I can’t believe that Halloween is almost here! Ahhhh! We started decorating a few weeks ago, but just got the finishing touches done today! How about you? Still working on it? Here’s a fun little craft to do to give to your favorite trick or treaters!
We just happened to have a bunch of lollipops that we didn’t know what to do with and decided to dress them up for Halloween! I can’t wait to show you how easy they are!
The materials we used are felt, embroidery thread and needles, scissors, googly eyes and glue and, of course, lollipops! And an erasable or disappearing pen is optional.
First we made the patterns, but you can skip that step and download our patterns here. Our patterns are for a 2″ lollipop. We traced pretty close the pop and then secondly, we made the pattern about a quarter inch larger than the pop.
Secondly, we cut! First the pattern. Then the felt. Cut out the shapes, two of each for each pop. And if you want eye holes, this is the time to cut them out.
Next, the fun part! Well, this is debatable… I think my son’s favorite would be the next step. But the sewing part is mine! If you’re making these with little ones, two things. First, be careful with the needles. The bigger the needles, the easier it is for the little fingers to use without being poked. And secondly, you can mark the spots to put the needle along the edge of the puppet pieces. I used a Frixion pen and the dots can be ironed out.
The favorite part for the kiddos! Adding the googly eyes! Just glue them on!
And lastly, insert the lollipop!
And a spooky lollipop ghost puppet is what you have! My son went a bit overboard with the googly eyes, huh!?!?! He was loving it!
We made a bat, a pumpkin and several ghosts!
I think the bat is my favorite! Which is your favorite? What other fun spooky lollipop puppet can you think of?
