Ghost Pop Candy Holder by Fran W.
These candy holders are great to hand out at parties, after a Halloween program or to Trick or Treaters!

To make a Ghost Pop Candy Holder you will need:

A box of tissues
A bag of round lollipops (Charms, Tootsie Pops, etc.)
Cardboard bathroom tissue paper tubes
Tissue paper cut into 4 x 6″ rectangles
Construction paper cut into 4 1/2 x 6″ rectangles
Artificial leaves, Halloween stickers or stamps
Small zip-top bags
Small toys, treats and stickers
Optional: Hot glue, regular white glue and a paint brush
Ghost Pop

Put a lollipop in the center of a tissue and tie it at the base of the pop with a piece of yarn to form a head. Add a face with markers. 

Candy Holder

1. Fold a tissue paper rectangle in half widthwise so that it measures 3 x 4″ and tape it to one end of the cardboard tube. Doubling the tissue paper will help strengthen it so treats can be put inside. 

2. If you are going to use stamps to decorate the construction paper, do this before wrapping it around the tubes. Otherwise, go to to step 3.

3. Wrap the construction paper rectangle around the the cardboard. Tape one edge to the tube, wrap it around evenly, then tape the outer edge to secure it. 

4. Decorate the outside with artificial leaves or Halloween stickers.

5. Put small toys, treats and stickers inside the small zip-top bag and carefully put it into the tube. Try not to break the tissue paper bottom.

6. Add a ghost pop to the top, fluff up the tissue around it to hide the treat inside, and they are ready to give out.

Tip: If you want to put artificial leaves on the candy holder, hot glue works really well.

Hint: A small amount of white glue can be used to help keep the tissue and construction paper in place if needed.
