PEEPS. Like milk chocolate Easter bunnies, we all bit their heads off and saved the tails for last. Yellow PEEPS Marshmallow chicks have been around for decades. We grew up with them. We ate too many of them, and most likely had tummy aches after eating all that sugar. But hey, that's what goes into an Easter basket, right? And when we got older, we experimented with how to blow up PEEPS in the microwave... or was I the only sick kid here that thought of things like this?
There's more to life than yellow PEEPS. Have you been shopping lately? PEEPS now come in a whole array of fun colors like pink, purple, blue, and orange. They also come in Easter bunny shapes too! That's what caught my eye this year, and after getting a copy of the new Celebrate magazine by Phyllis Hoffman, I thought I'd be a kid again and make my own PEEPS Easter bunny wreath this year.
Seriously though... I'm living on a sailboat. What am I gonna do with an Easter bunny wreath? I quickly thought of one of my granddaugters that absolutley LOVES crafts and sent the magazine to her hoping she would make the wreath and send me the pictures. She and her Mom did better than that. They made an adorable PEEPS Wreath and posted the How-To Make a PEEPS Easter Bunny Wreath tutorial on Erika's Stampin Mama, Living the Creative Life blog so you can see just how they did it.
Now you can make your own PEEPS Easter bunny wreath! Just make sure to buy one extra package of PEEPS so you can have the joy of biting their heads off. Oh, and be a kid again. Save the tails for last! ENJOY!
