An easy and fun DIY Centerpiece - a mushroom made of lollipops! Tutorial at

I am having a birthday party for my daughter in a few weeks. One of the things she is most excited about is the Candy Bar. It is a table made to look like a candy shop with different glass jars filled with sugary goodness. Each guest gets a treat bag and can scoop up the candy of their choice. The theme of her party is Alice in Wonderland. I came up with this Lollipop Mushroom idea to add to the decorations as well as the candy bar.


Tree Branch

Start by finding a branch. We had a lot since our trees were attacked with ferocious winds, our yard was full of downed branches. I suggest something in the range of 3.5″ wide and 4 – 5″ tall. This gives a good base, but not too tall that it wants to fall over with the weight of the pops.

Once you have selected the base, spray paint it white and let it dry.

Foam Top

Take the 6″ foam ball and cut it in half, hot glue the foam to the tree branch.

One by one, start inserting the lollipops into the foam. It took about 100 pops to cover mine.
