Easter peeps centerpiece

If you have 5 minutes and $5, you can make this centerpiece.


I wanted to do something special for my mom. She's always doing so much for everyone else. I grabbed peeps in every color, a basket I had sitting around, some styrofoam, kabob sticks, and Easter grass. Within just a few minutes I had made this super adorable Easter centerpiece.  

My mom and I both think that Peeps taste better when they've been exposed to air for a day or two or more! Right?! I think 'fresh' Peeps are seriously gross.

 
All you have to do is kabob the peeps and stick them into the styrofoam base. 



Fill it in with the bag of Easter grass. 


I added a quick little "hanging with my Peeps" tag. 


That's it! Well, except, I highly recommend putting a jellybean at the base of the marshmallow to keep them from slipping down. Within a few hours of making this cuteness, it was kind of a mess with peeps turning every way and slipping down into the grass. They definitely need a stopper. 

It's such a bright and cheery decoration. I just love it - and  so did my mom!
