Lollipops, Lollipops, Halloween Lollipops

Give out these fun Halloween lollipops as party favors or even to trick-or-treaters.

If your child is having a class Halloween party, make up a batch of these guys to bring in. They're kind of irresistable and don't take too long to make.

A couple of simple steps turn these pops into "scary" creatures. Okay, not that scary ... maybe even cute.

Make display of your Halloween lollipops - poke the stems into a block of styrofoam or an empty cardboard box covered in festive paper (or black/orange).


Ghosts

Stuff you'll need ...

  • Bag of lollipops (the lollipop is fully hidden so any flavor is fine)
  • Black marker or black fabric paint
  • White tissue or fabric
  • Thin ribbon or elastics (black and orange, and even purple lately, are standard Halloween colors but white will blend in)
  • Scissors

What to do ...

  1. Cut white fabric or about five sheets of tissue into a square.
  2. Surround lollipop and wrap an elastic or tie a ribbon bow around the tissue at the top of the lollipop stem. (Use white to blend in or choose a color, like purple or black, for a different look.)
  3. Cut the bottom of the fabric or tissue unevenly to look ghostly.
  4. Glue on googly eyes or draw on a face with a black marker.

Jack-o-Lanterns

Stuff you'll need ...

  • Bag of lollipops (any flavor is fine, but the wrapper shows at the bottom so we used orange)
  • Black marker or black fabric paint
  • Googly eyes (optional)
  • Orange fabric, felt, or fun foam
  • Green tape (I didn't have florist's tape so I used painter's tape)
  • Glue (a hot-glue gun works great, but please handle with care if children are helping you; try a low-temperature glue gun being aware that they can still give nasty burns)
  • Scissors

What to do ...

  1. Cut orange fun foam or felt into two pumpkin shapes large enough to cover the lollipop and be able to glue the edges together. You can fold the fabric in half so the bottoms of the pumpkins are still attached after cutting.
  2. Snip a very small hole in the center of the fabric.
  3. Insert lollipop stick into the hole and glue the pumpkin edges together.
  4. Wrap green tape around the stem of the pumpkin.
  5. Trim any excess orange fabric if necessary.
  6. Use black fabric paint to make a fun face.

Spiders

Disney's Spoonful site has a really cute spider lollipop craft. Okay, honestly, I found it kind of creepy once it was made. But, if you don't mind spiders, I guess it's pretty cool.

Make a bunch in different colors for fun. All you need is the lollipop, four pipe cleaners, googly eyes and glue. Check it out! 


All of these Halloween lollipops are pretty simple to make. They turn out really cute (and kinda spooky) too! Enjoy!
