Iron Craft #6 - Peeps Mantle Decor

This Iron Craft challenge was fun - create something with marshmallow Peeps, or use them for inspiration. I stuck with something simple, since I'm still recovering from my gallbladder surgery. My mantle needed some brightening up, so I used the neon colors of the Peeps to add springtime brightness and fun.

The glass containers were ones I already had lying around. I used candy-coated chocolate eggs in the bottom, topped with Peeps, and then some flowers from the craft section at Wal-Mart. Easy peasy!

I finished the mantle by spelling Happy Easter with my letter blocks, hanging a Peeps banner I made a year or two ago, and displaying a picture of Christ at the tomb (a reminder of why we celebrate Easter).
