How To Make The Peep Chandelier You Never Knew You Needed

Candy-lier? Chandel-easter? Whatever you call it, it's kind of insane and kind of wonderful. Good Morning America challenged us to come up with something crazy made of Peeps, and now you can too.

In order to make one, you'll need:

Macey J. Foronda

- 2 or 3 large embroidery/quilting hoops; we used 20", 14", and 10" hoops.

- Twine

- Thin jewelry wire

- Scissors

- A hot glue gun (preferably cordless, since this project can get real tangly real fast)

- A large yarn needle

- More Peeps than you've ever seen in your life (we used about 100 total and found that the bunnies, rather than the more traditional birds, seemed to stick to the balsa wood better)

Repeat this step three more times.

Make sure each length of twine remains the same length and that they're equally distributed around the hoops, so that they'll be balanced.

Use the remaining 4 pieces of twine to attach the smallest hoop.

You could stop here if all you wanted was a rustic, minimalist work of art to proudly display in your Belgian farmhouse.

Play around with your threading technique; we found that threading them all vertically made them slightly uneven, so in later versions of the project we experimented with threading them diagonally (which felt a little more murderous, for some reason, but what can you do). Secure each end by wrapping the wire around a pom-pom, or whatever accent you'd like to adorn your chandelier with.

Cut two 3'-long pieces of twine, tie each end to one of the preexisting knots on the top layer, run the lightbulb down the middle and voila!

We painted our accent Peeps gold for that certain je ne sais quoi. This project was made to be customized.
