Hair Tie Lollipop Gift - ready to giftIf you're someone who uses hair ties, you know they always seem to disappear. (Just like those pesky socks!) My girlfriends and I always stuff a new pack of ties in each others gift bags as they are always welcome. I thought it would be cute if this time around, I shaped the hair ties into cute lollipops to give them. So sweet, I know. ;)


Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 lollipop


  • cardboard
  • round object the size of desired lollipop
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • 26 hair ties
  • large lollipop sticks or cookie sticks
  • ribbon

  3. Cut out the cardboard circle.
