What you will need to make the Halloween Lollipops
Depending on which Halloween lollipops you decide to make (you don’t have to make them all – you can pick your favourite one or two only if you like!) will depend on what materials you need. To make all the ones you see in the first picture, you will need the following:
- Coloured crepe paper
- Brown twine and black string
- Pipe Cleaners – black
- Craft glue
- Black pen (and red if you want to colour the mouths red)
- Googly eyes – only if you want
How to make a Halloween Lollipop Spider
All you will need to make an easy Halloween spider lollipop are:
- Black pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
Steps for creating a Halloween Spider Lollipop
Step 1: Wind each of the four pipe cleaners one at a time twice around the stem of the lollipop and bend them up on each side to look like a spider’s legs.
Step 2: Glue on the googly eyes.
That’s it! You are done, and seriously – how effective do these look???
How to make a Halloween Lollipop Ghost
All you will need to make an easy Halloween ghost are:
- Googly eyes
- Black string
- Black pen
Steps for creating a Halloween Ghost Lollipop
Step 1: Grab two or three squares of tissue paper and fold them over the top of the lollipop, securing it with a black piece of string.
Step 2: Glue on the googly eyes and draw a black circle for the mouth.
How to make a Halloween Lollipop Broomstick
All you will need to make an easy Halloween broomstick are:
- Brown tissue paper
- Brown string or twine
Steps for creating a Halloween Broomstick Lollipop
Step 1: Cut a rectangle from the end of your crepe paper, and then, with the scissors, cut small incisions along one edge – so that it looks like many small strips. You mustn’t cut to the end, though!
Step 2: Carefully wrap the end of the crepe paper not cut around and around the lollipop’s stick so that the frayed edges cover the actual lollipop itself. The lollipop is round, making this fan like an actual broomstick!
Step 3: Wind the twine around the stick of the broomstick and tie it with a bow at the bottom.
How to make a Halloween Lollipop Witch
All you will need to make an easy Halloween lollipop which are:
- Green and black crepe paper
- Brown string
- Black pen
- Googly eyes
Steps for creating a Halloween Witch Lollipop
Step 1: Cut a few sheets of square crepe paper and fold them over the top of the lollipop. Fasten in place with a piece of black string.
Step 2: Wind a single black pipe cleaner around a pen until it is a tight spiral shape and then glue each curl to the one before it so that it doesn’t separate when it is off the pen.
Step 3: Cut a small rectangle of black crepe paper and cut the edges (like you did the broomstick) so that one end is made up of minor vertical cuts and the other is not missed. This will be your witch’s hair.
Step 4: Finally, glue the uncut section of the crepe paper around the top of the lollipop and at the base of the curled pipe cleaner witches cap.
Step 5: Glue on your googly eyes and add a smile that is ready to go!
