Tootsie Pop Santa

Easy to make Tootsie Pop Santa. To go along with my Tootsie Pop Snowman, this Santa would make the perfect treat a child on Christmas. These make great party favors or place cards. Another option in presenting this to someone might be to attach a string and hang it on the tree as an ornament!

Approximate Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • cardboard square (approx. 2x2 inches)
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • felt (red and white)
  • pompom, small (white)
  • Sharpie marker
  • wooden bead (1 inch)
  • acrylic paint (light pink)
  • Tootsie pop
  • pipe cleaners (black and metallic gold)
  • glitter

Instructions:

  1. Paint wooden bead light pink. Let dry. Slide bead onto stick of Tootsie Pop.
  2. Hat: Cut triangle (approx. 1.25 inches wide x 1.75 inches high) out of red felt. Trim: Cut thin strip (approx. 2 inches long) out of white felt. Glue trim to "hat" leaving a little over hang on both sides of "hat". Glue pompom onto tip of "hat".
  3. Wrap "hat" around bead "head". Put glue on ends of "trim" and attach to "head". Draw "eyes" on "head" just below the bottom of the "hat".
  4. Cut a triangle (approx. 1.5 inches wide x 1.5 inches long) out of the white felt. This makes his "beard". Cut a "U" shape out of the top of the triangle. Fold triangle (lengthwise) and snip a small triangle out the "beard" for his "mouth".
  5. Glue the "beard" to the sides of the "head".
  6. Cut a piece of black pipe cleaner long enough to wrap around the Tootsie pop. Cut a small piece of gold pipe cleaner, wrap around the center of black pipe cleaner to make the "buckle". Twist the ends of the "belt" together to secure it to the pop.
  7. Cut two two "L" shaped pieces of red felt to make the "arms". Cut two small pieces of white felt and glue to the ends of the "arms" to make the "cuffs".
  8. Glue the "arms" to the sides of the Tootsie pop.
  9. Glue the Tootsie pop to the piece of cardboard OR attach a string to it and make it an ornament. (Optional) Paint cardboard white and sprinkle glitter onto the wet paint!

NOTE: I did not glue any parts of the Santa to the Tootsie Pop stick. That way it can be easily removed prior to eating.
