Easter is coming and marshmallow peeps are invading stores in droves. Bunnies and chicks in almost every bright color cover the shelves. And clever, interesting Easter peeps ideas are invading Pinterest. Whether or not peeps are your favorite Easter candy, you can’t avoid them.
My kids always want me to buy them, then they eat one and forget about them. Crazy girls! So this year I thought we would use those forgotten peeps in some kind of clever way. Kick your Easter and spring decorations up a notch with these clever and fun Peeps ideas.

Peeps Wreaths – by Mommy Savers and another by Lisa Frost Studio
I wanted to include both of these wreaths. I found one to be more elegant and the other to be more fun but they both made me smile.

Plus they are a great addition to Easter time decor.
