Lollipop, Lollipop, Oh Lolli-Lollipop! These lollipops have been super-sized, and can hold a whole slew of treats and favors inside them. (Be sure to check out the Oh Happy Day Party Shop for the best selection of party favors!) Side note: while these are fairly study, I don’t think they would last long in the hands of small children. At least not any small children I know. You’ve been forewarned!
Materials needed: 6” Favor Ball Containers, wrapping paper tubes, pink and/or red spray paint, tape, white paper, hot glue gun, cellophane, ribbon.
Step 1: In a well-ventilated area, spray paint the clear half of the ball containers to match the bottom, or if you want a different color, spray both sides. (For the red lollipop, I only sprayed the clear half. For the pink lollipop, I sprayed an entire orange favor ball). Let dry.
Step 2: Cut a 15” piece of wrapping paper cardboard tube.
Step 3: Cut several 3” strips of white paper and tape them around the tube to cover it completely. Trim the top and bottom.
Step 4: Using hot glue, attach the tube to the bottom of one half of a ball. Let glue set.
Step 5: Fill and close the lollipop. Cut a 24” piece of cellophane.
Step 6: Gather the cellophane around the lollipop, and tie it with a ribbon to secure. Trim off the edges of the cellophane if there is too much excess.
