It’s no secret that me and Emily are big lovers of colours and fun themes & when we had such great feedback from our Dr Seuss inspiration board a few weeks ago we couldn’t resist following on with a DIY that would work perfectly with any colourful and crazy decor!

Giant Lollipops

These giant lollipops are really easy to make and would look amazing dotted around a room! Fun would instantly be added!

Ready to know how? Here we go…

You will need giant lollipops

You will need:

Accrylic white paint
 A paint brush
 Wrapping paper tubes

Step 1

Step 1: Paint the wrapping paper tubes white! You may want to add a couple of coats to make sure that it looks lovely and thick!

Step 2

Step 2: Blow up the balloons! But don’t blow them up too much, remember you want them to look quite round so that they resemble a lollipop.

Step 3

Step 3: Cut a piece of string a little bit longer than the length of your tube and tie it to the end of your balloon

Step 4

Step 4: Tie the other end to something heavy like a stone! It’s only to drop the string down through the tube!

Step 5

Step 5: Drop the string down through the tube.

Step 6

Step 6: Pull the string tight and tape in place inside the tube.

Step 7

Step 7: Cut off the remaining amount of string along with the stone.

Step 8

Step 8: Place the cellophane over top of the balloon and cut a piece long enough to reach below the balloon and onto the tube on both sides. Then cinch it around the balloon and hold in place.

Step 9

Step 9: Tie a ribbon around to hold the cellophane in place!

You’re done! Now grab your next balloon and get making a few more!


Much Bespoke Love
