Peeps + Jelly Beans= A Cute DIY Centerpiece!

March 10, 2012

I saw a cute centerpiece on Pinterest and, it inspired me to create my own.  This is so EASY and, festive for this wonderful season!

Here is what you need:

1 glass vase

1 small flower vase, to fit inside the larger vase

2 bags jelly beans

1 bunch flowers, of your choice

1 package “Peeps” candy, your choice of shape/color

Gather your Peeps candy
Place the jelly beans in the bottom of the large vase.  Add water in the smaller vase and place in the middle of the large vase.Cut apart the Peeps candy with scissors, this way, they do not tear.Line the Peeps candy around the inside of the vase, setting them on top of the candy.Cut the stems of the flowers pretty short.  Insert into the small water filled vase.  Wah Lah!  All done!!!
This is so festive and colorful! My sweet model….Miss BrookeMy model again….sweet hands….Once the flowers are wilted, just replace with fresh ones.  You can keep this centerpiece going until after Easter.  Make 3 or 5 of these and, line them up down the center of your Easter table…..awesome!!!  Use your imagination and, pick your favorite color of flowers.

    Thanks for this adorable idea! I made 5 for our extended family Easter dinner and gave them away as door prizes 😉 i used a small sq vase (3 peeps wide) and the florist at Safeway gave me 5 little plastic bud vials that I put a tulip and carnation stem in, so they weren’t as large as yours, but a huge hit nonetheless!
