DIY Christmas Candy
Material for Christmas Lollipops
I went to the Home Depot website and searched for clues. I found my answer ~ Caulk! Even though I had a brand new tube of caulk that wasn’t what I anted to use How messy would that be? So, then as I was about to throw in the towel, in total desperation the answer finally came to me. Floral Wire!
Let me tell you this turned into the easiest project ever.
Before we get started, let me tell you one of the best tings about this cute little project.
A bag of this foam in my area costs $3 for 25.
One of those lollipops in that Christmas store sold for almost $30!!
Depending on the size you make, using this foam you can make a lot for a fraction of the cost.
Make Christmas Candy Lollipops
You can make these in less than a minute or two! Start with heavy floral wire, mine I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I found that starting with a slanted edge works best. Now begin rolling the foam very tightly and push the wire through it as you go. Keep rolling until you reach the size you desire for your lollipop. I made different sizes just to give you an idea!
When you reach the desired size, snip the wire, bend and push it back into the foam. This holds it very securely. TIP: If you want to hang it as an ornament, just leave the wire longer to make a loop at the top It’s ready to hang on the tree.
There you have it! I then decorated mine with spray paint and acrylic paint. They both stayed with no peeling problems at all! Now if they only made this foam in pretty colors.
Here are my Lollipops. I wish to use them to make a wreath!
The white lollipop has glittery glue on it and it’s very pretty! I wish the glitter showed up well in the photo. Lastly, I just packed a planter inside my Christmas wreath and I had an instant centerpiece!
It was so much fun with this foam that I am planning on making a Christmas tree with it. Yes, I have plenty of it left. I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Lollipops. Please! stop by my blog sometimes to see what I am doing. Thanks Hani for the privilege of guest posting for you today!
Now isn’t that the cutest decoration for Christmas and the easiest too! Thanks for the lovely idea to make DIY Christmas candy, Kathy! Nothing like old fashioned Christmas decor.
