I made two bouquets of lollipops for my birthday. Forty doesn’t really suck, but I can’t resist a good pun, let alone a bad one. I made one for my birthday party and one to bring in to work to share.
There is more than 40 lollipops in there as well, but it looked rather thin with only 40. It’s probably closer to 60 or so. I found the red tin bucket at iParty and a styrofoam ball at AC Moore. I used a kabob skewer through the center to hold the sign which I designed and printed mirror images of and glued together to the end of the skewer so the sign is double sided. I have included the sign graphic below if you’d like to make your own. If you click on it you should get the full sized image which you can download and print on 8.5″ x 11″ card stock or other heavy paper.
It was a little top heavy and getting it to work safely was a little tricky. I might weigh the bottom of the bucket down with something the next time I make this.
