I love colourful projects and these flower lollipops for Spring just make my heart happy! I first made these with my daughter 8 years ago when she was in Grade 4 and since then, they have always been one of my favourite things to make for Easter and Spring. And despite their pretty sculptured look, they are surprisingly simple to make with a few supplies.
I have made these with lollipops with kids and it's so fun to watch them experiment with colour. One year, my daughter and some of her friends even made some tie-dye looking flowers that were really cool. There are so many lovely colour choices for these simple lollipops, and the colours can be coordinated for any event. All that is needed is a few supplies that you can find at either at your local Michaels Store or Bulk Barn.
Flower Lollipops
Supplies:
Melting wafers in different colours
Lollipop mold {I got mine at the Bulk Barn for $3.69}
Paint Brushes for Food
Lollipop sticks
Directions:
1. Place melting wafers in small bowl and melt according to package directions. For painting flower centers, melt very small amounts at a time. Make sure lollipop mold is clean and dry.
2. Using paint brush, paint flowers centers with melted wafers. Let set for 10-15 minutes or until firm.
3. Once flower centers are 'set', melt another colour of wafers. Stir until smooth and then pour into mold...not quite filling it to make the flower.
4. Place lollipop stick in melted wafer as shown. 
5. Pour a little bit more melted wafer over top to hold it firmly into the lollipop. Let lollipops set for 20 minutes. {You can pop them into the freezer for a few mintues too}Then using fingers, gently pop flowers out of mold.
By using a few different colours, you should find yourself with a beautiful assortment of flowers to create a beautiful bouquet like the one I made below.
Add these little cuties to a pot with some paper grass for a pretty arrangement or centerpiece for a table. They are also a fun treat for Easter, a children's birthday party, bridal or baby shower.
These treats are so bright and colourful that they cannot help but add some happy cuteness to any occasion.
Thank you so much for visiting me!
