Lolli-poppies

by Kristina Johnson

Gather

colored construction paper
scissors
hole punch
lollipops
green pipe cleaners

Go

1. Cut flower shapes out of construction paper.
2. Punch a hole in the middle of each paper flower and slide it up the stem of the lollipop.
3. Wrap one pipe cleaner around the stem of the lollipop, starting at the top and stopping in the middle so that part of the pipe cleaner is left over. Fold this into a leaf shape.
4. Wrap the second pipe cleaner around the lollipop stick from the bottom and make a second leaf once you reach the middle.
