How to make a Peeps Easter bunny garland

Bring some Easter whimsy to living room or bedroom walls with a garland of felt Peeps. Since Peeps come in bright colors, there's no reason not to indulge and create the most colorful garland you can imagine. Hang a short one over a doorway or across an outside door, and longer ones beneath ceiling molding.
This tutorial uses burlap as a sturdy backing, but you could use a slightly larger piece of felt of a contrasting color. If you want to hang the garland vertically on a door, just run a line of glue down the burlap back instead of across.
