Peep Basket Door Hanger

Easter is right around the corner and as sad as I was to take down my 
gorgeous shamrock wreath. I created another colorful one to take it's place.
What Easter is complete without peeps. I personally love the bunnies
 better then the ducks. They are just too cute for words.

To make this peep basket you will need: a couple colors of bunny peeps, 
1 rectangle of green floral styrofoam, colored easter grass, plastic eggs, 
skewers (bamboo sticks), basket and variety of colorful ribbon.

Cut your floral styrofoam in half and place into basket.

Stuff your grass into the basket next. You will notice my grass isn't shiny, 
I have the crinkled paper kind.

Take you peep and poke a skewer into the bottom of it.

Now poke through grass into foam and arrange like you would flowers. 
Make sure you put them in different angles and heights. 
Once you are happy with your arrangement, place (or glue) a couple
 plastic easter eggs around base. Finish off by wrapping ribbon around
 basket and tying off with a fun bow. hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

Price breakdown:
1 package each of pink, yellow & purple peeps Walmart: $3.24
basket (clearance area) Hobby Lobby: $2.99
Plastic Eggs Dollar Tree:  $1.06
Wooden Skewers & Ribbon (already had): $0.00
Total:  $7.29

Happy Easter!!
