Here’s a project to keep you from eating all your Halloween candy– pre-Halloween! Actually this approach backfired for me.
1. Small Hats: These are from Joann’s, $1.58 for a pack of 6
2. Small Matching Pairs of Tootsie Rolls
4. Tootsie Pops
5. Halloween-ish Ribbon
6. Raisin, Hot Tamales or Dot Boxes
Not picture: A Glue Gun and Steak Knife or something sharp to make a small holes
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”
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.
Confession: A great of candy was consumed in the making of this tutorial.
