St. Patrick’s Day sort of went unnoticed here on Capitol Romance [sorry about that my fellow Irishmen/women]. So I couldn’t help myself today on DIY Wednesday, with sharing a cute little DIY Easter project that my Mom actually saw on Pinterest and made herself!

Thanks to my awesome Mom for sharing :)

A Cute & Simple DIY Easter Centerpiece


  • Square vase [approximately 5” high]
  • 2 – 1 pound bags of regular sized jellybeans [you could buy mini jellybeans or buy ones in the same color too!]
  • 2 packages of yellow [color can vary] bunny peeps
  • 1 – 6oz plastic cup
  • 6-10 tulips in color of your choice [cut to 6” in length]


I saw this adorable, easy DIY Easter centerpiece on Pinterest and could not resist making it!

I already had the approximately 5″ square vase. (5″ high). I purchased 2 one pound bags of regular sized jelly beans (you could certainly buy mini size or buy all the same color) I also bought two packages of yellow bunny peeps.

I placed the 6oz plastic cup into the middle of the vase and poured the jelly beans all around.  When the jelly beans fill the vase to approximately 3″ high, stop pouring.

Then I placed four bunny peeps across the top of the jelly beans and proceeded to fit more peeps inside the perimeter of the vase. I had to trim some of the peeps lengthwise to fit (you want the peeps to just reach the top of the vase).

I purchased a bunch of tulips from the local food store (color is up to you) and cut them in 6″ length.

I filled the plastic cup with water, placed the tulips in the cup and voila….a cute, springtime centerpiece!

 Let us know if you use this tutorial to make your own DIY Easter Centerpiece! We would love to see it :) Thanks again to my awesomesauce Mom for sharing her project with us!
