Iron Craft Challenge #15- Peeps!

This week, we were challenged to make something using Peeps as part of the Iron Craft Challenge.  This meant using the actual peeps themselves, not just making something peep related.  I didn't really want to have peeps sitting around my house as permanent Easter decor (sorry little guys), so I went the edible route.  In honor of my bird-inspired craft business, here are some peeps dressed up to look like another species.

"Well Mr. Peep, we certainly look sophisticated." "We sure do Mrs. Peep, do you think we pass as goldfinches?"

I used melted chocolate to "paint" on the coloring of another bird species, the American goldfinch.  I used chocolate chips and toothpicks as my materials, but I'm sure you could get more fancy-schmancy with it.  Although the female does not get as bright yellow as the male, I like to think that this is a mating pair.  They are shown here sitting on a cheerios nest.

Moments after this photo was taken, the cheerios nest was consumed.  As of the writing of this blog, the birds were still alive.


  1. Cute! Everyone loves to come up with challenges using Peeps, don't they? I wrote about one a couple of weeks ago on my blog too:)


Thanks for your comments! I love hearing from my readers :)
