PEEPS and Tulips can be used to make colorful spring decor for your Easter table. I had a hard time finding a tutorial about how to make a Peeps and Tulips Easter centerpiece, so I decided to write my own. I hope that it helps you create a fun Easter decoration for your home. It’s really simple. All you need to make this craft are:
- Potted tulips (real or fake tulips work)
- One gallon clear glass jar (or jar that is wide enough to hold the tulips container inside with a little side room to spare for the PEEPS)
- Jelly Beans (a couple of bags)
- PEEPS Bunny Shaped Marshmallows (about 3 packs)
Are you ready to make your Easter centerpiece? Step one is to empty your jelly beans into the jar. You may have to adjust the amount up or down depending on the sizes of your container. Basically, you want to have enough jelly beans in the jar so that when your tulip container goes inside it, the top of the tulip container will be flush with or a little below the top of your larger container. (I hope that long explanation is not too confusing – please ask me questions in the comments if you have any.) Tip: If you are short on jelly beans, use a small plastic container in the middle to take up some space (it will not show once you are finished)
The next thing you are going to do is line your larger container with a row of Peeps. My container was tall enough to fit 2 rows of Peeps on top of my layer of jelly beans.
You may need some extra helping hands to hold the Peeps into place for the last step…which is to slowly place your tulip container into the larger container. Be careful not to snag any Peeps on the way down. Wasn’t that easy? I’m sure your Tulips and Peeps Easter centerpiece will look so cute on your table.
IMPORTANT TIP: If you are using real tulips, make sure that there is not a drainage hole in the flower pot, otherwise when you water the tulips, the water will make a huge mess in the PEEPS and jelly beans.
