Any crafts out there inspired by everyone's favorite marshmallow Easter candy?

WOW I hope so.  I know a geologist who desperately needs a little knitted peep on her desk right now.  Can anyone point out a peep or peep-like knitting pattern?

Hi, tamedvixen!   Grin

Don't know about Peep crafts, but you can put them in the microwave and have battle of the giant Peeps (well, at least until one combusts).

Not sure how they do it but it's pretty nifty:

(Go to the candy section and click on the bunnies, the peeps are there.)

It says she dips them in some kind of transparent resin with glitter in it... I just looked it up and Dick Blick sells polyester casting resin. I  wonder if she's just dumping the glitter in a similar product, then dipping the food in.

http://www.dickblick.com/zz335/20/
Here's info about the resin from the product page:
"Pour Polyester Casting Resin into any mold to make a paperweight, or sculpture. Casting resin is a crystal clear, low viscosity liquid that requires mixing with a catalyst to become rock hard (purchase catalyst separately). It cures to a smooth glossy transparency at room temperature."

Last year I made some purses / easter baskets from the peeps boxes & duct tape. You can see the old post here

They were a big hit as gifts for my teenage cousins and attract lots of attention when I use mine as a purse  Grin

I'm having probs too. I think maybe it should be 2 halves not 1 piece. I don't have any scrap yarn I want to use right now so I haven't tried it.

I haven't done any crafting with peeps, but I'm pretty sure they can stand up to just about any kind of crafty torture out there.  I had one of the bunny peeps stuck to my dashboard in high school for over a year and it held up just fine.

 I've always wanted peeps earrings.  I wonder what would happen if you spray painted them?

I saw on Food Network (I forget the name of the show but it's the one with the guy who used to host Double Dare) where a woman made jewelry with peeps.  She'd slice off the front of them in a thin layer and glue it to a metal back, then shelack (I have no idea how that's spelled) it.  They wouldn't last forever but apparently they'd last a while.

So one would assume that this is something any normal person could do with a decent amount of patience.  The backs she had were specially made but she was selling these things for like $40 each or something.  It's been a long time since I've seen it so I could be off but I know I thought they were sorta pricey for something that didn't last.

In the end she stopped using real peeps and just started painting them.

I didn't craft with them, really...I just ate them & fed them to coworkers.

I covered the little buggers in chocolate... and peanut butter & chocolate.  Caution though, they are *very* rich:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29111.msg245306#msg245306

I've never made any peeps crafts but I did make a peeps pie!



Literally - the pie filling is melted down peeps, chocolate, and whipped cream.

OK, I tried this pattern with help from an actual, published crochet pattern designer and I can officially confirm that this pattern DOES NOT WORK.

oooh, onnawufei, I used to love that show! It's called "Unwrapped" - I thought the guy who did the huge sculptures with peeps was way out there, but it was cool to see what people do with peeps! If only I'd known about Craftster back then!

maybe off topic, but my physics teacher used to put them inside a vacuum chamber.  When he'd turn it on, they'd expand like crazy, and when he turned the machine off, they'd shrivel up like little peep raisins.

but the best was when we'd dip them in liquid nitrogen.  they shatter like glass.  Grin
