When you’re short on time and in need of an easy DIY Valentines for the kids class party, there’s nothing better than these homemade flower lollipops. Just grab a few supplies from your arts and crafts box and they’ll be good to go in no time!
I know Valentine’s Day is still over a month away, but the day will be here before we know it. Sure you can always run to the store and pick up some ready-to-go Valentines, but it’s so much more fun and personable to create your own at home with the kids.
I saw the prettiest heart-shaped pops from Pottery Barn and knew we had to create our own version.
I figured we could decorate the pops as different types of flowers for a super cute Valentine!
How to Make a Flower Lollipop
- Flat lollipops
- Colored card stock
To start, simply gather an assortment of colored lollipops to decorate as flowers. The more variety of colors, the cuter the array of flowers you can create.
Next, draw out various flower shapes. We made tulips, daisies and lillies by freehand. If you have cookie cutters, even easier!
If your child is of cutting age have them help cut out the various patterns — if not, you can do this yourself. You can even trace your flowers and use several pieces of paper at once to cut in bulk. Saves time if you need Valentines for the whole class.
Then cut out green stems to intertwine onto the lollipop stick. We used some Elmer’s glue to attach the flower and stem to the lolly.
Personalize your Valentine on the back or leave as is.
As I mentioned, these Valentine flower lollipops are as easy as it gets and make a fun way to transform a simple treat.
