Strawberries and Sweet Love, 23 Days 'Til Christmas!!!

Hi, I'm Michelle from Stawberries and Sweet Love, I'm so excited to be joining in the fun here at Type A!
 Here's my Lollipop Tutorial, Enjoy!
DIY Christmas Sweets

I made these cute little sweets with my little helpers last year. I just pulled them out to put them up again, and I've gotta say they held up pretty good to show one more year. Welcome to my tutorial on my ornamental Christmas Lollipops! First of all I hit Joann's for my materials. There I purchased a foam sheet (2x12x36IN), 3 dowels (1/2IN), crystal glitter, American Classics paint (red and white), CraftBond spray adhesive and tacky glue.
The first thing I did was find the biggest plate I had and traced out 3 circles on the foam board. I used a kitchen knife to cut them out after tracing.

Once I had them all cut out I begin drawing my desired patterns on them. I wanted them to resemble real lollipops which started with the peppermint then I got creative and drew polka dots and stripes.

After letting the paint dry, I sprayed glue adhesive onto the lollipops and with the help of my little one, he sprinkled the glitter on top and on the sides

Then I let them sit for a night to dry. When they were dried I made a hole in the foam and filled the hole up with tacky glue, then placed the dowel in to dry. Once the glue had set and the dowel was pretty sturdy I wrapped them with transparent gift wrap. I picked red, because I love love love red! And there you have it!
