Every Halloween at daycare they celebrate with a costume party.  The provider also asked parents to contribute something for the goodie bags, whether it be goodies, trinkets, pencils, stickers, etc.  Things have been hectic lately so On my way into work I stopped into the only store open on my way – a drugstore.  I had been hoping they would have Halloween themed stickers or tattoos or something, but no dice, so I grabbed a bag of Tootsie Pops and ran out the door.  Of course the more I thought about it, the more I decided that I couldn’t just send lollipops!  That’s not my style. 

I brainstormed a little and thought – hey, I use to make little flying ghosts out of tissue and cotton balls when I was a kid… bet I could do that with these too!  Using Lollipops, tissues, washi tape and markers I whipped up some Last Minute Lollipop Ghosts perfect for friends, family and classmates.



Using two sheets of tissue, lay them flat on top of each other.

Stick the lollipop in the middle, wrap the tissue down and around, twisting under the “head”.

Secure with washi tape or ribbon.  I went with washi tape because I didn’t have any thin Halloween colors.  I did rip the washi tape in half to make it a bit thinner.

Draw on eyes and a mouth with a Sharpie and call it a night!

DIY Ghost Lollipops

Quick and easy – can’t get better than that. 

OOOOOOO! I just got ANOTHER idea!  How about Mummy Pops?  I could totally envision wrapping up some lollipops with torn strips of tissue… maybe have some googly eyes peeping out? Maybe next year!
