vanellope von schweetz costume tutorial – part 2 – the lollipop

It’s getting crafty up in here! I have no idea where this craftiness is coming from but I’m guessing it’s some how related to the fact that I started volunteering in my kids classroom AND I bought a V-neck T-shirt from the PTO (our school’s version of PTA), for myself. But however it happened is trifles, because check out this cool prop I have for Lexi’s Wreck it Ralph Vanelleope costume. Boom!

Wreck it Ralph Vanellope Von Schweetz costume and lollipop

What’s really freaky is that I didn’t Google “how to make an oversized lollipop,” I came up with this lick of delicious genius on my own.

Here is the video tutorial on how we made it:

Materials you’ll need:

  • Circular piece of styrofoam
  • White Poster Board
  • Colorful Pens (I used red & orange but you can use whatever colors you want)
  • Red paper tape
  • Glitter
  • Mod Podge
  • White Paint
  • Long wooden dowel

Basic steps (but watch the vid for more details):

  • Cut two circles out of the poster board (using the Styrofoam to trace the circle) & color them with the bright markers to look like a lollipop.
  • Brush Mod Podge over the colored poster board cutouts and lightly sprinkle glitter on them.
  • Glue the colored poster board circles to both sides of the Styrofoam (I used a combo of Mod Podge & Elmer’s Glue). Put a heavy book on top of the Styrofoam for an hour or so to make sure it dries and sticks.
  • Take the red tape all the way around the edge of the circle to cover up the white of the Styrofoam.
  • Paint the wooden dowel white.
  • Drill a hole in the Strofoam and stick the dowel in.
If I can do this, so can you!
