The Eensie Weensie Spider...

A friend of mine sent me a link to a blog with these cute lollipops a few weeks ago and I am just now getting to make these cute little Halloween favors. They are so fun and easy too! The hardest part for me was actually finding flat lollipops/suckers. I found all kids of round ones (dum-dums, tootsie pops, etc.), but had to look hard to find the flat ones.

Anyway, here is a link to the blog I got the idea from. (You can also do these on either side of a peppermint pattie-probably would have been much easier to find for me. :)

(Here is another link to another blog where she also made the spiders and she shows all the punches she used to make it so fast and easy. Unfortunately, I only have the scallop circle punch, and a couple of the larger circle punches, so I cut out the rest-thus the lopsided smaller circles.) Oh well-they are still cute!

I have a pumpkin I bought from Hobby Lobby? a few years ago that plugs into the wall and has a light inside it. I screwed holes all over the top of it and I have put lollipops in it sticking out. (I saw my mom do this first. Thanks mom!) I thought these would be super cute in the pumpkin this way!!! I have taken it places and set it out that way as a treat and decor and also thought of leaving it on our porch that way this year when we are out trick-or-treating. (Make sure you don't frill holes all the way down the back of the pumpkin-it will fall over from the weight of all the suckers that way.) My daughter is now wanting me to fill all of the holes with these! Back to work! :)Below: This is how I found them arranged a bit later (from my daughter-it seems that they are all having a conversation. :)
