I pinned an Easter wreath from Electically Vintage (LOVE this blog) because I thought it was something I could make fairly easy and quick. Plus, I don't really own Easter decorations and have wanted something to hang on the front door. Sounds easy enough, right?
I accidentally bought the chicks instead of the rabbits (which bummed me out because I like the rabbits better...apparently I need to pay better attention while shopping) and the instructions on the website said insert a toothpick and then push in the Peep. Mine didn't stick once I held the wreath up so I had to take them off and hot glue them back on. A little more time consuming than I planned, but in the end it turned out well.
I had the wreath and ribbon already, so I just had to buy the (70) Peeps which means I spent $7 total for this Easter wreath. According to comments on the original blog post, I don't need to spray it with anything, they'll harden on their own and should last a couple years if I wrap it in plastic when I store it. Which makes me glad I don't like Peeps.
The only downside was I used every single one of them and Ellie was highly disappointed that she couldn't eat a Peep. So it looks like I'm going to have to buy some more. Maybe I'll get the rabbits this time.
