tootsie pops for an ol' man

Just a quick little project I couldn't wait to make for my brother-in-law who has turned 30. You can make this little gift for any age - although you may need a bigger container once you get up there in years - lol!

Materials needed:
  • container/pail (always check the $ section in Target! They always have some cute pails! This one is from Ikea)
  • floral foam square (Dollar Store)
  • paper towel
  • suckers
  • kebob skewers
  • "30 sucks" sign - cardstock, designer paper, cricut letters - whatever your lil' heart desires
  • filler (I shredded some vintage sheet music)
1. put a wadded up paper towel in the bottom for a little support

2. place foam square on top of paper towel

3. start poking the suckers in the foam alternating colors and placement for stability

here are all 30 suckers

4. (optional) shred vintage music paper in your shredder

5. stuff paper filler in all the crevices

6. attach message to kebob skewers with a little tape

7. push skewers down to desired height

birthday boy :o)

Hope you enjoy!
