 Snip about 1 1/2 inches from the Tootsie Pop Stick.  Make a little hole on the top of one of the boxes with a sharp knife and insert the Lollipop.

Use the glue gun to attach small tootsie pop "arms"


And "legs"

Dab glue around the inside rim of the hat and quickly attach it to the lollipop

Tie a piece of riboon (approximately 5 inches) around the top of the lollipop stick


Make cuts into the licorice about a fourth of the way up.  This will be the witch's broom


Here are the "straw" parts of the broom.  Glue the licorice on the witch.

    I knew I should have bought those cute hats at Joann’s when I saw them. I had them in my hand and put them back because I am trying not to stockpile supplies. I should have known better!
    Thanks for sharing such a cute project!

    That is SO cute Malia! Great idea! Got your email this morning. Sorry I’ve been MIA. I got really sick over the weekend with a bad bout with the flu. Still not 100% and takin’ it easy, so while I don’t think I’ll be able to run out and get all the stuff I’d need for this. I’ll def. keep in mind for next year:)

    Unbelievable. You are a godsend. I’m a single dad with 3 children learning how to run a household on the fly. Cooking and cleaning is one thing but coming up with ideas like these to do with the kids is great. Thank you so much I will enjoy following you.
