lollipop topiary

i thought i would share one of the projects i just finished up for ella's party today...it's a lollipop topiary! :)  i love that it's all candy, and bright colors!  ella's eyes light up everytime she looks at it! :)

i started with these zip-a-dee mini pops i bought from candy warehouse...

and a two-tier topiary i bought from crafts, etc.
it makes things so much easier to cut the sticks in half
ella..my little helper
i stuck them in both of the balls and then the bottom part too
 ella is demonstrating
it took exactly two bags of the lollis...
it is relatively simple to make...just time consuming
i stuck it in a pink pot and wrapped it in tulle...and tied it in a knot.

it's hard to tell, but i wrapped it in pink and white tulle.
whimsical. *check*  cheery. *check* childhood memories. *check* candyland. *check* colorful.*check* ella loves it (biggest priority) *check*

Thanks for sharing all these great ideas. My son has asked for a Candy Land party and you've made my work a lot easier. Thanks.

It's interesting to see just how permeant memory has become in our every day lives. It's like everytime I turn my head, I see something with a card slot or USB port, lol. I guess it makes sense though, considering how cheap memory has become as of late...

Gahhhhh... I shouldn't be complaining. I can't get through a day without my R4 / R4i!
