Lollipop Flower Pot Easter Centerpiece/Gift

How to make a sweet surprise with lollipops, a styrofoam ball, and a flowerpot. 

Lollipop Flowerpot, Dum Dums Flower Pot Craft, Easter Centerpiece, Lollipop Easter Gift
I have seen these cute Lollipop Flowerpots (similar but not like mine) on the internet for a while. I had all the intentions of making one sooner, but of course, I procrastinated. I picked up a few boxes of Dum Dums after Valentine’s Day on clearance for 80% off. I knew as soon as I began throwing the boxes into my shopping cart what I wanted to make with them. I didn’t think it would take me over a  month to decide to use the Lollipops. Since Easter is quickly approaching I decided to use the Lollipops to make an Easter  Centerpiece.
Here’s what you need to make your own Lollipop Easter Centerpiece or make one for a gift.
1-Styrofoam ball
Spray paint
Dum Dums  (I used 200)
computer/ printer (I used my HP Envy printer)
1- stiff sheet white felt
hot glue gun
1- chopstick or skewer
Here’s how to make a lollipop Flowerpot Centerpiece.
1. I found free clip art online, then designed a small Easter sign using picmonkey for my fonts. I used my printer to print out my design on stiff glitter felt. Next,  I cut out my design then glued it to a chopstick.
2. Spray paint the flower pot and let dry. When the flower pot is dry glue the styrofoam ball to it. Next, stick the Easter sign into the Styrofoam ball where you want it. Then start sticking the lollipops into the Styrofoam.
3. Continue sticking the lollipops into the Styrofoam until the entire ball is covered.
4. Glue the ribbon onto the pot then tie the ribbon into a bow. Sit back and admire! This cute  lollipop flowerpot would make a lovely hostess gift for Easter, or use as a centerpiece for your Easter table. Also, you can make lollipop flowerpots for birthday gifts, graduation, or any occasion. It’s really a sweet surprise!
What do you think about my Lollipop Flower Pot Centerpiece?
Have fun!

    I made one of these for Christmas and my boys loved it!! Yours is way cuter though! I love the graphic on the glitter felt. Where did you find the felt?

    • KimSeghers

      Thank you Sydney that's very sweet of you! But, I'm sure yours was cute too! I found the felt at Micheal's and Hobby Lobby. The felt has to be stiff, and I trimmed it down to 8×10 before placing it in the printer. Enjoy the rest of your week, Kim

    My kids would freak if I let them make this. We could use it for our big family Easter BBQ centerpiece, and then each kid could take a sucker home. Love it!

    • KimSeghers

    I like this idea to take to the hospital when visiting a friend. So many people can't receive flowers and balloons are no longer allowed either. This would be fun!

    • KimSeghers

      Hi Michele, I agree with you it would make a great gift to bring to someone that's in the hospital. Its super easy to make. And , you could use a flowerpot that's already painted to save on time! Have a great Friday, Kim

  11. lesliesholly

    I'm not crafty at all, but this is so cute I am tempted! Plus the kids would love to eat the lollipops later. 😉

    • KimSeghers

    • KimSeghers
