How to Make Cindy’s Easy Spring “Peeps” Centerpiece
If you don’t have a square glass vase yet, please do get at least one! They are inexpensive, and one of my go-to staples for seasonal centerpieces! And for Spring, it is ideal to use as the foundation for a cute and easy decoration you can make quickly with some Easter candy, Spanish Moss, a smaller vase ( to go inside the square vase) and the spring flowers of your choice, daffodils , tulips you name it.
1- Square Glass Vase
2- Smaller vase to hold water and flowers inside ( note make sure it is shorter than your square vase so it is hidden)
3- 1 bag of Spanish Moss ( this adds more height to fill the square vase and creates a “nest” look that is cute)
4- Easter Jelly Beans – 4 bags
5- Peeps marshmallow candies – 4 packages ( I mixed up classic yellow with purple for fun)4-
6- Daffodils, or tulips, or, your choice!
1-Make sure your smaller vase will stand and stay inside your larger square vase. Test for height and balance. Then move to the side.
2- Fill your square vase with Spanish Moss – about 1 third full. ( Note you can also go all Jelly Beans, but in this case you’ll need 6 – 8 bags easily to fill it up so it hides your smaller vase inside)
3-Position your smaller vase- now with water and flowers inside- so it stands on the square vase but looks like it’s nestled on the moss.
4- Sprinkle your jelly beans on top of the moss. This should almost reach to the top of the smaller vase.
5- Take your Peeps out of the container, keeping them connected and position them face out , on top of the jelly beans, just beneath the top ridge of the glass square vase. For my vase I used 4 across in yellow on two sides, and then 3 across in purple on the other two sides.
Enjoy and Happy Spring!
