Step 1: Gather Your Materials.
a container to serve as your vase. I used this cute tin pail as it was being made for a small child.
coordinating tissue paper
foam craft ball. make sure the ball fits securely inside your container without glue or tape.
20-30 lollipops. the number of lollipops will depend on their size. I use small dum dum pops and ended up needing about 25.
Step 3: Create Base.
use second and third square to create "petals". put squares in an criss-cross pattern on top of pail. there should a v on the top or bottom, depending on how you positioned paper.
use last tissue paper square to cover foam ball.
put covered foam ball in pail so that it sits securely, and is even with top of pail. if you chose to use a larger ball, then it may need to be stabilized with an adhesive so that it won't move after you add lollipops.
Step 4: Add Lollipops
make sure that wrappers are secure around lollipops.
insert sticks into foam and push down until desired depth is reached.
continue until from is completely covered or desired fulness is reached.
Step 5: Enjoy
enjoy giving this cute gift to family and friends, or using as a table decoration at a birthday party.
