Make a Peeps-Inspired Frame

A frame adorned with Peeps shapes make a sweet gift for Easter and beyond. These are a lightweight treat to slip inside an Easter greeting card destined for Grandma's house.

I used a cookie cutter from a Peeps play dough kit I found at the dollar store to make the template for the Peeps bunny. The kit came with two different sizes of bunnies (a cookie cutter & a plastic container), and some plastic stamps. The play dough was dried out, just FYI if you wanted to use it for its original purpose! I used frames found in the wedding section - they were 6 for $1.

Project Materials:

  • Peeps play dough kit, $1 (or get template from Chica & Jo)
  • Wedding favor frames, $1 (or cut a frame out of recycled cardboard)
  • Craft foam, on hand or $1
  • Sparkly craft foam (optional), $1
  • Craft glue, on hand

Total: $2 and up

To Make:

To make the bunnies: trace the bunny containers on the craft foam. Cut out. Draw eyes and nose on the bunny with a permanent marker.

Another option for cutting out the Peeps shape is to make an impression in the craft foam with the cookie cutter.

Cut out a rectangle of craft foam the same size as your frame.

To cut out the hole in the frame, I turned the frame over with the foam on top of it, and kind of traced the hole with my fingernail onto the foam. Then I cut out the area I traced.

Glue the foam frame onto the top of the frame. Then glue your bunny on.

Add a photo, and you're done!

Here's another version with two Peeps.
