Something fun to do

This has been a busy week for me. I had some orders for the Grinch pillow. I had forgotten how much I liked him. My show is this coming weekend In Moutrie, Georgia. I get to see my good friend Celena, we are staying at the motel together for some girl time. My mom gets to stay with Carmen.
But I wanted to share this easy and fun project with you.

  These are quick and easy to do. They look great poked in flower pots and even in the yard.  I used styrofoam discs that were 6"-8"-10" in diameter.  I bought cellophane paper in red and greens, since that seems to be the colors that are in this year. Bright and cheery. 

Cut your dowels to the desired length.  You can paint the dowels before if you like. I painted mine with black paint.
Poke hole in styrofoam, then hot glue the dowel in place. Make sure your hole goes straight up into the disc.

 Take your paper and fold over the lollipop, making it even on both sides.  Your lollipop will be sandwiched in between the paper.
 Take your edges and bring down around the dowel.  Arranging the folds as you like. Tie a piece of jute or fabric around the paper and pull tight and tie in a bow.
