Looking for a dead-simple, DIY way to scare up some decorative Halloween treats this year? It only takes a couple of Glee Gum Pops, a few household items, and a half hour to create the cutest mummy lollipops this side of a crypt.
– a bag of Halloween Glee Gum Pops (any Glee Gum Pops will do the trick!)
– toilet tissue
– a pen or marker
– white thread (or dental floss, if you’re in a pinch)
– optional: a few wee, willing witches or game ghosts to assist you
Step 1: Roll out about 11 squares of toilet paper and cut them in half lengthwise to form two long strips.
Step 2: Begin by covering the head of the lollipop with tissue, then continue wrapping the sides until all packaging is covered. Kids don’t need to be particularly neat here!
Step 3: Tie a knot around the stick with the ends of the tissue, and trim any extra tissue as necessary.
Step 4: For extra freaky mummy flair, cut a length of white string (or dental floss). Wrap it in circles around the mummy and then tie it off.
Step 5: Add some eyes and a facial expression to the mummy with a pen or marker! If you happen to have googly eyes lying around your house, well, gluing those on could be a super good idea, too.
Step 6: Enjoy! Glee Gum Pops contain no artificial colors, flavors,sweeteners, or preservatives. They’re vegan and allergy-friendly, too. So, you can rest easy knowing that no matter how scary your creations may look, there’s actually nothing scary sneaking around inside ’em.
