Halloween is all about costumes, tricks, but most of all, treats. Halloween is not Halloween without some candy. Decorating your Halloween treats is a lot of fun to do and makes the candy even more exciting. Lollipop ghosts make great treats at children’s parties, or even adult parties. They are also great for trick-or-treaters because they are so easy and quick to make.
-Kleenex (you will need one Kleenex for every lollipop)
-black or white yarn
1. If you do not want the yarn to be visible on the ghost, choose white yarn, but if you want people to notice the yarn, and make it look like the ghost is wearing a sort of bow tie, pick black yarn, or any other color is fine. Cut a small piece of the yarn, one piece for each ghost you plan on making. Keep them together and set them aside.
- Grab a Kleenex and put it on top of the lollipop, make sure that you leave the wrapper of the lollipop on because if not, the Kleenex will probably stick to the lollipop and it will not be able to be eaten, which defeats the purpose of the treat. Put the center of the Kleenex at the top of the lollipop. Try to make it so that all of the sides of the Kleenex fall evenly on all the sides of the lollipop.
- Get the pieces of yarn, and tie them right below the actual lollipop. Tie them as tight as you want, just make sure that they do not fall off the lollipop because the Kleenex will also fall off, leaving just the lollipop.
- Next take the marker, and draw on the face of the ghosts. You can do this before you put the Kleenex on the lollipop and tie it but this is a bit trickier. If you draw the face on before putting the yarn on, you will have to make sure that you put the face in the right place. Put the Kleenex on the lollipop and center it just as you would if you were drawing the face on later, but instead of tying it, pay attention to where the face will be and then take it off and put the face on the ghost.
*If you want you can also use cardboard to cut out eyes and a mouth for your ghost and then glue it on. Sometimes this works better because tissues are so thin and delicate that markers can often rip them, but either way works just fine.
These are great for children with class parties, or they can even serve as decoration that can be eaten after it is no longer needed. They are very simply treats and very quick to make, so you can make enough for all the trick-or-treaters at your door.
