Watercolor Peeps Easter Decorations
We’re kind of obsessed with Peeps around here, so I thought it would be fitting to make some decorations that reflect that. These were so easy and fun to do!
All you need is:
- paper (watercolor paper or cards -I used these)
- watercolor paint
- marker for faces
- hole punch
After making the cards (see my previous post), I made the banner as follows:
Punch the holes in the upper corners of the cards.
Tie a knot at one end of your ribbon (leaving excess ribbon to tie the banner up)
Thread ribbon through one side of the card (I threaded my ribbon to the back because I painted my peeps too close to the top. It would probably be cuter to thread it through the front if you leave yourself enough room).
Thread ribbon through other hole in card and tie a knot.
Tie a knot six inches away (or your desired length depending on how far you want to space them). It’s really hard to tie a knot six inches away. I found it was much easier to get the knot started approximately six inches away, and then measure and adjust the knot as you pull it tight.
Repeat the process until you have as many cards as you want on your banner.
To make centerpieces, write names on extra cards. Attach each card to a wooden craft stick. Insert into wheat grass (I transferred my wheat grass into little pails purchased at the dollar spot at Target).
Super cute and so easy!
