    Tootsie Pop Pumpkins

    Posted by  ·  October 5, 2010

    These Tootsie Pop Pumpkins make a fun Halloween craft for kids.  We usually make tootsie pop ghosts and spiders, but this year we changed it up with Tootsie Pop Jack-o-lanterns.

    How to make Tootsie Pop Pumpkins

    Orange tissue paper

    Reinforcement circles

    Tootsie Pops

    Floral tape

    Cut a six inch circle from tissue paper. Cut a double thickness. We used a 6 inch cake pan to draw around to make the circle.

    Place a reinforcement circle in the center.  This will keep the tissue paper from tearing. It can be placed on the inside.

    Push Tootsie Pop stick through the reinforcement circle.

    Gather up the two layers of tissue paper and twist tightly. We had to scrunch the wrapper up a bit.

    Using floral tape wrap around the twisted orange part to create a stem.


    …unless your favorite little girl wants to turn them into jack-o-lanterns.
