I’ve been making Peeps® Wreaths for 6 years now and honestly, this is one has got to be one of my favorites! I usually use the classic chick shape but couldn’t find them in all the colors so I instead switched to bunnies. Aren’t they cute?

Rainbow Bunny Peeps® Wreath
Step One. Ok, peeps, this isn’t rocket science but there are a few hints that will make this project so much easier and enjoyable. First one: Completely remove the wrappers and let the Peeps® dry out for a couple days before making the wreath. They’ll be much easier to work with if they’re not so sticky!
Step Two. Next hint? Use two toothpicks per bunny to secure in place. This will prevent them from spinning on a single point and shifting on the wreath.
Step Three. Continue placing the bunnies in a circle around the front and outer edge of wreath. Once completed, fill in the center ring with vertically placed bunnies.
Step Four. Tie a large bow out of the burlap ribbon and insert a floral pin in the back. Secure in place at the top of the wreath.
And that’s it, your super “sweet” wreath is good to go!
In the past, a few people have mentioned that heat or humidity have caused some of the Peeps® to fall off. If this is a problem, just dab a bit of glue to where the toothpick meets the sugary surface.
Another issue that has been brought up in the past is the ant factor. I would highly suggest a couple coats of clear spray varnish if you know ants are a problem where you live.
