Easter 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)
- Craft glue
- Cookie sheet (for baking clay)
Buy polymer clay in traditional Peeps colors – bright pink, bright yellow, etc. I also bought some brown clay for the eyes. Warm up the clay in your hands by rolling it around, then use a clay roller or a regular rolling pin to roll out a thin layer of clay on your surface.
Before you throw these bad boys in the oven, give them eyes and give the bunny a nose. I just rolled little bits of clay in my fingers. When it’s time to bake, follow the instructions on the clay package.
