SO many people love this easy DIY Christmas craft! These are giant paper plate lollipops for Christmas. They are super cute as a garden decoration or you can line your driveway with them.

They do not have to be painted perfectly because the cellophane makes them all look ADORABLE no matter what your skill level is which makes it an easy DIY craft anybody this holiday season. Let’s get started making them!
Paper Plate Lollipops
I originally made these paper plate lollipops for Christmas, but you could use these cute lollipop decorations for just about any occasion! Just switch up the paint colors:) We had so much fun making these giant lollipops from paper plates. Candies that don’t give you cavities? Perfect!
How to Make Paper Plate Lollipops
With just a few supplies kids can create the coolest christmas decor! Put them in your yard or display them in a vase filled with peppermint candies. Whatever your presentation the kids will so much fun making them! So easy! Decorate your garden with them this Christmas or line them up along your driveway. They cost less than a dollar each to make!
If you get paper plates from Costco (like we do), then they’re even cheaper! I used acrylic paint, but use whatever you have or washable paint if kids are doing it. I got the sponge “dot” paint brushes at the craft store. You know what wold be fun? Making them in different colors for candy themed parties!
Merry Christmas and happy DIY decorating!

How can you keep these from being ruined when it rains!
I made the lollipops today. Adorable ,easy,fun.i put them into planters out front. I added Rick’s wrapped in colored cellophane to hide the base.
I’m so excited to make these! I bought everything today to make 6 of them! Thanks for sharing this project!
This is the best website. Love It!!!
I just made these! I used 10 inch paper plates. And after I painted them and let them dry, I sprayed them with clear glitter spray. I also bought the plastic bags at Michaels and use the 40% off coupon it was size small and I got 16 bags and it was a better value than buying bags or cellophane wrap at Dollar Tree. I used 5 & a half inch bows and I got 2 bows for a dollar at Dollar Tree.
I really love these lollypops I am going to make them at Christmas time in all different colors. Thank you!
just to cute
What did u use for the stick because Dowell rods are exspensive
I got them at WalMart in the craft section for less than $1.00:)
And sometimes you can find them at the dollar store! You could probably also use garden stakes.
I have used these lollipops for years now. I made them years ago, using 10 inch styfoam I got at Walmart. Icovered them with different colors of cellophane, and dowl rod. But after years of use the styfoam is destroyed. I am going to try the paper plates they will be much cheaper. thanks for the idea
