Â A few years ago, I had made a peep “pop” centerpiece for an Easter party.Â I was a big hit at the party and SO simple to make that I thought this year I would change it up a bit and make a smaller version for a teacher gift.Â For a peek at the bigger version and a few other cute Easter/Spring ideas, click here.
You will need a basket, foam, cake pop sticks, peeps, some type of filler, and assorted candy (flowers and eggs).Â You might also need a roll of cellophane and toothpicks.
Â Place the foam in the bottom of the basket.
Â Then cover it with the filler.
Â To make the peep pops, push the stick into the back of the peep.Â Rocket science, I know!
Â Push the sticks into the foam, to get them to stand up.Â I had some cute little candy flower that I made stand up with toothpicks.Â In the past I have found suckers that looked like flowers.
Â And a few chocolate eggs…
Â I’m giving mine as a gift, so I wrapped it in cellophane from the dollar store.Â If you are using it as a centerpiece, you can skip this last step.
Â I got everything but the basket at Dollar Tree. There were enough left over supplies to make 4 other baskets… minus the baskets! 😉
