Easter will be here before you know it, so I decided to start decorating last week. The weather here is still cold and snowy, so maybe if I start decorating for Spring it will come sooner!
Peeps are popular all year round now, but to me they are most traditional at Easter. I always used to love the Peeps in my Easter basket when I was a kid, and I make sure to put some in my kids’ baskets too. But now that I am older I find them too sweet to eat, so they work better as Easter decorations for me.I decided to use the Peeps in some hurricane candle holders that I had in the dining room for an Easter themed decoration. To make the candle holders even more festive I started by putting a layer of jelly beans in the bottom.
Then I topped the jelly beans off with rows of Peeps.Â I though using one color of Peeps were candle holder would look best, and I used yellow and purple to get some bright and cheerful colors in the house.
The Peeps wanted to fall down, so I ended up using cereal blows inside the hurricane glass to push the Peeps up against the glass.Â They came out cute, and it only took about 10 minutes to make them from start to finish.Â I have been using them on the dining room and kitchen table as centerpieces.
What Easter decorations are you planning this year?

Those look so cute! I wouldn’t dare burn candles in there and ruin the cuteness!
oh my gosh they are too cute!! I’m surprised the PEEPS can hold the weight of the bowls and candles without getting squished
now that is cute!
Such a simple and festive decoration. The kids would love this.
This came out really cute!
Well this is just adorable and easy!
Oh my gosh, that is too cute! I could actually make that, but I have a feeling my daughter–a true lover of Peeps–would ‘borrow’ them!
Can you light the candle and not have the Peeps get all soft and sticky? It sure is cute, but I’d be worried about having melting Peeps on my hands, LOL!
