Craft Corner: Easter Peep DIY Banner Video Tutorial

Instead of getting a belly ache from those sweet mushy Easter treats, get your Peep fix by creating this adorable banner.

We all know and love those squishy, sugary little animal confections called "Peeps". But popping a whole bunch of sweets right before swimsuit season is not my idea of a good time. So instead of getting a belly ache, I get my Peep fix by creating something almost just as yummy---this adorable Peep banner.

Easter Peep DIY Banner Materials 

  • Scissors
  • Colored Card Stock
  • Baker's Twine
  • Q-tips
  • Roller glue
  • Sharpie or black pen

Easter Peep DIY Banner Directions 

  1. The first thing you need to do is draw yourself (or download one) a Peep template. WARNING: you will feel compelled to make these bunnies perfect. DON'T stress yourself out. They are simulated marshmallows after all.
  2. Choose your preferred Peep color card stock and cut out the desired amount. 
  3. Then add tiny holes in the tops of the bunny ears. 
  4. For your "front" Peeps, add three dots to make eyes and a nose. 
  5. For your "back" Peeps, add another hole about a half inch from the bottom of the bunny. 
  6. Snip off one end of the Q-tip and insert. No glue needed.

Next you'll make the carrots. Cut a triangle out of orange card stock and round he edges. Cut a square of green card stock and cut one side at odd angles. Round the edges so it fits to the top of the carrot. Secure the greens to the carrot with roller glue. Poke some holes in the top of the greens.
