Peep Party Cup. Every Easter I try to make my wee special peeps something special. With the current economy, I tried finding inspiration at the dollar store.
The Dollar Store Supply List
- Paper party cups and crepe streamers in the party section. $2.00
- The pipe cleaners were in automotive. ??? $1.00
- Shredded crinkle paper in the gift wrap section. $1.00
- I had the lace, ribbon, glue, and vintage paper posies and peeps at home. But I did see new peeps and silk flowers at the store as well.
Using plain white glue that I had purchased for another dollar store project I glued the pipe cleaners onto the paper cup.
I took a small section of crepe paper streamer and gathered it on my sewing machine to create a “cuff” to place around the paper cup. (You could also do this by hand.) I then glued the cuff to the outside of the paper cup.

A perfectly pink treasure for my Fashionista:
I hope you have been inspired to create your own dollar store treasures.
Happy Spring to all my special peeps!
