For the Snowman

You will paint the spoon white and while the paint is wet sprinkle with glitter. Tap off extra glitter allow to dry. Use black puff paint and make eyes and mouth. Make a squiggle nose with orange puff paint. Tie fabric strip around for the scarf.

Slip lollipop sticks behind the scarf and the "cup" of the spoon nests the sucker part...

When the lollipop is gone stick into the Christmas tree and watch them sparkle... These are great for your childs classmates or to tie onto packages!

super cute! I am impressed with creativity!.
So-I am being lazy. I just picked up some good old plastic food at ross today. The whole pkg cost me $5. I didn't want to have to stress you out and who am I kidding, by the time I got the felt to you-you wouldn't have time anyway.
So-I figure if I am going to paint the kitchen-the food can be plastic. At least the main part of the gift is "created by mom"
Thanks so much!!!
