pinspirations

That’s supposed to be a shout-out to Pinterest, but sort of looks like perspiration.  So this is either a post about pinning or sweat, guess you’ll have to stick around to find out.  (Who’s hoping it’s sweat???)

Okay {dramatic pause}, it’s Pinterest. 

I pinned an Easter wreath from Electically Vintage (LOVE this blog) because I thought it was something I could make fairly easy and quick.  Plus, I don’t really own Easter decorations and have wanted something to hang on the front door.  Sounds easy enough, right?

Wrong-ish.

I accidentally bought the chicks instead of the rabbits (which bummed me out because I like the rabbits better…apparently I need to pay better attention while shopping) and the instructions on the website said insert a toothpick and then push in the Peep.  Mine didn’t stick once I held the wreath up so I had to take them off and hot glue them back on.  A little more time consuming than I planned, but in the end it turned out well.

I had the wreath and ribbon already, so I just had to buy the (70) Peeps which means I spent $7 total for this Easter wreath.  According to comments on the original blog post, I don’t need to spray it with anything, they’ll harden on their own and should last a couple years if I wrap it in plastic when I store it.  Which makes me glad I don’t like Peeps.

The only downside was I used every single one of them and Ellie was highly disappointed that she couldn’t eat a Peep.  So it looks like I’m going to have to buy some more.  Maybe I’ll get the rabbits this time.

    Hi Mary! Found your blog and thought I’d say hi! LOVE the idea of the Peeps wreath! That is so cute! I might have to do that! Yours turned out cute! I think you’re right though the bunnies would be really cute. But hey it made for a cute project still right?
