Tissue Paper Candy Tutorial

In all honesty this project is so simple it will probably take longer to assemble the supplies than it does to create the fun decor.

These life size candies are perfect for birthday parties, Christmas décor, life size Candy Land game, fair or any candy themed party, and made completely from recycled products.


Tissue Paper Lollipop How-To


1 Sheet tissue paper any color

Plastic lid  This can be from an ice cream, butter, sherbert, cottage cheese, dip etc… depending on the size you need.

Drinking Straw  We used some decorative straws we found on sale after Christmas 15 in a pkg for $.10.


Ribbon  We used ribbon leftover from Christmas gift wrapping.


Tape straw securely to lid

Fold tissue paper in half

Lay lid on center

Fold tissue paper over and shape around circle

Tape back into place

Turn over and tie ribbon at base of lollipop

Gum Drop How To


2 Sheets paper  We used one white and one blue.

Tip:  We used two to make the paper thicker and to hide the words on the Cool Whip container we used.

Plastic dome shaped container (Cool whip, dip, sour cream, etc…)


Tip #2:  You can add some fun colored glitter to give it more of a party effect or used pre-glittered tissue paper.

Gum Drop Supplies


Lay white tissue paper on table

Turn container over in center

Fold and stuff white tissue inside

Repeat with blue tissue

Remember I used the white to cover the words on the container and give the blue a stronger effect.   You can use any color you would like.

Tip #3:  Go crazy.  Add paint swirls, glitter or use a marker to create more specialized treats.
