Can you believe it's almost Easter already? In less than three weeks, Peter Cottontail will be hopping down the bunny trail and kids everywhere (and maybe one adult in particular) will be in a state of diabetic coma from eating too much candy.
I really get into Easter. The candy (especially thePeeps), the egg hunts, the pastel colors, the family traditions, all of it. I really like to decorate for the holidays, but due to our lack of ample storage space, I need to have things that can be used for multiple holidays, like this wreath, for example. I know it's Easter themed now, but I will show you an ingenious way to change it up, according to the holiday/season.
This adorable wreath was made using items you can get at your local Dollar store, these particular items came from Dollar Tree, which is my personal fave, but you can find them almost anywhere and it didn't even require any hot gluing... my fingertips thanked me.
What You Need:
Wrap the garland around the form, tucking in the loose ends as you go. Then, insert the skewer (you can easily break them into the right size, if yours are too long) into the Peeps bunny (from bottom to top, so your stick won't be all sticky when you pull it through) and place them where you want them, fill in the extra spaces with the glittery eggs and add a butterfly or two, because, hey, why not. All that is left to do, is add a hanger to your wreath and you're good. I used embroidery floss, but you can use yarn or string.
There really is no right or wrong way to do this, you could even let the little ones help you design your wreath and the best thing about this project is, it's completely reusable. Each season/holiday, you can find new garland and accoutrements and you can keep each theme separate in a plastic bag, then you can just reuse the same wreath form for each project, since there's no gluing. Less crap to store + a fun wreath that's totally customizable = double score!
If you truly don't have one single iota of craftiness in your entire body or you prefer to eat your Peeps, instead of just looking at them, you could make a few of these cute little Peepsters "terrariums".
All you need is, a glass jar, a little bit of Easter grass, a couple of Peeps in your favorite color (I used the Party Cake flavored Peeps) and a hand-full of Peepsters, which are officially my new favorite Peeps product. I love these amazing, little marshmallow-y creamy bombs of chocolate covered goodness. Definitely a must try for any Peeps lover.
