Valentine’s Day is such a special day for children. They love to share treats with their friends and special crushes. These Tootsie Pop Flower Valentines are a special way to show their friend how much they care, and they are also a lot of fun to make.
These Valentine’s Day Candy Flowers do double duty. They are cute and decorative for a fun touch and the center can be eaten as well.
To start the project, you will need some Tootsie Pops. They come in all sorts of colors and the shapes of the lollipop is perfect for the center of our rosebud flowers.
Be sure to also check out my post for Tootsie pop spiders. They make a fun Halloween project, as well.
These cute lollipop flowers can be done two ways. I used both foam heart shaped stickers and glitter heart stickers which were very easy and quick to stick to the Tootsie Pop by just peeling off the backing as one type. (The kids can do these themselves.)
If you don’t have the stickers, you could also just cut your own heart shapes out of card stock or craft foam, add glitter and then use a hot glue gun to attach. (I did some of mine this way, but adult supervision is needed for this technique.)
For another fun project using the foam hearts, be sure to check out my Valentine’s Day Heart Tree. It’s super easy and pretty to display.
Let’s make the Tootsie Pop Flower Valentines!
(This post contains affiliate links for your crafting experience.)To make these Tootsie Pop Flower Valentines, you will need these supplies.
- Tootsie Pop Lollipops
- Foam heart Shaped Stickers small and large
- Glitter heart shaped stickers small and large
- Heart shaped dish
- Floral foam
- red paper confetti
To make the Tootsie Pop Flower Valentines, start at the top of the lollipop and attach the smaller of the heart stickers around the area of the lollipop where it starts to widen. I found that 6 of the smaller stickers were just enough.
For most of the flowers, I used two rows of small stickers and 1 or 2 rows of the larger stickers. The more rows you make closely together, the more your flower will look like a rose bud.
I you use less rows that are more spread out, it makes a more open petal shape for the flower.
These Lollipop Flower Valentines are really easy to make. I made each one a little differently. Some have all foam stickers in two colors and others are all foam in one color.
Some have a rose bud shape and some have petals that are opened. I made some all with glitter hearts and some that have both glitter and foam hearts.
The sky is the limit and I enjoyed trying to get a lot of shapes and colors – Just like a real flower garden!
Making a Tootsie Pop Flowers Valentine arrangement
Don’t stop at just making these lollipop flowers to give as Valentines. They also look really cute as an arrangement.
These Tootsie Roll Flowers make a fun Valentine’s Day centerpiece for a party table. I used a heart shaped bowl and cut some floral foam to fit it with a sharp knife.Around the edges of the foam, I added some red paper confetti and then just popped the finished Tootsie Pop Flower Valentines into the foam.
Scatter some of the glitter hearts and a few extra confetti pieces nearby and you are ready to set the table with some sweet treats.
This pretty bouquet of Tootsie Pop Flower Valentines is ready to share with friend or to display. Enjoy!
