An oldie but a goodie

This is one of my all-time favorite Halloween projects....ghost lollipops.  
Not only are they super easy, they are super cute.  
 They are perfect for a whole class of kids or a handful of co-workers.  
You can make them super fancy or super simple.
This year, I made 2 different types.  Alien/monster and ghost.

here's what I used
 {white napkins, black napkins, monster faces (found in Germ-X ad in magazine - cut with 1" punch) and ribbon.  Not sharpie}

How cute are these?  

If I were making these again...I may switch it up.  
Maybe orange napkin w/green ribbon & draw a pumpkin face.  
Maybe green napkin w/black ribbon & draw a Frankenstein face.  
Maybe black napkin w/yellow ribbon & draw a cat face.  
So many possibilities especially if you can draw more than a smiley face :)

These are such an easy but totally adorable idea! How fun that you punched the monster faces out of an ad - so clever! I thought for sure that they were stickers. I think I'm going to whip some of these up for my daughter who is a lollipop lover!

Such a classic treat! I like how you put a twist on it with the monster faces. Found you @ Skip to My Lou

These are so cute. My bus driver used to give these out as Halloween treats! If I never saw this post I would have forgotten. Thanks for resurfacing this adorable idea! Of course my bus driver wasn't that creative.... the alien/monster ones are a gret take on this! (as are you other ideas!) LOVE IT!

You found those cute monster faces in an ad?! You are too clever! Adorable!

staci @ lizard n ladybug said...

thanks ladies...and yes, I found them in one of my many magazines (a Germ-X ad, I think). The little monster/alien faces were the perfect size to punch out :)

Oh that brings back so many memories, I used to make them every year when my children were young for all the class...........I kinda miss making them :)

Very cute! I bought some big round lollipops to turn into pumpkins for my boys' classes this year.

I just love these! Although, we always used Kleenex. Napkins look much better!
