Center Peeps
Create a wonderful, colorful centerpiece for your holiday table. Start with a wicker basket with a Styrofoam flower arranger in the base. Arrange a variety of silk flowers in the basket. Take some bamboo skewers and cover them with green floral tape. Position them among the flowers and place a Marshmallow Peeps® Chick (yellow, pink, white, blue or lavender) on each of the skewers. They nestle right in among the colorful spring flowers, creating a unique visual on your holiday table.

Candle Holder
Here’s a different idea for a candle holder that’s bright and festive. Take a 3" Styrofoam flower arranger and cover it with paper twist (any color, found in craft stores). Hot glue Peeps Jelly Beans or Just Born® Jelly Beans around the base and place Spanish Moss on top of the flower arranger. Push a candle taper into the Styrofoam and hot glue a few Marshmallow Peeps® on top of the Spanish Moss. Make several and use tapers of different lengths for an "enlightening" centerpiece.

Jelly Bean Egg
Using a Styrofoam egg form, hot glue multicolored Peeps Jelly Beans, Just Born® Jelly Beans, or Teenee Beanee® Gourmet Jelly Beans around 2/3 of the egg. Nestle the egg in some Spanish Moss, which you have placed in a small, "open" wicker basket. This makes a colorful addition to a coffee table or end table during the holidays.

Edible Necklace
Children of all ages can have a great time stringing their own edible necklaces. All you need are strawberry or black shoestring licorice, Marshmallow Bunnies, cereal with holes, cocktail pretzels, or any other stringable food. Using a skewer or other sharp instrument (an adult should help here), poke holes throughout the sides of the ears of the Bunnies. From here, children can string together many different designs with the stringable food. The necklaces can be tied behind the neck, for a truly sweet fashion statement (if they last long enough).
