It still has been a bit unseasonably warm here. Plus, we also have had some rainy weather. Thankfully, we weren’t in the path of the latest hurricane. However, fall is right around the corner now.
Therefore, we can’t help but begin to think about Halloween. My girls just mentioned their Halloween costume ideas. Last year’s costumes seem like a lifetime ago. I also can’t believe it is that time to decide on their costumes. But decide I believe they did after a visit yesterday to our local Spirit Halloween.
My girls also reminded me that we must visit Otto the Ghost. See our local nursery; Hicks has a whole display showcasing the friendly ghost.
You walk through to read the animated story with animatronic figures helping to make his story come to life. They update the tale annually to keep it fresh. My girls still love it and Otto the Ghost, too.
The Friendly Ghost Is A Halloween Classic!
Doesn’t fail though and the friendly ghost is still once again tops to them.
So what better way to celebrate and get ready for our annual visit with Otto, then to make Lollipop Ghosts?
Therefore, I couldn’t resist. I mean even as a kid I can recall getting lollipop ghosts when I trick-or-treated. Plus, I know my girls have gotten them, too. So, these aren’t new by any means. People have been making them for years.
I always wanted to make them myself. For this reason, I finally decided to give it a try. Seriously, Lollipop Ghosts are so very easy to make.
These Lollipop Ghosts are not only perfect for trick-or-treaters. But also for Halloween themed parties or class parties.
Trust me; these Halloween Lollipop Ghosts are truly versatile. Plus, I bet once you make them once you’ll want to make them again and again. At least, I know that is how I felt after the first time making them.

Lollipop Ghosts for Halloween
Supplies for Lollipop Ghosts
- Dum Dum or other small, round candy suckers

- Black permanent marker
Instructions for Lollipop Ghosts
1. Place the round candy end of the lollipop into the middle of a baking cup.
2. Press the sides of the baking cup towards the lollipop stem, giving a slight twist close to the round candy, to form the head of the ghost.
3. Secure the twist by tying a piece of ribbon around the neck of the ghost.
4. Use the black permanent marker to draw dot eyes on the ghost’s face.
5. Hand out to children or display by attaching the lollipops into a foam base.
**Note: For larger suckers like Tootsie Roll Pops, use jumbo baking cups. You can also use napkins, facial tissues, and tissue paper.
There you have it, a very uncomplicated tutorial to make Lollipop Ghosts for all your favorite trick-or-treaters this Halloween.

I have two observations about all these craft ideas of yours; one, you must be exhausted at the end of a day if you do all of these, and two, you are the coolest mom in the world!
Happy Thursday, Janine!
Aw, thanks, Bill! And I like crafting and cooking in all honesty. So, to me, it is just relaxing and cathartic in all honesty. Happy Thursday to you, too 🙂

OMG so adorable. We’ll definitely make these.
Aw, thanks Kristi and do hope you guys can make these soon, too 🙂
Can you do this and make snowmen instead? I missed out on the Halloween treats for my gd class, but would love to make snowmen for the first day it snows here. Ideas please?
Hi Kate, I honestly never made them as snowmen before. But I’d bet you could probably just draw on the snowman face with a little orange carrot nose. Possibly, tie green felt string for a scarf. As for the hat, maybe you could even hot glue a black snowman hat that cut to size by using either felt or construction paper, as well.
