Thing’s You’ll Need
- Craft glue
- Paper (white or colored)
- Empty cereal box, paper bag, etc.
- Paper platePopsicle sticks
- Markers, crayons, pens, or pencils (optional)
Follow These Steps
Cut out circles from the sheet of white or colored paper that is about twice as big as you want them on the end product. You can either roll them or simply lay them down.
Take a small bowl and fill it with glue, then take your paper circles and dip the edges in the glue-filled bowl (just like you would if you were dipping lollipops).
Put the glued side on top of another circle that has already been dipped in a previous step. Make sure to keep an inch or two distance between each lollipop for easier drying time. Making too many at once will result in having some overlap which looks messy when dry!
Continue dipping and stacking in this manner until you have used up all your circles. Put them somewhere safe to dry overnight! The next day, they’ll be ready for the candy coating of your choice (chocolate or any other sweet!)

Fake Lollipop Decoration Ideas
Frozen Fake Lollipops
With these, you will need to find a Styrofoam ball and cut it in half. You then take the bottom half of the ball and twist your lollipop stick right into it like an ice cream pop. Next, wrap styrofoam pieces around the top part of the lollipop to give it a frosted look.
Construction Paper Lollipops
These are really easy and you can make as many colors or patterns that you want. All you need is a circle of construction paper; wrap your lollipop stick in tape around the edges so it doesn’t unravel, then slide right into the center of your paper circle.
Tissue Paper Lollipops
You will need some tissue paper that comes on rolls at crafts stores and a hole puncher with various sized holes for circles and hearts. Cut out shapes from the tissue papers like snowflakes, flowers, leaves, etc., punch them through any shape hole (we suggest using different sizes), thread each one onto thin wire cut about two feet in length, and cover with a lollipop stick.
Paper Roll Lollipops
Cut open one end of your paper roll, slip it over the lollipop sticks, then start wrapping on your way down to create a swirl effect and decorate as desired.
Tin Foil Lollipops
You will need some tin foil which you can buy at most dollar stores or grocery stores for about $0.50 per sheet and scissors (optional). Have kids cut different shapes from the tin foil, then wrap around their fingers to make rings that will fit onto the top of their lollipops. Now they have an adorable ring made of candy!
