DIY Giant Lollipop Party Centerpiece

Here's a "sweet" decoration for your party - giant lollipop centerpieces!

Whether its a candy party, sweetshop celebration, or a visit to Sugar Rush, these giant, easy-to-make lollipop centerpieces will be the hit of your party!

What you'll need

  • Length of white plastic PVC pipe (2' - 4')
  • Colored paper lantern
  • Basket or stand
  • Clear plastic wrap (or bag)

How to make it

  1. First, gather your materials. Paper lanterns can often be found at dollar or craft stores, along with inexpensive baskets.

    You can find PVC pipe at your local hardware or builder supply store, and they can cut it to whatever lengths you like. The "lollipop sticks" can be different lengths, as shown here, or you can make them all the same.

    For the stand, you can use floral foam, a wrapped up towel, or whatever else is convenient and will keep it steady. Alternately, you could place them in the ground, and have a row of giant lollipops leading to your candy party!

  2. Insert the PVC pipe into the middle of your paper lantern. You can tape, or use maleable wire, to fasten the lantern to the pvc pipe. It doesn't have to be very firm, just enough to keep it steady.

  3. Wrap the paper lantern in clear plastic wrap, or if you can find one, a large clear plastic bag.

  4. DIY Giant Lollipop Party Centerpiece

    Gather the clear plastic around the PVC pipe, and fasten closed with tape, string, pipe cleaners, or whatever is handy.

  5. Place your giant lollipop in the stand and, if you like, cover with fabric, as shown.

  6. Repeat for your other giant lollipops. Enjoy!
