Peeps Easter Centerpiece – Isn't This Darling??
Several years ago, after not doing anything crafty the last few weeks (months?), I noticed this idea for an Easter centerpiece that a friend shared on Facebook and thought to myself, “I can surely do that!”
I never knew that Peeps were for anything but eating when I was younger, but it turns out you can do quite a bit of Easter and Spring decorating with Peeps. It doesn't take many items to turn a few simple candies into a gorgeous centerpiece – and most everything you can grab at the Dollar Tree!
Supplies for an Easter Peeps Centerpiece:
- Glass Jar
- Candies (I used malt balls)
- Can of soup (or any can to place in the center)
- Fresh Flowers (if you want to do that!)
So, after I made a quick run to the Dollar Tree for some Peeps and a few malt balls, it only took me about five minutes of work and a little fluffing, and my project was done. (Love it when that happens!)
I used this Anchor Hocking Jar that I ordered at Christmas, then snuck a can of soup from my pantry in as well as a some Easter eggs to take up a little extra space, then added the malt balls and Peeps. Success!
One of the best parts about this project is you can customize it. The flowers look absolutely stunning, but if you don't have fresh flowers, you can still do this with just the candies. SO cute and the kids will love helping out with this one!
If you're creating your Peeps Easter Decorations with fresh flowers, you will need to have a smaller jar and a larger jar, and maybe some putty or floral putty to help keep everything in place.
Put your smaller jar inside of the larger jar and then layer your candies and Peeps as you'd like in the space between the two jars. You could definitely use jellybeans instead of malt balls if you'd like! Any flower will do nicely, but Tulips or Daffodils are amazing this time of year and add in so much color too.
