I’m bored.... I’m sick...... And I’m spotted......
That’s right…. I have waited some 30+/- years to get the chicken pox. THE CHICKEN POX! The lovely doctor. that examined me said that medically, I had made his week. He had not seen a case of chicken pox in over 10 years. Well, what do you say to that. The oh-so-sweet Southern Belle in me wanted to say “Oh, so very glad to be of help.” The tiny bit of redneck-girl that stays hidden behind that Southern Belle’s debutante gown wanted to hurt the man….and say things that a nice southern girl should not say. I just glared at the man. As my mother says, everything does not deserve a response.
Anyways, I’m getting behind on all my Halloween treats I want to make, because no one wants to consume food made by someone that looks like they have leprosy. So, today I’m going to show you more of a craft than a recipe. I remember these from when I was a kid. I loved them then and I still love them. They are cute and so simple to make. You probably already have the few things needed to make them. Your kids will love helping with these. And all your little trick or treaters will adore them!
So lets get started.
You will need :
Lollipops (I used Dum Dums, but Tootsie Roll suckers work the best)
Markers, Ribbon, wiggly eyes, etc…
I stand my lollipops up in a bit of florists foam. Its not necessary, but it helps. Cover your lollipops with a
Single tissue. Then tie a bit of ribbon around the sucker (where the candy meets the stick).
Then, decorate the ghosts face. You can use a marker and just draw his/her face.
Or you can use cute little googly, wiggly eyes. They’re pretty cute.
And, if you have the chicken pox…by all means, you can use a red marker and make your little ghost have dots just like you.
Really you could decorate these any number of ways. The sky’s the limit. Think of how cute they’d be with a little yarn for hair. Have fun making these. I’m going to go recover and be thinking of all the cute Halloween treats I’m going to blog about next week!
