Sugar skulls are the best and you should put them on everything. Especially since Halloween is coming up.
And especially since you’re so much better than handing out boring lollipops in their original packaging. Right?
Make your own Sugar Skull Lollipop Wrappers
- Printer paper
- Yarn or string
- Glitter and/or confetti
Step 1: Cut and Crinkle Paper
Cut squares of paper that will roughly cover the head of the lollipops. There should be enough extra material to reach the stick.
Ball the paper up and smooth it out, several times. This will make the paper more flexible and easier to attach to the stem, and will add a more ghostly appearance to the finished product.
Step 2: Draw and Decorate the Sugar Skulls
First, measure where the skull will fit best over the lollipop.
Draw sugar skulls using a simple skull outline and bright pens. Remember: there can never be too much color.
Use swirls and dots and flowers and hearts and basically any shapes that get you going. There are no rules. But if you happen to want some inspiration, the internet is here for you.
Add glitter or sequins if your sugar skulls need a little extra bling.
Step 3: Add the cover to the lollipops
You guys, this is so simple I almost don’t need to explain it but I will anyways.
Center the skull over the lollipop and pinch the ends of the paper around the stick. Tie it on with a piece of colorful yarn or twine.
Give them out to trick-or-treaters or save them for your own Day of the Dead celebrations.
