spring flower peeps

hey how was your easter guys?
do you have a bunch of peeps leftover?
yeah, me too.

and seeing that i had so many bunnies here and there (they must've mass produced over night!)and that i like butchering them as i did here
i wanted to use them for a springtime/earth day celebration/mom's day treat.
(yes all 3 celebrations cuz i like to put a lot of needless pressure i put on myself :>P)

so anyway, wanna see what i did with them?
okie dokie.
without further ado, let's take it 
by the usual step-by-step routine.



hey! did we just turn bunny ears into leaves?!

and we turned a bunny body into a flower center and more bunny ears into petals?!
hey wait a sec-is that what i think it is?
i think it needs a little reinforcement 
since it's so wobbly on the straw.
let's try this:
then grab some candy melts or almond bark and,
stick that liner right over the flower so there are no falling petals.
and look, you can make a BIG one too!
spread some candy glue over the bunny faces,slap a liner over it to hold the flower together, wait til the glue dries after a few minutes, and then flip it over.

 the thing when making these is that marshmallow sticks to marshmallow when the white part is exposed but since there are so many petals attached, the flower gets heavy.
no worries though, cuz the liner holds it all together.

you can leave it like so but since i can't leave things well enough alone, i did this:
i also put a heart in the center of the main flower.
so the only thing left is to bag them up if you don't give them as a full bouquet.

give them to someone to celebrate spring now that the snow has all melted! (has it?!)

give them to someone today to celebrate 
EARTH DAY!
and wouldn't they be nice to give all together for mom?

mom's day is coming up sooner than you know!
and they are lots cheaper than a dozen roses but don't say i said that! :>O
hey should we tell that flower it's really a bunny peep?!?

  5. Oh darn! Peeps are GONE - the few I passed out to the kids were eaten by them and what else was there to do for grandma besides eat the remaining ones? But I love your idea because basically Easter, Halloween, and Christmas are the only times you see versions of these, and what about the Peeps who like them all year round? Problem solved for Earth Day and Mother's Day at least!
