These spring peeps are easy to make and can be used as table decorations or table place name holders. Use different colored peeps or decorative baby peeps....as long as they are light weight it will work!
Step 1: Materials
Marshmallow or Decorative Peeps
Copper wire – 18 gauge
Funnel or cylindrical object
Needle nose pliers (optional)
Step 2: Prepare Egg Shells
Crack your eggs so you are left with 2/3 of a shell. (Eat and enjoy the eggs!).
Wash the shells and let dry overnight.
Dye your egg shells and/or decorate as desired. I've added stickers to the egg shells in the finished pictures.
Step 3: Bend the Wire - 1
Cut a 22” (approx.) length of copper wire. Select a cylindrical object that has a circumference similar to your egg size. I used a small kitchen funnel. Bend one end of the wire around the funnel twice around.
Step 4: Bend the Wire - 2
Bend the other end of the wire around the funnel to form the base.
Step 5: Create the Stand
Lift and bend one end up and over the other to create the wire stand. This may take a bit of trial and error to get the balance and angle best suited for your eggs. Curl the ends of the wire with needle nose pliers for decorative effect if desired.
Step 6: Add Peeps!
Put a bit of decorative grass in the base of the egg shell.
Add peep(s) to the egg shell and place assembly in wire stand.
