Supplies needed to make a lollipop monster:
- Lollipops (I used tootsie pops)
- Colored tissue paper (I used purple and green but you can use any colors you would like!)
- Googly eyes
- Black Marker
- White pen
Step 1: Cover the lollipop.
Take the tissue paper and place it over the top of the lollipop. Cut a small piece of string and tie it around the lollipop to secure the tissue paper into place. You can either tie a knot and then cut it, or tie it into a bow.
Step 2: Draw a mouth and decorate.
Next, using a black marker, draw on the monsters mouth. I also added some black dots to decorate the monster as well.
Step 3: Add eyes.
Using glue, add on one eye or multiple eyes depending on how you would like your monster to look. If you are making multiple monsters it might be fun to make each look a bit different.
Step 4: Draw the teeth.
Using a white marker. I used this milky pen for mine. Draw teeth over the mouth. This really helps to complete your monsters look! Play around with the size of the teeth, number of teeth etc. Feel free to really get creative here!
