Ghost Lollipops

Clara's pumpkin birthday party may be over but I am not finished with the pumpkin-y crafts yet!  Ava's Kindergarten Halloween party is coming up and I am helping plan it.  

These cute little Ghost Lollipops stuffed in a pumpkin are going to be used for a game of "Pass the Pumpkin".  It's played just like "Hot Potato".  The kids sit in a circle and pass a small pumpkin while Halloween music plays.  When the music stops the person holding the pumpkin is "out".  But don't be sad...the consolation prize is a Ghost Lollipop!  The winner gets a Ghost Lollipop and gets to keep the little pumpkin.

Here's what you need to make your very own:
Foam pumpkin
Pinking shears
White cotton cloth
Orange and black ribbon
Masking Tape
Awl or Power Drill

Here's how I made the Lollipop Ghosts:
1.  Using pinking shears, cut the white cloth into 6.5 x 6.5 inch squares.
2.  Cut the orange and black ribbon into 14 inch strips.
3.  Cover the lollipops in the white cloth and tie a bow using the orange and black ribbon.
4.  Use a black marker or Sharpie to make ghost eyes.

Here's how I made the pumpkin:
1.  Place strips of masking tape equidistant from each other from top to bottom around the pumpkin.
2.  Use a flexible tape measure and a pencil to make dots on the masking tape.
3.  Use an awl or a power drill to punch holes in the pumpkin.  Be sure to punch holes at a downward angle.
4.  Remove masking tape and insert lollipop sticks.
