Easy to make Tootsie Pop Snowman. After making the Tootsie Pop Turkey this year, I kept trying to think of something similar to make at Christmas! This is one of the ideas I had. They would be cute as place cards at a meal or stuck on top of a present!

We just did one as an office warming gift for the new pastor.

Took a small sized real pumkin, took a small drill it, drilled holes all over it in a pattern, stuck in dumdum suckers so that as new people came into meet him, he could offer them a sucker.

I have posted a valentine decoration using tootsie pops, could be altered for any holiday.

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! Tootsie Pop Santa

Approximate Time: 30 minutes


  • 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

Tootsie Pop Santa Supplies


  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.

For a fun Halloween treat, you will need Tootsie Roll Pops, squares of white fabric, rubber bands and a black Sharpie pen.

Cut the fabric into 4 inch squares. Place over Tootsie Roll Pop so the Pop is in the center of the fabric.

Pull tight over the Pop and secure with a rubber band on the stick directly under the Pop.

Using the Sharpie, dot on two eyes.

With scissors, cut the fabric to give it a torn, ragged look. Or you can leave the fabric intact.
