Easter Craft, smoosh, & peeps

I am going to try to make this a SUPER 
QUICK
EASY 
TUTORIAL
on an EASTER CRAFTY CRAFT
I am making with my fourthies
and I tested it out with my 4 year old...
so it is safe to say it is good for ages 
4 and up...
hang on to your panties grannies cause here we go

GATHER your supplies...
 all materials were bought at my local TARGET...
I try to find any excuse to shop there so
here is yours...
and yes that is edible grass
 
 don't forget the PEEPS!!!
oh and ribbon you need ribbon
BUT I forgot to take a pic of that
BUT anywho... you need ribbon
it was found in my craft cabinet
BUT I am sure Target has ribbon too

NEXT...
 squirt some icing into the bottom of the cup
smoosh (like my technical term)
SMOOSH about 1/4 of the grass into the bottom of the cup...
be sure to smoosh around the edges...
put icing on bottom of peep
place peep in cup onto edible grass
get a few eggs
put icing on the bottom of those and place next to peep
we tried to hide the marshmallow scar from the separation of the conjoined peeps

that could be it... it is cute like that... it is...
BUT
I couldn't stop there...
I poked holes into the sides of the cups...
I had to use the tip of my hot glue gun... to burn the holes through...
ADULTS ONLY for this 
 
do you see the holes????

then I pulled ribbon through the holes and WHA LAAA

I used different ribbons
because I am like that and well I was using ribbon scraps and that's what I had...

 soooooo what do you think....
super easy...
even a 4 year old can do it...
NOT THE BURNING A HOLE THROUGH THE CUP PART...
do that before hand...
but it is pretty simple and not too too expensive...
I am pretty sure my kiddos will love it...
I thought about making them write about their favorite PEEP or something but ...
I won't


***********************************
Drew and I didn't stop there...
we decided to make cupcakes too...
these were not for my kiddos
BUT could be...
we decided to deliver them to family and friends instead!!!

so you do the same thing as above....
smooshing the grass in the glass and all...
make sure you smoosh it real good...
BUT don't smoosh it  too much because you want it to still look like grass
We made our cupcakes in a little silicone pot but you could do it like normal...
I got the silicon pots in the Easter section at TARGET... holla


 ok so after you get over how cute the flowerpot PLUS chocolate cupcake looks
squirt icing on the top... don't be neat.... it will be hidden
but if you are OCD go ahead and make it neat...
I know you have too (HEATHER I LOVE YOU)

 then you are going to take your grass nest out and place it on top of your iced cupcake...


BLURRY PIC ALERT...
put a big glob of icing on the back of the peep...
see it is super clear in this blurry pic *wink*

 stick it on your nest
 grab a few eggs... add icing and stick them on...
remember to hide the marshmallow scar...
 done...

 all of our little peeps in nests... waiting to be delivered...
super cute HUH???
Bub and I thought so...
 we delivered to some of our favorite peeps...
my grandparents loved their cupcakes :)

soooooo
there you have it...
I tried to keep it short and sweet...
hope you might be able to use one or both this Easter...

  8. This is an adorable idea! I just made peep pops for my students. When I saw Peeps for your post title I had to check it out! How cute! And I love the idea of using the ribbon. It makes them look like little baskets!

  11. As cute and adorable as the peeps and the cupcakes are (and they ARE adorable), they are not nearly as adorable as the grandparents holding them!
    Thanks for lifting my heart, Farley. You have a wonderful way of doing that...
