11 DIY Projects to Make With Peeps for Easter

Easter means the candy aisle gets fully stocked with all of our favorite seasonal treats (Yay!). While we do have love for that chocolate Easter bunny and Cadbury egg, right now we’re all about about them Peeps. Because they’ve definitely got all the right junk (sugar) in all the right places. So the question is: What’s to be done with those adorable chicks and bunnies in marshmallow form? They’re basically begging for you to get creative, so let’s do just that. We’ve been throwin’ lots of springtime DIY projects your way, and now we’re ready to tackle these cute li’l edible guys too. Check out these 11 Peeps projects and visit the B+C shop for all the other Easter supplies you need + gifts for Easter baskets.
