Felt Lollipop Ornaments {Christmas Ornament #3}

#3 - Felt Lollipop Christmas Ornaments



What you need:

1. A few different colors of felt
2. Hot glue gun
3. Ribbon (or another way to hang the ornament)
4. Lollipop sticks (or bbq skewers and white paint)

What you do:

1. Cut different colored strips of felt. There are many combinations and possibilities here, but I made mine between 8 and 12 inches long, and about 1 cm wide.


2. Arrange the pieces of felt like you want them. I found that they look better when you put 2 or 3 pieces of the same color next to each other. I used 6 strips per lollipop. When you are arranging them, keep in mind that the inside piece will be the smallest, and the outermost piece will need to be the longest.



{I made all of the strips about 12 inches (the long side of a sheet of felt) and then trimmed them as I went along. If you wanted to trim them ahead of time here is what you need: (7'')(8'')(9'')(10'')(11'')(12''). In the end what is most important is that your outermost piece is significantly longer than the others.}

3. Start rolling the felt together, adding a little hot glue as you go. You do not need to secure every piece.



4. When you get near the end, make sure that the pieces look staggered like this. Make sure that the outside piece is longer than the others.



5. Glue the ends. Wrap the last piece around tightly and secure very well with a hot glue gun. Flip the lollipop so that the back side is up. Glue on a ribbon and lollipop stick (I painted some bbq skewers white). Last, glue a felt circle, slightly smaller than the lollipop, to the back of the ornament. This both secures the spiral and gives a more finished look.




These are pretty simple to make. Have fun with them. Experiment with different sizes, colors, and strips of felt. For now, I just made these three.
