Paint the Paper Plate Lollipop
Welcome to the first step of the lollipop craft. After finding a suitable place where you could work, get your paper plate and pencil. Let's start crafting! And oh, make sure to be facing the brown side of the paper plate.
Draw the spirals you would normally see on lollipops. Take a close look at the image above and try to imitate the drawing.
And then you should get your paint. Red and white paint is what is needed though if you already have pink then use the pink poster paint.
Because of the lines previously drawn, your paper plate will have eight sections. You will have to paint in an alternating pattern with pink and light blue. For now, mix the red and white paint then paint four sections.
Then combine the blue and white paint to create light blue paint. Then use it to color the remaining sections. Good job! Now it's time to move to the next step.
Put Some Goodies
You'll have to get your paper plate, a tape, and a stick for this part of the paper plate craft.
For this step, you will be surprising whoever receives your lollipop craft. This is actually a gift box, an unconventional one but it is a gift box! Awesome, right?
Attach the stick to the paper plate with tape. Then get five lollipops. Your goodies could be different but make sure that they can fit inside.
Get your painted paper plate. You'll have to seal the sweet surprise inside.
And to do that you'll have to put the painted paper plate on top of the other paper plate. And use tape to bind those two together.
And you should have something like in the image above. Great job! You are close to finishing the art project.
Tie a Ribbon to You Lollipop Craft
Your last goal for this craft is to tie nice ribbon. You'll have to get about a foot length of decorative ribbon and some markers.
Using your markers, make color-filled shapes onto your ribbon. In this example, a white ribbon was drawn with different colored circles.
And lastly, make a lovely knot just below the paper plates. Congratulations on finishing the lollipop craft. Of course, now you'll have to give it to someone you like - good luck! And for more awesome kids craft, just see the articles down below.
