The Lollipop Ghosts

How to make a lollipop ghost centerpiece

What you need to make ghost lollipops:

  • lollipop
  • white tissue paper
  • black ribbon or thread
  • black marker
  • drag

For the centerpiece:

  • Festive buckets, pitchers or jars to hold your candy cane ghosts
  • a strip of patterned fabric

Step by step guide

Cut a piece of tissue paper in half lengthwise. Fold it in half again, and then in half again until you have a small square.

Fold the folded tissue paper square over the lollipop stick.

Squeeze it around the top of the lollipop to form the shape of a lollipop. This forms the head of your ghost.

Use black ribbon or thread to tie around the base of the head and secure it tightly on the tissue paper.

Use scissors to cut both ends of the ribbon or thread.

Using a black marker, draw two circles for the eyes and one circle for the ghost’s mouth.

Repeat with all remaining lollipop sticks.

Place some tissue paper in the bottom of a bucket, jar, or other container you want to use as a centerpiece for your party table.

Insert the lollipop into the tissue paper in the container. If the lollipop is not standing firmly, you can add more tissue paper to the container to help keep it in place.

Take the patterned fabric strip, weave it in and out of the ghost lollipop sticks in the container, and tuck it in to the side.

This will hide the tissue paper hidden under the bottom of the container and make the centerpiece look nicer.
