    Default Lollipop Plant

    Lollipop Plant

    This makes a perfect holiday craft and a great keepsake gift. You can
    use any kind of lollipops - Blow Pops, Tootsie Pops, Dum Dums or any
    hard center pops.

    Small terra cotta flower pots - 2-inch diameters or larger are good
    Assorted acrylic paints
    Water base glaze
    Styrofoam - white or green
    Spanish moss

    Decide what you want to paint on your pots. Some examples are:

    Valentine's Day: hearts
    St. Patrick's Day: green clovers
    Mothers Day: flowers
    Fathers Day: fish
    Halloween: candy corn, pumpkins or ghosts
    Thanksgiving: leaves or acorns
    Christmas: trees, snowflakes or snowmen

    Paint the clean, dry pot with acrylic paints. Let dry completely.

    After the pot has dried, apply water base glaze, according to the jar
    instructions. Let the pot dry completely again.

    Place a small piece of Styrofoam in the bottom of the pot. Place the
    lollipops into the Styrofoam, and cover the foam generously with the
    Spanish moss or you can use paper shred, Easter grass or wadded up
    colored plastic wrap.

    For Valentine's Day, choose red heart shaped lollipops. Tie a small
    piece of green curly ribbon around the base of the lollipop and make a
    hard knot, then curl the ends---to represent the leaves.
    CC,

    Yeah, This is my life now!
