Pumpkin Lollipop Bouquet

I’ve got a fun Halloween craft for you today.  I wasn’t actually going to post my Pumpkin Lollipop Bouquet on the blog because I wasn’t that crazy about how the project turned out but Connor and my hubby really liked the way it turned out.

Pumpkin Lollipop Bouquet

I originally made this to put on my desk at school for my students.  Then, Connor begged me to make one for his teacher and my neighbor asked me to make one for her so she could take it for her students at school.  After making three of them I decided to take a few pictures and share it.

It’s easy to make and pretty inexpensive.  You can keep adding more lollipops so it can be used over and over again.

Materials needed:

  • plastic pumpkin bucket
  • Styrofoam ball (1 Styrofoam ball will make 2)
  • lollipops (about 3 bags)
  • glue gun and glue sticks

All you need is a plastic pumpkin bucket, foam ball, and lollipops.  The most expensive part are the lollipops because you need at least 3 bags for each one.  One foam ball is good for two bouquets.

Step 1:  Cut foam ball in half.  I used a bread knife.

Step 2:  Glue foam ball to top of plastic bucket using your handy dandy glue gun.

Step 3:  Start adding the lollipops.  I started at the top and just went around and around until I filled in the entire Styrofoam ball.

Lollipop Pumpkin Bouquet

That’s it!  3 steps and only 4 supplies needed.

A cute Pumpkin Lollipop Bouquet to display at home or on your desk at work.  I’m pretty sure everyone will want to stop by your desk if you have this on it; which could be a good thing or a bad thing:)

 Last Friday night I had a craft night at my house. We drank wine and worked on Halloween crafts.  Best way to end a busy work week.

Saturday, we met my family at Kings Dominion.  Kings Dominion is exactly half way for us so it worked out great.  We had so much fun and the weather was perfect.  Connor rode his first roller coaster that goes upside down thanks to his big cousin Aidan.

We carved pumpkins Wednesday night.  My husband is insisting that he needs a NY Giants pumpkin so we will be carving more this weekend.

I keep finding these sweet little notes all around the house.  Yesterday I came home from work and found these on my dresser.  Connor sure knows how to win me over:)

And, I’ve saved the best for last.

Before Beyoncé and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed “street but sweet” Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. The film follows the beautiful and talented performer’s inspirational journey, from her debut on “Star Search” at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard’s tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry’s most successful artists in history.  The two-hour movie event is executive produced by Howard Braunstein, Debra Martin Chase and Wendy Williams, and based on the bestseller “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman” by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher John Farley (Game World).
