Peeps Crafts: Easy Clay Easter Magnets

Peeps Crafts - Easy Clay Easter MagnetsEaster can’t really be Easter without Peeps! I know there are some of you that might disagree with me – but I’m a huge fan of this sugary, marshmallow-y candy. I heart Peeps of all shapes, colors, sizes and flavors. As I was browsing the aisles of Michaels recently, I realized I’m not the only one – because now there are Peeps cookie cutters! I had to buy them and make a craft, and that is how these magnets came about. Now I can enjoy Peeps all year round with these fun and easy magnets on my fridge. You can also use the same idea to make gift tags (just punch a hole in the top before you bake). Fun, right? Here’s how I made these cuties.

Gather These Supplies

  • Peeps cookie cutters set
  • Polymer clay – pink, bright yellow, brown
  • Clay roller (a rolling pin will work too)
  • Magnets
  • Craft glue
  • Cookie sheet (for baking clay)
