Lollipop Ghosts – a Boo-tiful Halloween Treat

Lollipop GhostsIf you are looking for a fun and easy favor for Halloween Parties look no further.  These cute little ghosties are sure to be a hit!  They are simple, affordable, and easy to personalize.  Here’s what to do….

Supplies – 

Round Lollipops (like Dum Dums)

White Tissue Paper

Black Curling Ribbon

Black Sharpie Marker (fine point)

*Printable Address Labels (optional

First you will want to cut your tissue paper into squares;  cut an approximately 6″x6″ piece.  Also go ahead and cut the curling ribbon into 6″ pieces (1 per lollipop).

cut tissue paperNext place the lollipop in the center of the square and gently gather the tissue around the head of the lollipop.  Tie the curling ribbon tightly in a double knot at the base of the candy.

wrap lollipops with tissueOnce the ribbon is tied,  use scissors to curl the ribbon ends slightly. Next, using the sharpie marker, dot on 2 eyes and a mouth.  I kept mine very simple by making all the facial features circles.

Happy Halloween”.   Then simply wrap the label around the stem of the lollipop.
