This blog post should reaffirm all doubt that YES in fact crafts can be quick, easy, and painless! :) As you can see March is nearly over, I think I am cutting close by 3 days..oops! But my friend Jamie keeps pushing me to make this resolution last longer than my last--so I have got to make it to at least July!
You will not be surprised that this craft was inspired by a pin from Pinterest! And I do not exaggerate when I say it is really easy! So let's get started on this simple Easter-ish center piece!
My first stop was to my favorite store--Hobby Lobby. There I bought a rectangle vase--I really wanted a square one, but I had to settle for the rectangle! I also needed some fake flowers and this is what took the majority of my time in the store. I could not decide on what to get. I finally decided on some gerber daisies. I bought a bundle of them to make sure I would have plenty to make my vase look full. And lastly, I bought a small rectangle shaped styrofoam green thing (not sure what the proper term is here) to hold my flowers in place. Next I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some Peeps (I chose yellow bunnies) and some jelly beans (I chose multi-colored)!
|Here are all of the supplies you will need! I spent about $12 dollars on everything!|
|Use the adhesive to secure the green styrofoam to the bottom of your vase!|
Now you are ready to place your Peeps in their new home. I was able to put four of them on the front and back, making the total of eight Peeps...and one on each side, making the total of two Peeps. In all I used ten Peeps!
As if the Peeps and the jellies are not cute enough it was time to position the flowers on the top! I ended up using all of the flowers in my bundle as I thought it really filled it well!
|I did have to see hedge trimmers to cut them apart--which unlike the big knife was a little bit scary!|
And...there you have it... a very cute, Easter themed center piece for your table! :)
And hey...you end up with some Peeps and jellies to spare...which make a yummy snack!
That's....just what jess is up to! :)
