Nothing says Easter and spring more than Peeps but they can be one of the more controversial aspects of Easter. People either love them or hate them. Personally, I’m on the fence. I don’t mind them but they aren’t my favorite. Then again, I’m not a huge candy fan, to begin with (unless you are a bite-size Snickers, then it’s game on).

One way to incorporate Peeps into your Easter without eating them is to make this adorable Peeps centerpiece. It’s a great project to do with your kids and literally takes 10 minutes to pull together.

Peeps Centerpiece Supply List
Here’s what you need:
4 packages of Peeps. You can do all the colors or just one.
1 large vase.
1 small, tall, bud vase.
Flowers. I used some fake flowers this time but I have done this with live tulips and daffidols.
Layer your Peeps so that they circle the bottom of the vase, leaving room for your smaller vase to fit inside. It’s helpful to keep the finished side of the Peeps facing out so that you get more of the color.
Continue to build up your layers, alternating colors if you want, until you get to the top of the vase.
Finish off with flowers. I used a fake bloom that I had but you could fill the inner vase with water and use live flowers. Any spring bloom will work! Careful when filling the inner vase with water because the Peeps will melt if they get wet.
This Peeps Centerpiece is so easy to pull together, we did another one for our kid’s Easter table. I found these flowers at Target in the Dollar Spot.
