Here’s a super easy, spook-tacular craft to try at home this week: make your own gum pop ghosts!
These cute little spooks hide a sweet inside– but no scary surprises in the form of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. Best part is, they couldn’t be simpler or more affordable to make!
We’re so eek-cited about our new Glee Gum Pops: delicious natural lollipops with hard candy shells, bubblegum centers, and three fun flavors in every bag. When dressed up for Halloween, the pops are perfect to bring to parties, pack for school lunches, or give away to trick-or-treaters.
Step 1: Gather your tools!
– An old white sheet or other cloth rag or scrap (tissues work, too!)
– Dental floss or white thread
– A felt-tipped marker
– A bag or two of Glee Gum Pops
Step 2: Cut squares of white fabric. We find that five inches by five inches is a good size. Cut as many squares as you’d like ghosts!
Step 3: Cover each pop with the fabric and tie the floss or thread gently around the “neck” area of the ghost. Trim accordingly!
Step 4: Spookify your ghosts! Draw faces directly on the fabric with your marker. Of course, the possibilities to embellish here are endless- you could add googly eyes or use different colors. Extra points if you make one that looks like the Glee Guy!
Step 5: Go scare/ delight someone with your new posse of gum pop ghosts. And if you happen to share on social media, please be sure to tag us– we wanna see all your funny phantoms! (You can find Glee Gum on Facebook and Pinterest and our mascot Glee Guy on Twitter).
Happy almost Halloween, chums!
