Happy Spring folks! Jaime here from That’s My Letter back to share a fun DIY party decor idea: make your own lollipop stand. I promise it’s fast and easy and adds tons of charm and sweetness to any party.
This lollipop stand holds a ton of lollipops – 52 to be exact! You could probably even use this stand for cake pops. (The tutorial for the ‘celebrate’ script sign can be found here.)
- 1 – 1 1/4″ wood dowel x 11″ long
- 1 – 1×5 cut to 4 1/2″ (or any scrap wood 4 1/2″ square x 3/4″thick)
- white gloss spray paint
- 1 – 2″ wood screw
- countersink bit
- 5/32 drill bit
- tape measure
- scotch tape
Step 1: Mark the center point on the 4 1/2″ square wood base.
Step 2: Pre-drill a counter sink hole at the center of the square wood base. Also pre-drill one end of dowel.
Step 4: Mark lollipop stick holes on dowel using a pencil. Begin your marks 1″ from base and mark every 1 1/2″. Repeat on all four sides.
Step 5: Now add more lollipop stick marks in between the original four sides (staggering the holes.)
Step 6: Place a piece of tape around the 5/32 drill bit at the 1″ depth.
Step 7: Begin making ‘starter holes’ at the pencil marks. Keep your drill at a 90 degree angle to the dowel and only drill a teeny bit into dowel. This ‘starter hole’ will prevent your bit from slipping when you begin the angled holes.
Step 9: Sand dowel smooth then spray paint the lollipop holder gloss white.
Fill all the holes with lollipops for a bright and cheerful addition to your party table.
I guarantee the kids will be hovering around it!
