Lollipop Bouquet

 I’m calling this sweet tree a Lollipop Bouquet. While scouting for supplies, I found the perfect Valentine Tootsie Roll® Pops at WalMart and rose stems at the dollar store. Whether you make the Lollipop Bouquet for a classroom party or to add a little Valentine’s Day decor to your home, I hope you’ll give it a try.

This is fun for Valentine's Day -- a Lollipop Bouquet.
The Lollipop Bouquet makes a great gift idea, too.
To make a Lollipop Bouquet, you’ll need:
  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 5” ball
  • Terra cotta pot large enough to hold the ball (mine measured 4-1/2” across the top)
  • Paint for the pot (I used Krylon® ColorMaster™ in Tomato and Glitter Blast in Cherry Bomb)
  • Tootsie Roll® Valentine Pops Dum Dum Pops (two boxes or about 50 total)
  • Red roses, five – six bunches, or 40 – 50 blooms
  • Paper doily, 10” dia.
  • Tools needed: Scissors; newspaper; wire knippers
Materials for a Valentine's Day Lollipop Bouquet.
You’ll need two boxes of Tootsie Roll Pops, and I found mine at WalMart. Depending on the number of roses on each stem, you’ll need five – six stems of roses.

To make a Lollipop Bouquet:

1. Cover your work surface with newspaper, and paint your pot. I first painted mine red, and then added a top coat of Krylon Glitter Blast. Let paint dry.
2. Place the ball of STYROFOAM Brand Foam on the pot. Insert a ring of Tootsie Pops around the ball where it meets the pot.
3. Deconstruct your roses. Use wire knippers, if needed, to cut away the stems, and then pull apart the layers of petals. I used three layers of petals for each lollipop rose.

You’ll take apart the roses and cut a small “x” in the center of each layer of petals.
4. Cut a small “x” in the center of each petal layer so the opening is wider and the wrapped lollipop will fit. Starting with the smallest layer, slip the petals onto the lollipop stick. Insert the lollipop rose into the foam ball.

By cutting a small “x” in each layer of petals, the petals will slip over the lollipop wrapper.

Easy and pretty!
5. Cover the ball with roses. If there are gaps, adjust the roses, fluff the petals, and fill in with rose buds.

As you arrange the Lollipop Roses, fluff the petals to fill in the space. If there are any bare spots when you’re finished, use the silk rose buds to fill in the gaps.
6. Remove the ball, center the doily on the pot, and place the ball back in place.
