I love to decorate for my parties, but with everything that’s involved with party planning I don’t have time to do it all. That’s why I love quick party decor projects! These sweet, simple lollipop ideas for a party take minutes to make, while still allowing you to add a handmade, custom touch to your event.
- Round Lollipops
- Darice Pink Curling Ribbon
- Metallic Iridescent Balloon Weights
- Darice 9 inch White Tulle Netting
- Darice 6 inch Bright Pink Tulle Netting
- Double Gypso Baby’s Breath Spray
Step 1. Cut 4 squares of pink tulle that are approximately 6 inches by 5 inches in size. Layer the tulle and wrap them around the round orb lollipops. Tie tightly at the base of the lollipop using pink curling ribbon. Trim the excess tulle off the base of the lollipops to create an even edge. These cute lollipop ideas can double as table decor and party favors!
Step 3. Cut the white tulle so it is 4 times as long as the balloon is high. For example, I inflated my balloons to about 6 inches in diameter, so I cut my tulle in strips that were 24 inches long. Cut 6 pieces of tulle, and arrange them in a shape like a plus sign. Pull the tulle tightly over the balloon, and tie the end with the curling ribbon. Adjust the tulle as needed.
Step 5. Insert a plastic balloon stick inside the tied bunch of tulle.
To arrange the centerpiece, I placed the metallic iridescent balloon weight on top of a 4-inch circle of styrofoam. I pressed the ends of the balloons sticks into the styrofoam, like you would when arranging flowers. I covered the styrofoam base by arranging multiple pieces of the Double Gypso spray over and around the foam.
These lollipop ideas are quick and easy to make but create such a pretty effect! I love the way the tulle makes the balloons and lollipops look so much more elegant and sweet. Have fun crafting and creating your own party decor!
