How to Make Mummy Pops

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.

You’ll need:
– a bag of Halloween Glee Gum Pops (any Glee Gum Pops will do the trick!)
– toilet tissue
– a pen or marker
– scissors
– 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.

How did your mummy pops turn out? Snap a pic and tag it #MadewithGlee so we can see. With your permission, we might even share shots of your creepy creatures with our chums. Don’t be too frightened if they POP out at you later!

Say Boo with DIY Lollipop Ghosts

Here’s a super easy, spook-tacular craft to try at home this week: make your own gum pop ghosts!

Step 5 - 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.

DIY Lollipop Ghosts

Step 1: Gather your tools!
– Scissors
– 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 1 - Gum Pop Ghosts

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!
