Washcloth Lollipops

Today, I have a sweet treat for you! I’m going to share a tutorial with you on how to make these cute washcloth lollipops. They are fun for table decorations at a baby shower or decorating the outside of a gift box. You can also make a bunch and place them neatly in a horizontal box for the mommy-to-be!

What you’ll need (makes 1 lollipop):

  • 1 solid color washcloth (I bought mine at Marshall’s, look for coordinating sets)
  • 1 striped, white, or patterned washcloth
  • 1 lollipop stick (You can find these at Walmart or Michael’s in the baking section)
  • white or pink tulle fabric (at least 6 in wide, 8 in is best; you can find these at Michael’s or a fabric store)
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • tape
  • sewing pin

Directions:

  1. Fold each washcloth length-wise so that the strip is about 3/4 inch.
  2. Place the solid color washcloth under the other washcloth.
  3. Roll the washcloths together.
  4. Pin the end temporarily.
  5. Tape the lollipop stick to the back center.
  6. Measure out the tulle and cut.
  7. Measure out the ribbon to the desired length and cut.
  8. Remove the pin and while holding the washcloths, wrap with the tulle.
  9. Tie the tulle to the stick using the ribbon.

You could also make a round pop or just a wrapped candy (without a stick) and tie both ends. Try a piece of cellophane or felt instead of tulle. I encourage you to take a visit to your local candy shop for more inspiration and see what YOU can come up with.
