In this tutorial, you will learn how to make a simple lollipop decoration to help get your house into the Christmas spirit. In this Instructable you will learn how to make 1 Lollipop but feel free to make multiple and vary the sizes for a better look.

Supplies

For this project you will need to get the following materials:

  • Duct Tape
  • Pool Noodles
  • PVC Pipes
  • Clear Basket Bags
  • Bow
  • A Cutting Tool
  • An Adhesive
    • Hot Glue Gun (Recommended)
    • Elmer's Glue
    • Duct Tape
    • Super Glue

Step 1: Step 1: Glue 2 Pool Noodles Together

First, we are going to start by making the swirl of the lollipop.

  • The first thing you have to do is glue 2 pool noodles together, this will serve as the swirl of our lollipop.

Step 2: Step 2: Wrap the Pool Noodles With Duct Tape

Next, we are going to add some color to the pool noodles by wrapping them in duct tape.

  • Wrap the pool noodles in a swirl until they look like a Candy Cane.

Step 3: Step 3: Applying Glue and Swirl

Next, apply glue to swirl the pool noodle.

  • Apply glue in a straight line down the pool noodles, I recommend you do this in sections.
  • As you apply the glue start to swirl the noodles together.

Step 4: Step 4: Cut a Small Hole Into the Swirl

Using a cutting utensil cut a small hole into the swirl to insert the PVC.

  • We recommend a Utility Knife, start by marking a spot on the swirl and cut with circular motions to your desired depth.

Step 5: Step 5: Inserting the PVC

Cut PVC to desired length...
  • Apply glue to the hole that you cut, ensuring that you have an even application.
  • Then insert the PVC into the hole ensuring that it is in contact with the glue.

Step 6: Step 6: Bagging

Insert the lollipop into a clear Basket Bag and close it shut with a bow.

  • Ensure that the lollipop is in the center of the bag.
  • Cinch the bag below the swirl and tie a bow around it.

Step 7: Step 7: Congrats You Just Finished!

Now that you have finished making a lollipop feel free to make other's with varying colors to spice up your lawn.

Very nice! Only pool noodles are a bit hard to find around here this time of year. But there are alternatives. They may cost a little more but you can use pipe covers too for this. Maybe even some kind of ribbed tubing normally used for sump pumps and other. Also a good alturnative but a bit most costly.

Yeah, had some troubles finding some as well, checked the local dollar store and they had some left over though :). Hope that helps.
