How cute are these Peeps decorations? For a fun Spring craft, consider making this inexpensive Easter centerpiece with Peeps. It can be compiled in just a few minutes!

A Peeps Centerpiece for Easter

Here’s a clever hack for making colorful Easter decor!

Incorporate Peeps marshmallow candy into a vase centerpiece to display flowers.  The trick is to use two sizes of clear vases or jars and fill the middle with Easter candy and décor. The best part is it just takes a few minutes to put it together.

Lina created this Instagram reel to show you how easy this is to create!

Think you’re not crafty? No worries! This DIY Peeps vase is very doable, promise.

I actually first highlighted this project back in 2016 and pictured above is my first version. I love this clever project so much still today as easy Easter table decor. Peeps decorations are just adorable, aren’t they? Even if you don’t enjoy eating them, they are fun to decorate with!

I think this could be a fun hostess gift to make if you are invited to someone’s home for Easter! Add some tulips or another favorite Spring flower, and this is such a nice gift.

DIY Easter Peeps Centerpiece




Place the smaller vase inside and add a layer of jelly beans in the gap between the vases.


Next, place a layer of Peeps with the eyes facing out. I did not separate them. Use the end of a spoon or a chopstick if you need to push them down gently.


Add a layer of faux grass, followed by a 2nd layer of Peeps.


Add water and fresh flowers inside the smaller vase.

Tips for making a DIY Easter Centerpiece with Peeps:

  • To save money on the clear vases use some you may already have on hand or find them at a thrift store or Dollar Tree! The middle vase can even be an empty water bottle or something you can repurpose. You just need to make sure there are about 2 inches of room in between containers! The 8″ small vase I used here is currently sold out, but there are many similar 8″ vases available!
  • You can use any color combination of Peeps you’d like! Feel free to skip the jelly beans and grass if you’d like. It’s really up to you.
  • If you are worried about Peeps attracting ants, I have not had that in my experience. They dry out.

I love this double-vase method for decorating!

These Peeps decorations will add such a fun whimsical touch to your Easter table. I honestly don’t do very much decorating for Easter anymore, but I do love creating a fun table when I host Easter brunch. If you end up making one of these Peeps centerpieces, let us know how it turns out!
