Sweet puffs of marshmallow delight can be good for more than just giving your kids a sugar rush with the right inspiration for Easter crafts! From bunny banners to marshmallow chick topiaries, you won't be able to resist these five marshmallow Peeps crafts.

Peeps bunny bunting

Fabric or scrap paper bunting is adorable, but stringing up marshmallow Peeps give your window or mantle extra sparkle and fun — and an Easter craft with no sewing required!

Materials:

  • 1-2 boxes of Peeps marshmallow bunnies
  • Sewing needle
  • Thread
  • Beads
  • Wall hooks

Directions:

  1. Thread your needle and measure the length that you want your bunting to be and cut.
  2. Tie a bead to the end of your thread to keep the marshmallow Peep from falling off.
  3. Carefully push your needle and thread through a bunny about where the ears meet the head, but thread slowly because the string can surgically separate your bunny's ears if you're reckless.
  4. Next, thread beads to separate marshmallow bunnies, adding as many beads as you need to fill in your bunting, and continue alternating bunnies and beads until you reach your desired length.
  5. Using one final bead, tie off your thread and hang your marshmallow Peeps bunny bunting with tacks or removable wall hooks for tons of compliments!

  • Hot glue

Directions:
