{DIY} Savvy Peep Flower Topiary

March 29, 2011


Hey Savvy Peeps!! We are so excited Spring is here!! So many crafty projects coming up! With Easter just weeks away we were inspired by this cute and crafty project we saw in our Woman's Day magazine the other day! We are not fans of Peeps to eat, but they sure do make a cute flower topiary. This idea would be cute decor for a kids Easter party, not to mention it costs next to nothing to make!


Here's What You Need:

2 boxes of Peeps (Dollar Tree)

4 3/4 in. Styrofoam circle (2/$1 Dollar Tree)

Wooden dowel ( Pack of 12/Dollar Tree)

Mini clay pot ( Pack of 3 for $1 at Dollar Tree)

Easter grass or moss (Dollar Tree)

Green paint

Knife

Hot Glue


Begin by cutting out center of Styrofoam circle. The thinner the circle the better!




Once your center circle is cut out, place your Peeps on the circle with hot glue.

****The trick to putting these on is to not break them apart.****

*Place Peeps onto the circle by bending the Peeps slightly and placing them on with the hot glue.

*Allow the Peeps to dry, they can get sticky if you play with them too much!

*While waiting for the glue to dry, paint your dowel green.

*Place Peep Flower into the Styrofoam (use a dab of hot glue to secure).

*Place some more hot glue in the bottom of your clay pot and place other end of dowel into glue.

*Cover with Easter grass.

Here is a little more Peep inspiration for ya......
