DIY Spook-Pops!

So yesterday I mentioned that I’d had a DIY idea come to me in a flash the other day, and now I’m here to share it with you! I have no idea where the idea came from.. I don’t celebrate halloween, and haven’t had a lollipop for years – but here we are haha! The mind is a funny thing. Hopefully some of you out there celebrate halloween and will find this DIY fun and useful :)

I thought these pops would be great if you’re having a halloween party, or need a quick gift for someone.. they’re so cute!

DIY Spook-Pops

Here’s what you’ll need:

– Ghost and Skeleton Template in A4 or LETTER
– Lollipops
– Tissue Paper in black and white
– Sticky Tape
– Paint Markers
– Hole Punch
– Scissors

Step 1.
Cut the tissue paper into approx. 10cm (4″) squares. You’ll need a few layers so you can’t see the lollipop wrapper underneath. Round off the corners of each square.

Envelope the lollipop with the tissue circle, and twist the ends around the stick (much like how the original wrapper is done). Use a length of sticky tape to secure it in place. Try not to get too much bulk at the base of the lollipop as that makes it more difficult later on.

Print out the templates on light card (colour is up to you) and cut them out. Use your hold punch to punch the circles indicated on the pattern. TIP: Turn your hole punch upside down and take the back cover off – that way you can see the paper when you feed it in, and can line up where you need to punch.

Step 4.
Thread the lollipop stick through the top hole you’ve just made, followed by the bottom hole. Ease the cardboard into place on the lollipop, tape down the back if you need.

Step 5.
For the Ghosts, use a black pen to draw in some eyes and a mouth.
For the Skeletons – I used a silver marker to draw some bones on the body and some creepy (but cute!) facial features before attaching them to the lollipop stick.

So there you go – simple or what?! I wish we celebrated halloween here – I think they’d be a really fun thing to hand out to trick or treaters! :) What do you think?
