Following up on our Halloween craze, here’s a little DIY project that will perk any Trick or Treater up – lolly ghosts! All you’ll need are some lollies, black/white fabric, black/white paint (opposite of your choice of fabric color), and some ribbon.
1. Draft a pattern piece of a circle for your lolly. If you’re using Chupa Chups like we did, we calculated an 8cm diameter and circumference. Fold the paper into half, and just draw a quarter of a circle. Open up fold when done.
2. Once you have your half a circle, fold your fabric into half and pin the pattern onto it. This will ensure you achieve a full circle when opened.
3. Wrap the fabric onto the lolly, and tie a ribbon around it. We found it easier to do so if you tied a rubber band loosely around the lolly first, then remove it when the ribbon is attached.
4. Use a contrasting paint to randomly paint the faces of your ghosts onto the tied lollies. Don’t worry about making them perfect; the more uneven your strokes, the cuter the faces. Let the lollies dry, and you’re done!
You could use these as treats, or add tags onto them for that quirky edible invite to a Halloween gathering. Best of all, this is a project fun for kids of all ages! Enjoy enjoy!
