Easy Halloween Lollipop Craft
Growing up I always thought these decorated lollipops were the best! Anytime someone in my class would bring these to school, I got super excited. One year, I finally convinced my mom to make these so I could be the “cool kid” that year.
These suckers are probably the easiest project ever. From then on, my mom who is the self-proclaimed “least craftiest person alive”, used to make these every year. So if she can do it, you can too!
We’re showing you how to make all 5 of these simple suckers, so grab your supplies, grab the kids, and let’s get crafting!
How To Make Halloween Lollipops
- Tissue paper (black, green, orange, white, and purple)
- String, ribbon, or twine (we used grey and green bakers twine)
- green bakers twine
- Black and white or silver sharpie markers (we also used red just for fun, but totally optional)
- Tootsie Pop or similar suckers
- Printable Halloween tags (download below)
- Circles template (Click HERE to download) or 3 different sized circular items to trace
- Pencil for tracing circles
Each Halloween character is a little different. We’re going to break down each one of these Halloween lollipops tutorials for you one by one.
Prep – Fold your white tissue paper into large enough sections for your plate to fit. We used the circle that was 8″ across.
Outline – Trace the pattern and cut out your circles.
Tip – Since our tissue paper was pretty see-through, we doubled up and used 2 circles per ghost.
Cover – Fold the tissue paper over the sucker, and secure it with a string.
Decorate – Draw eyes and a mouth with the black sharpie marker.
Prep – Fold your purple tissue paper into large enough sections for your plate to fit. For these Halloween lollipop vampires, we used the circle that was 6″ across.
Outline – Trace and cut out your circles.
Cape – For the vampire capes, we cut approximately 3″ x 3″ black tissue paper squares.
Cover – Fold purple tissue paper over sucker, place black tissue paper on the back, and secure with string.
Decorate – Draw eyes and a mouth with the black sharpie marker. We used the red to color in the fangs, but this is optional.
Halloween Jack-o-Lantern Lollipop
These jack-o-lantern Halloween lollipops require a double layer of tissue paper to make them look like a pumpkin.
Stem Prep – Fold your green tissue paper into large enough sections for your plate to fit. The one we used was 6″ across.
Pumpkin Prep – Fold your orange tissue paper into large enough sections for your plate (or cup) to fit. The one we used was 4″ across.
Outline – Trace and cut out your tissue paper circles.
Layer – Place the green tissue paper on the bottom and the orange circle on top. Next, fold them in half and make a small slit for the sucker stick to go through.
Cover – Fold both tissue paper circles over the sucker and secure with string.
Decorate – Draw the eyes and a mouth with the black sharpie marker to finish your Halloween jack-o-lantern lollipop.
Hair Prep – Fold your black tissue paper into large enough sections for your plate to fit. For the hair of our Frankenstein lollipops, we we used the template that was 6″ across.
Face Prep – To prep to make the faces, fold the green tissue paper into large enough sections for your plate (or cup) to fit. The one we used was 4″ across.
Outline – Trace your templates and then cut out your circles.
Layer – Start by placing the black tissue paper on the bottom and the green circle on top. Next, fold them in half and make a slit for your sucker stick to go through.
Cover – Fold both tissue paper circles over sucker, and secure with string.
Decorate – Draw eyes and a mouth with the black sharpie marker.
Halloween Spider Lollipops
Prep – Fold your black tissue paper into large enough sections for your plate to fit. The one we used for our spiders was 6″ across.
Outline – Trace the template and cut out your circles.
Legs – To make the spider legs, cut 2 pipe cleaners in half for each spider.
Cover & Attach– Fold tissue paper over sucker, and secure with pipe cleaners by twisting 2 together to stick out on one side. Then twist the last 2 to stick out on the other side. Bend each one to make them look like “legs”.
Decorate – Draw eyes and a mouth with the white or silver sharpie marker.

Holy moly… This are SO CUTE!!! My children are doing e-learning this year, and I’ve become super close with my younger son’s teacher. She asked me to make the kids Halloween treat bags, and I’ve been really working to make these extra special, since this year has been such a bummer for them. I made 40 of these lollipops tonight, in all the different types you showed, and they are so flipping adorable! I can’t thank you enough for creating such adorable treats! The kids will love them! Happy Halloween! Stay safe, everyone!
Thanks Laura, you absolutely made my day! I’m so glad you love them as much as I do!
Ack!! I wish I could edit my comment! I meant to say “THEY are so cute…” This is what happens when you’re running on adrenaline trying to get everything done at the last second! Haha. Thank you, again, for the adorable treats!
LOL…don’t worry, I do that all the time.:)
Great craft – my kids and I put these together last night and they look so cute!
Gah! So adorable! 🙂 Just darling and yet so simple to do – thanks bunches for including the download for the tags, too!
I’ve been making the ghost suckers for almost 40 years now! I never thought to make other versions! They are so adorable!! We use blow pop suckers…they’re great for kids with chocolate or dairy concerns that can’t have tootsie pops! Love the other fun characters and will definitely be making those this year as well!
I know, aren’t the others so stink’n cute?!?!?!
Love this idea! 😀 I remember your mom making these when we were kids! I am going to make them for a Halloween party I am going to! Thanks!!..
