Halloween Lollipops

These Halloween Lollipops are probably the easiest project ever! My mom, who is the self-proclaimed “least craftiest person alive”, used to make these every year, so if she can do it, so can you! Here are all 3 tutorials for each type of lollipop and at the end of this post I’ve included a free printable for some cute gift tags.


Ghost Lollipops: Scissors, Black Marker, Suckers, Toilet Paper, Ribbon or String
Pumpkin Lollipops: Scissors, Orange Paper (tissue paper works best), Suckers, Green ribbon
Frankenstein Lollipops: Scissors, Black Paint, Green Paper (tissue paper works best), Suckers, Ribbon or String


1. Center your lollipop on 2 squares of toilet paper.
2. Wrap toilet paper around the lollipop and pinch at the stick.
3. Secure toilet paper by tying a knot or bow where the candy meets the stick.
4. Draw a face simply by dotting your toilet paper 3 times with a black marker


1. Stick the stick of your lollipop into the middle of your orange paper.
2. Bring up the sides to cover the lollipop.
3. Tie your green ribbon around the top.
4. Snip the ends of the orange paper just above your ribbon

TUTORIAL THREE: Frankenstein

1. Stick the stick of your lollipop into the middle of your green paper.
2. Bring up the sides to cover the lollipop.
3. Tie your string around the top & snip the ends of the paper just above your ribbon.
4. Dip your tip into black paint and let dry completely.

Grab a small handful, tie them in a bunch and add a tag! Here are the tags I made. Feel free to print them off if you’d like and give them to your friends-
