Making an Easter wreath
Since Easter is around the corner, we decided to get a little crafty and made a DIY Easter PEEPS® wreath! It’s so simple to do, and kids can get in on the fun, help out, and make their own Easter wreath craft. Also, if you are dying eggs this year, these ombre easter eggs are a really fun way to change up the way they look! Here is an easy spring wreath that I made, check out the Easter wreath pictures and how to make it below…
DIY Easter PEEPS wreath tutorial
We love when PEEPS season comes around and crafting with them is just as fun as eating them! This Easter, learn how to make our simple Easter wreath with a few materials and easy steps. You will have to stop at the store or buy seasonal Easter bunny PEEPS online. Now, I know that this wreath may not last forever due to perishable marshmallows, but it certainly will look cute hanging in your home this Easter.
Materials you will need:
- A styrofoam circular wreath (this 12″ foam wreath is the best, I use it every time)
- PEEPS® marshmallow bunnies, assorted colors
- 1-1/2 inch or wider ribbon, 2 spools
- Glue gun, glue sticks
How To Make A PEEPS Wreath
This wreath was super easy to make. First, hot glue one end of your ribbon to your styrofoam wreath. Slowly wrap the ribbon around your wreath, all the way around until it covers up the entire thing. Dot glue as you go to be sure that it is completely secure, making sure that you only dot glue onto one side consistently, it will be the backside. Note, I used a 12-inch wreath from Michael’s, which needed two spools of 1-1/2 inch ribbon.
Add a ribbon for the hanger
To make the hanger, measure out the ribbon to the desired length, fold it in half, and cut the appropriate-sized piece off. Pull it through the top of your wreath and match the ends to glue. Also, to secure the hanger, dot glue onto the top of the wreath where the hanger will sit and evenly press into place.
Glue on the PEEPS bunnies
Now it’s time to glue on your PEEPS® bunnies! I started from the bottom of the wreath and glued each bunny on in color order, turning the wreath as I went along. Each bunny should be touching each other for consistency around the wreath to prevent gaps. In all, I used about 28 PEEPS® bunnies, I love how it turned out!
Enjoy this PEEPS bunny wreath!
Thanks to PEEPS® for sending out an assortment of Easter-themed marshmallows for this DIY Easter PEEPS wreath! This was such a fun and easy craft, if you are looking for Easter peep ideas, this is a good one to try. If you want to make a few smaller versions of this Easter wreath with the kids, buy a couple of smaller styrofoam wreaths, some extra supplies, and a bottle of school glue for safety. Have fun!

This is too SWEET and too cute. Love it!
How can you preserve it for use from year to year?
Hmmm not sure. I gave this to a friend as a gift, maybe i’ll ask how well it kept!
So cute!!! Love that it is a project the kids can help do.
Thanks! My kids had fun with this one 😉
Is there anyway of making them so that we could eat it?? I love PEEPS.. this is so cute and I think it would be great to make it smaller and add to like a gift basket.. (just a thought)
What a cute idea!
That’s cute. Is there something you can spray on the marshmallows to make this reusable year after year?
That is so cute – I am totally pinning! We did super cute snacks but i like using them for decor too!
Thanks Kate! It was so easy to make, thanks for pinning 🙂
