Exterior Christmas Decor Craft
I really want to do candy outside this year, and so I’ve started making my decorations.
First up are yard lollipops. I did them myself and they were very simple.
Paper lanterns (whatever size, color, and amount that you want)
A wooden dowel for each lollipop you want to make
Iridescent cellophane (it took me two and a half rolls to make the six in the photo below)
Assorted curling ribbon
Glue gun w/glue sticks
Assemble the paper lanterns according to the directions on the package. Then using hot glue, attach the paper lanterns to a wooden dowel. I did that at both the top and the bottom of the metal frame of the paper lantern. Next, wrap each lollipop in iridescent cellophane and tie off with curling ribbon.
I will try to post another photo once I get the lollipops and other yard decorations up along with the lights. :)
Very excited to have one of my projects done.
