Peep Wreath.......

The other Sunday one of my favorite moms from my preschool class  showed me a wreath she made out of Peeps...It was so stinking cute...I knew I had to make one for my Autumn (She just loves Peeps but being a diabetic chooses not to indulge herself...Well at least not most the time)....



Cindy explained to me how she used tooth picks to attach the little bids to a straw wreath...
and, although the straw wreath was kind-of messy...The project was really quick and easy!


Sooo...Being the thinker that I am I deiced to pick up a Styrofoam wreath and skip the mess....Makes sense doesn't it??



Well Here's the thing....You put a bunch of those marshmallow birds together and believe it or not they get kind- of  HEAVY!!

Ya...I mean real heavy!!  I hung my pretty wreath on the wall and proceeded to make a flower for it...when I heard this odd R-I-P.
I honestly thought the dog had farted passed gas (she had been having a little problem with that, as of late) Anyway I even went over to make sure she was OK...after all it was louder than usual....Then I went back to making my Tissue Paper flower when I heard it again...this time followed by a thump...
Of course this time I found my wreath on broken and on the floor.  :( 


I put it back together and deiced to use it as a center piece instead (Not like I really had an option).... 



Well, that's my whole peepin story...And the moral of it is what????
Yes, use a straw wreath...There really is less mess in the long run!!  :)

Yet again, I'm linking up to some way cool parties!
Thanks for stopping by!

  5. That wreath is adorable! What a great use for Peeps - better than eating them, I think! I had to giggle at your story, especially about the dog, erm, farting. It does make a great centerpiece. Nice work! :D

  10. That is so funny - I can't believe the wreath broke (twice)!! At least you salvaged it and it looks cute as a centerpiece.

    I made a peep wreath too and used styrofoam and haven't had any breaking problems! Mine is a bit different - I used yellow bunny Peeps. Here's the link if you'd like to check it out.
