* My 2011 Peep Diorama: "Vincent Van Peep's Starry Night"


So, I couldn't help myself and I made a Peep Diorama 
Guess what? 
I'm a Semifinalist!
Here's a link if you want to see all of the other awesome entries,
my favorites are the Split Peep Soup and The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
This year I was inspired by a great marshmallow master, 


2011 "Vincent Van Peep's Starry Night" 

Some of you may recall my past dioramas...

Here's my little behind the scenes tour for you:

I started by gluing peeps to the inside of a copy paper box lid. 
You'd be surprised how heavy they are!


The art studio smelled awesome while I was working!


Then I let them "cure" and get stale. 
Hit them with a layer of gray spray paint as primer,
then spent FOREVER painting them with acrylic paint. 

  
Added my own little Vincent Van Peep,
check out his bloody bandage (real gauze).

The frame is also made out of peeps, spray painted gold. 
There's still a gold square on our front yard grass!

Think we'll have to toast some hot chocolate with Peeps
or make some Peep S'Mores to celebrate!

Why don't you make one with your kids?
Happy Peep Diorama Making!

Fondly,
pink and green mama
