All Peeps Go To Heaven!

 It's time for the 2013 Washington Post Peeps contest!! This year I decided to make a scene with peep angels and call it "All Peeps Go To Heaven!"

Here are the two pictures I submitted and their captions (warning: they love peep puns):

Godpeep with his long white beard (and old man eyebrows) watches over all the angelpeeps in Peep heaven. One angelpeep plays the harp, while others are playing a friendly game of poker. Two purple angelpeeps are peeping over the edge to see their peeps on earth.

St. Peeper checks in the newest angelpeep, as the angelic choir peeps their hymns. Two lovepeeps have finally reunited in Peep heaven!

And now for the close ups!

Here are a few behind the scenes pictures. 

Work in progress...

To make the wings, I used card stock to create the shape and then glued a piece of toothpick to the back. 

Then I put hot glue on the card stock and laid a feather on top.

Here's what the back of the wing looked like after cutting off the feather.

Then I flipped it over and glued another feather to the front.

Here is a finished wing!

For the halos, I used gold pins for jewelry making. 

The pins are bendable, so I wrapped them around a marker to get the right size.

Then I just bent one end for the part that would stick into the peep.

I call this the Green Room. The peeps are waiting to make their debut!

Here is the set for the photo shoot. The blue walls of our kitchen made the perfect backdrop to look like the sky.

I hope you enjoyed all the pictures! I know I am a little crazy, but I always have so much fun with the peeps contest. They are just so darn cute!


  1. Visiting from YHL.

    Well done! The WaPo Peeps contest is one of the things I miss just having moved from NoVA. I look forward to seeing the online photos!

    Best of Luck!

  2. I must be crazy too cause this is freaking adorable! I want to make one for a table centerpiece for Easter. My kids would proably eat them all before then but it's just so cute. <3 it.

    1. Thanks!! They are so fun to make, you should definitely do it. If you think your kids would eat them, try these tuxedo peeps!
