Easter Wreath with Peeps! :)

I made this wreath trio last year because I couldn't decide which Peep color I wanted to do. :) This year they have even more colors, I've seen orange and green peeps!

Here's what you need:
  • 1 (or 3) 9" wicker wreaths from Dollar Tree
  • Peeps (1 pack of 12 is enough, and they are .98 at Walmart ($1.53 at Target))
  • Paint is optional as is the ribbon to hang it by
  • Hot glue, and lots of it! :)
I started by painting the wreaths to match the Peeps so the areas where the wreath is visible is not wicker colored.
Then glue on the peeps.  They attach easily.
I wired them all together with floral wire I had on hand.
That's it!  Pretty simple huh?
