Hanging Lolly Art

I have had a lot of fun the past few weeks making things for my girl’s rooms.  This is my newest creation.


They are cute and super simple to make.

I got the idea from Ashley’s Dandelion Wishes and she has a great tutorial as well.

I started out with my choice of 3 papers

For each larger circle you will need 4 strips of paper that measure 6 x 12.  For the smaller green and blue circle I used my Big Shot and the Designer Rosette Die.  It pre-scores the Lolly and gives it a fun edge. I only needed 3 strips for that one because it is smaller.

Score every 1/2 inch and then accordion fold the strip of paper.

When all 4 pieces are scored and folded glue the ends together so you have a large circle.

When you push the sides down it will make a lolly.  To secure the lolly take a smaller scrap of paper (I used the white circle to the left of the lolly) and pile on the hot glue.

Put the scrap of paper with the glue in the center of the lolly before it is pushed down and push down pushing the outsides to the center.

Then put a little squirt of hot glue in the very center to hold it nice and tight.

I then used a coordinating color and cut out another circle design from the  Pennants Big Shot Die and hot glued it on.

Then I topped it off with a little strip of ribbon and a button.

All 3 of the lollies on the floor.  (I love how the colors coordinate each other!)

And here they are hanging from the ceiling in the corner of my girl’s room.  Ashley suggests using fishing line but that was out in the shed and it was snowing so I used some clear jewelry cord instead.

It looks so nice hanging there because the lollies turn just a little as they hang.
