Lollipop Ghost Halloween Party Invitation

Hi Friends,

Invite family and friends to your haunted house with Halloween party invitations that are part ghost and part sweet treat.

Materials and Tools:

jumbo-size flat lollipops (ours are about 5-1/2" round with a 10" wooden stick)
white felt
white card stock
double-stick tape
white pipe cleaners
red ribbon
black felt
craft glue


1. Trace around lollipop onto white card stock and cut out. Do this twice to create two white card stock circles for each ghost invite. Print or write by hand the party invitation details onto one, leaving the other blank. Use double-stick tape to adhere the circles to the front and back of the lollipop. The blank side is the ghost's face, and the side with the party info is the back.

2. Cut white felt into squares large enough to cover candy and leave enough drape to create the ghost's body (we used 20-inch squares).

3. Fold two opposite corners of the white felt square together, forming a large triangle. Place the lollipop inside the triangle, pushing it against the middle of the folded edge. Gather the felt around the lollipop and tie it securely with a white pipe cleaner. Trim off excess pipe cleaner.

4. Tie red ribbon around the ghost's neck to cover the pipe cleaner. Cut two eyes from the black felt and attach with glue.
