps, and this gives me another excuse to buy them in mass quantities this year. :-)

    Do you think you could use a spray lacquer on it to make it last several seasons?

    • I’m sure you could spray it to give it more staying power but the peeps are hard as a rock! I think if I just wrap it in a plastic bag when I store it, it should be ok without the spray.

    • A friend suggested that you culd spray it with a clear sealer to protect it from getting sticky and attracting bugs.

  2. Just popped over from the Young House Love Pinterest Challenge. I have to admit what drew me over was the project name – A Peep Wreath? As in marshmallow Peeps? Brilliant! It looks so cute, but I’m afraid it wouldn’t last very long in my house without little pieces going missing. This is why we never have real candy canes on our Christmas tree :)

  3. Found you from YHL Challenge… and the peep wreath is on my list to do with my little 3-year old. I love it! Too cute, (and funny!) :)

    How did your marshmallow wreath hold up? I am worried about bugs and sticky mess as I live in hot FL.

  5. Loving this! It would take everything in me not to just pull one off and eat it every time I walked by

  6. Super cute – I know my girls would try to eat it! Take care, Laura

  7. I love this! It is the cutest wreath I have ever seen!

  8. Oh Kelly, I love your Peeps wreath! It is so cute & such a fun pop of color. Thanks so much for linking to my party.

    ***I always feel like somebody’s watching me***is by Rockwell with Michael Jackson singing that famous chorus. Can you tell I love the 80s? lol

  9. I forgot to add…following you on Linky now!

  10. Shannon Fox says:

    Ha! That is cute it’s making my teeth hurt. hehe Love it!!

  11. That peep wreath is sick! I love it!

  12. This is so disgustingly cute! How can you not like millions of peeps on a wreath?

  13. Hah, great minds think alike! Your wreath came out absolutely adorable. :)

  14. Kelly, that is ten kinds of awesome!!! I am so doing (or at least pinning) that!

    ~Elena

    P.S. Rockwell! With guest vocals by Michael Jackson. That will be in my heard for the rest of the night ;)

  15. Okay, I’ve been searching around Google for a peeps wreath and here it is all day on your blog!

    And sorry I missed your call. I’m a total dork when it comes to v-mail. Like I don’t pick it up. And didn’t recognize your #. Will call you tomorrow …

    Cuz I was a bit crabby today (= no fun)

    And I’m pinning cuz I’ve been itching to pin a peeps wreath all day …

    :)

    Linda

  16. Love these Kelly! Thanx for coming to the party!

  17. oh but i just love peeps, how can you turn them into a wreath! :) cute cute!!
    Laura

  18. We just bought some peeps yesterday. If I attempted to make a wreath, I am afraid that most of the peeps would end up eaten and not on the wreath! Cute idea!

    Linking from Random Thoughts :D

    xo,

  30. Kelly! Yes….. yes….

    Wreath + Mirror = Heavenly Peeps Springy LOVE

    But tell me… with all the marshmallow + hot glue…. how have your fingers not been eaten alive by death from any “Smores Disaster”?!

    Happy Happy SPRING!

  31. This is a great idea! I want the bonus points!!!! This singer was Rockwell and Michael Jackson sang back-up. Hey, do I get bonus points?

    Maureen

  32. Kelly… now I can’t stop singing that song! Reminds me of the old days! The peeps wreath is adorable!

    Take care,

    Trish

  33. My sisters and I have a longstanding search for new peep ideas. I’ll definitely be passing this link along to them.

  34. PEEPALICIOUS!

    m ^..^

  35. I don’t know how you make it without eating all the Peeps!! Such a temptation! I love it though! Hope you stop by and share it at my Link Party! (ps – will see you at the Mission Possible: Its a Cinch Party!)

  36. Seriously, this is the cutest thing ever. I think I would eat half of it before it was done. Thanks again for sharing.

  37. SO SO CUTE! I found you via the Newbie Party. This is really adorable!!!!! Happy Spring! Beth @ Flair-for-Home :)

  38. Adorable! Can’t figure out which one I love better- the peeps or marshmellows! Both are adorable! Great job!

  39. What a cute idea!! I have never even thought of using the peeps for this purpose but I love it and will have to try this!!

  40. How fun is this?! I LOVE Peeps…so much so, I’m afraid I’d eat them all up! =0)

  41. MariaElena says:

    How beautiful! I love your wreath!

  42. What a cute idea-A much healthier way of celebrating Easter with Peeps too!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha in Oz

  43. Kelly, This Peeps wreath is just so cute! Bummer to find out you aren’t the only brilliant one around to create such a fun wreath. :-) I’ll have to buy some Peeps on sale after Easter and create one. Cheap cheeps….. LOL
    ~ Sue

  44. Cute idea! And I really like that marsmalow weath for wintr time.

  45. What a great idea! My son would love this for a kids party :) Visiting from homestories

  46. Totally sweet, that wreath!1 So cute!

  47. I am featuring your wreath tomorrow. It is so fun and happy!

  48. Hahaha – the peeps are watching you. That is too cute!

  49. Kelly, The wreath is soooo cute! What a wonderful project. Hugs, Sherry

  50. Very very fun! I love both of your wreaths! Pinning these!
    Jo-Anna

  51. This is darling!! Love how it came out~ Thank you for linking up at Feathered Nest Friday!

  52. Michelle says:

    I’ve been looking at all of the wreaths using the Peeps Bunnies and this is by far my favorite. I’m basing mine on your design, but with multi-colored bunnies.

  53. What adorable Easter wreath and what a cute idea. I love the look of our blog too. Happy Spring.

  54. Hahaha this is quite adorable!!!! Found you at Kate’s party and I’m now a follower-stop on by for a visit!

  55. LOVE this!! I’m featuring today :)

  56. Love this BUT the peeps would not last long enough to be made into a wreath. I use the stale ones in cocoa. Sort of playful? Or sadistic?

  57. This is one of the CUTEST things I’ve ever seen! LOVE IT!

  58. Hi Kelly! I pinned your peep wreath yesterday afternoon when I stopped by, and I’ve had 127 repins. (Which is more than anything I personally have ever pinned.) People LOVE your bunny wreath. Well, duh, it is ADORABLE!! Nice goin’!

  59. I am going to snag a ton of peeps after Easter for cheap and make one or 2 of these since I don’t have an Easter wreath… thanks for sharing

  60. Do you think these could stand up to shellack and last outside? Anyway to make them last?

  61. Thanks for featuring my Peeps Wreath!
    Kelly

  62. Surprisingly, the Peeps became hard as a rock so you’d have to eat them pretty quickly or risk cracking a tooth! Thanks for the feature!
    Kelly
