Pumpkin Lollipops

This is one of those things that happens when you read the email from the ballet teacher a couple of hours before the party. At the bottom she kindly mentioned that it would be nice if the kids brought treats to share. What?!?! This called for an emergency trip to the Dollar store where I got a bag of lollipops, a roll of orange streamers and some green ribbon. Fifteen minutes later (and for only $3!) I present you the treat my daughter will be sharing at ballet this afternoon.

It doesn't get easier than this... I'll share the process in case you are in a bind at some point this week and have to make an emergency treat. Cut some ribbon, you'll need three strips per "pumpkin".

Cut some strips of orange streamer, you'll need four per "pumpkin".

Lay the strips of streamer in a "snowflake" fashion and place the lollipop of top. Gather up all the streamers and scrunch (is that a word? I hope so!) them at the top.

Attach three pieces of ribbon around and tie them into a simple knot.

Use your scissors to curl the ribbon (my kids were fascinated by this step!)

I present to you the "Pumpkin Lollipop". Enjoy!!!

Oh my word! These are superior to the kleenex ghost suckers in every single way. (but still super easy) I'm in love with this! Genius!

Agreed with Ellie! I love these! The kleenex ghosts are always easy but half of them end of tearing! These are unique and oh so very cute! Thanks!!

What a fun idea. I did somthing similar in grade school but with white tissues and then took a marker to make eyes so they looked like ghost.
