Halloween DIY: Spooky Ghost, Vampire, and Eyeball Lollipops

Mon, Oct 19, 2020

Halloween may be different this year, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave the spooky festivities behind! This Halloween DIY craft featuring ghosts, vampires, and eyeballs made from lollipops and common household materials will help keep the holiday spirit alive. Plus it’s super easy for young children and toddlers to join in on the fun! You can even use them as creepy toys to haunt your play carpet.


What you will need:

  • Lollipops (the quantity depends on how many "characters" you will be making. Each requires 1 lollipop)
  • Tissues or tissue paper
  • Ribbon, yarn, rubber band, etc. (anything that can be used to tie or fasten the tissue or tissue paper to the lollipop stick)
  • Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers

How to make a DIY ghost lollipop:

Traffic Green

 

  1. Take 1 tissue or tissue paper and fold it in half so that you cannot see through to the lollipop underneath. Place it over the top of your lollipop so that it is completely covered.
  2. Cut a small piece of ribbon and tie it around in a bow where the stick and the lollipop meet. Fluff up the bottom of the tissue or tissue paper until it lays to your liking.
  3. Take your markers (we used a thin tip black sharpie, but any marker will do) and give your ghost a face. If you have any fun craft materials such as googly eyes or stickers, you can use those too!

  2. Cut a small piece of ribbon and tie it around in a bow where the stick and the lollipop meet.
  3. Cut off the excess tissue or tissue paper at the bottom.
  4. To make your cape, cut your black construction paper into a triangle shape with a rounded base. You can make it however large or small you’d like. If you want to get fancy, you can also cut a smaller red triangle to layer inside of your black one.
  5. Once you’re happy with the way your cape looks, position it so that your rounded base is now at the top and glue it onto the back of your lollipop.
  6. Finally, use your markers to give your vampire a face. Don’t forget his fangs!

  2. Cut a small piece of ribbon and tie it around in a bow where the stick and the lollipop meet.
  3. Cut off the excess tissue or tissue paper at the bottom.
  4. Take your markers and draw an eyeball on your tissue or tissue paper. The creepier the better!
