Since my daughter’s candy party (back in March) I’ve had lots of questions about the giant lollipops I made as decorations for the front walkway. The idea is not my own, I found many similar lollipops on several different sites as I was gathering ideas for my daughter’s party. This was one of the many crafts …
To make these lollipops, buy 2 or 3 ft wooden dowels from a hardware store and then use hot glue to attach two paper plates to the stick to form a 3D lollipop shape. Paint and apply glitter and then finish with sheets of plastic (or plastic wrap) tied with ribbons.

To make the jumbo lollipops you will need some colorful balloons, wrapping paper tubes, paint, and some clear cellophane. Simply paint the paper tubes in white, and then assemble the balloon on top, and wrap it up with the cellophane, and lastly, tie it up. The finished product is truly surreal. To add even more goodies to the party you can make individual candies by taking two colored plastic dinner plates and taping them together, and then wrapping them in the cellophane.
I originally made these paper plate lollipops for my Candyland party, but you could use these cute lollipop decorations for just about any occasion! All you need is a few paper plates, paint, and ribbon to make this paper plate lollipop.
