Instantly elevate your Easter tablescape with this quick and easy step-by-step guide for an adorable DIY Easter Peeps Centerpiece!
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year to decorate for. I love to bring out all of the decorative bunnies and baby chicks for Easter and display beautiful, blossoming flower arrangements for spring. It’s all just so bright and fun, which makes me so happy to see around the house!
This year, I wanted to make a cute arrangement to put on the table to celebrate both spring and Easter, so I created this festive Easter Peeps Centerpiece! Yes, I actually used real Peeps marshmallows from the Easter candy aisle!
I love how the Peeps add a whimsical touch for Easter (I mean, look at those little Peeps’ faces!!) and the flowers give it that sophisticated spring decor look. Plus, you can get creative with the Peeps and create single-color rows like I did or mix them up to create a rainbow of Peeps. In addition, Peeps offers such a wide variety of colors for their candy marshmallows that you can easily find some adorable Peeps to match your spring decor or aesthetic and really make it your own!
This DIY Easter Peeps Centerpiece is so quick and easy to put together and I guarantee it will brighten your spring tablescape, whether you are hosting an Easter or spring celebration or just want to add some cute DIY spring decor to your space.
Read on to learn how to make your own DIY Easter Peeps Centerpiece for your spring table!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Peeps bunny marshmallows (I used the yellow and pink bunnies, with one package of each need for my vase)
- One large vase
- One small vase (that is small enough to nest inside the larger one—have a diameter be approximately 2 inches less than the larger vase)
- Faux or real flowers
Here’s How to Make Your DIY Easter Peeps Centerpiece:
To start your DIY Easter Peeps Centerpiece, grab your larger vase. My large vase was a five-inch cube glass vase. Using one color of the Peeps marshmallows (or you could make it multicolored if you wanted to get extra creative with it!), create a bottom layer of Peeps until the entire bottom of the vase is covered. For my bottom row, I used three Peeps bunny marshmallows on two of the sides of my square vase and two more Peeps bunnies on the other two sides to fill it in (as shown in the photos below).
The number of Peeps marshmallows you need really depends on the size of the vase you are using. I was able to create a bottom row with only one pack of Peeps (and still had two Peeps marshmallows left over), so if you have a larger vase (again, mine was a five-inch cube glass vase), you might need to pick up an extra pack of Peeps for your row.
Next, insert the smaller vase inside the large one, gently pushing the bottom layer of Peeps marshmallows against the larger vase. It’s important to have a vase that is small enough to both be nested inside the larger vase and comfortably fit the Peeps marshmallow layers between the vases.
Once you have the smaller vase tucked inside, start building the second layer of Peeps.
Using the other color of Peeps (or, again, you could even go for a rainbow, multi-colored theme), tuck the marshmallows gently between the two vases, nesting them on top of the first row of Peeps. Again, for my particular vase, two sides contained three Peeps marshmallows each and the other two sides had two each, so I only needed one package of Peeps for the top row.
Overall, I only needed two rows of Peeps marshmallows for my vase, but continue to add rows of Peeps marshmallows until your vase is completely filled in.
After the vase is filled to the top with Peeps marshmallows, add your flower arrangement into the inner, smaller vase. Since I used pink and yellow Peeps bunnies, I chose to use pink and yellow faux flowers so it made the marshmallows really stand out. You can use whatever flowers you’d like! You can even use fresh flowers—just add in some fresh water first before putting your flowers into the vase. Arrange your flowers until the inner vase is no longer visible.
There you have it! You now have the cutest centerpiece for your Easter- or spring-themed tablescape!
