So to celebrate this momentous occasion, I thought I'd share a fun lollipop DIY tutorial! I used taffy's to create these round bursts of color...and it worked like magic! I actually was just going to go to this little boutique and buy lollipops that looked similar to these, but they were $7 each and I needed to buy 10 of them (since that's how many kids I teach in my church class)--um no thanks! So I figured, "hey I'll just make them!"...and it's a good thing because I saved myself quite a few bucks!
Here is the cast of characters: Laffy Taffy, wax paper, and skewers...pretty simply 'ey?!
Take your taffy(s) and roll them like this:
Next, line up however many colors you'd like...
and twist it so the colors start forming a design (I thought this part was so neat!)
Then, coil it into a circle creating a taffy lollipop!
and Now add that skewer to make them look like the real deal!
Lastly, wrap with ribbon and cellophane (gotta make them look presentable right?! *wink wink)
And here ya have the finished product--
Now you have a grand excuse to give out and/or eat a few homemade lollipops this Friday!
