Step By Step

  1. Directions To Dye The Lace Ribbon and Pom Poms: Prep your surface. Lay plastic table cover on the surface you will working over. Put on your rubber or latex gloves

  2. Mix 2 tablespoons Rit liquid dye petal pink with 1 1/2 cups hot water in a plastic, or metal bowl and stir. Let steep for 20 minutes. For good hot water, heat some in the microwave in a glass bowl for 2 minutes.

  3. Place lace ribbon and light color pom pom in the liquid dye solution, let set for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove the dyed ribbon when desired color is achieved and place onto a foil pan. Let dry. Reserve your remaining mixture for more dying by pouring into a glass jar or container, keep sealed

  4. Directions To make Peeps Wands: Push a paper straw into the bottom end of a pink bunny peep, secure in place with hot glue or glue of choice. Attach a pom pom to the back of the peep, tilting to the left side, secure with hot glue.

  5. Cut a piece of the dyed lace ribbon about 12 inches and tie around the bottom of the peep ( at the top of the wand). Then push in a pearl stick pin into the top center of the peep.

  6. Tips/Tricks: -fill in any white areas of the peep with a decaupage medium mixed with petal pink Rit dye and add pinkish sand to finish. -Try adding sugary pink clear or German glitter on the peep. -Add a crepe paper skirt and other fun details to your peep wand.
