One of my favorite kinds of Easter candy is the little peeps marshmallows. I think you either love 'em or hate 'em. I'm on the love side!
When I saw these bunny foam cut-out shapes at the Dollar General, I knew I had to pick them up. After all, they looked just like little Peeps. Surely I could find a project to make!
I decided to make Peep bunny bowl fillers.
This project is really easy and the Peeps are SUPER cute!!
Want to learn how to make bunny peeps for Easter bowl fillers? You will need the following supplies.
- Peep Foam Pattern
- Scissors or pinking shears
- Hot glue gun and glue
Select your fabric for your Peep bunnies. You can really use anything you have on hand. It can literally be scraps because you need very little fabric. I had some fabric leftover from a chair I recovered and I also had some other scrap fabric that I used. Choose a variety of fabrics and by all means, use what you have. No need to make a special trip to the fabric store. An old skirt will work just fine.
Double your fabric being sure to have your right sides facing each other. Trace the Peep bunny to the back side of the fabric and cut out the bunny. You should now have 2 bunnies. Turn the fabric to the right side and put the two pieces together.
Grab the glue and the glue gun and begin to glue the bunny on the inside in small sections glueing the bunny together.
Be sure to leave an opening at the bottom of the bunny so that you can stuff your bunny with the poly-fil.
Once you have completely sealed your bunny, grab some ribbon and tie a little bow around the bunnies neck. It's that simple!
These bunnies will look great in a wooden dough bowl or a small basket! They will be so cute for Easter!
