How to make a sweet surprise with lollipops, a styrofoam ball, and a flowerpot. 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.
After I picked up a few boxes of Dum Dums after Valentine’s Day on clearance for 80% off. Knew as soon as I began throwing the boxes into my shopping cart what I wanted to make with them. 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- flower pot
- 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!
