Everybody loves sweets and lollipops! And what if we combine these two? It will turn out an excellent decoration for a candy bar made with your own hands for a children’s birthday party. Imagine the delight of the children when they find that the spikes of this cute dinosaur can be eaten, the success of the dino party is guaranteed! And if there’s still much time left before the birthday, and you want to surprise your little dinosaur fan, you can make a surprise and give lollipops to him or her on this unusual stand.
Here is a free template to print the dinosaur: dinosaur-candy-holder.pdf
The supplies are colored paper, a Styrofoam ball, scissors, a sharpie and a pencil, paper and acrylic paints, a hot glue gun.
Print out your dinosaur stencil.
Make a platform to hold the dino while it’s being painted. Take a piece of cardboard and insert some nails into it.
Paint the Styrofoam ball (which is a future dino’s body) in blue color, place your ball on the platform to make painting more comfortable.
Cut out all the details of your dinosaur body, stencil the neck and the head plus tail of cardboard or very thick paper.
Stencil them on blue foam rubber and cut them out twice. Cut out spots and the comb of yellow foam rubber.
Hot glue the foam rubber neck, head and tail to the paper base adding a yellow comb into the center of this ‘sandwich’. Add some yellow spots on the tail and hot glue googly eyes to the head, draw a mouth and add yellow spots to the nose.
Wrap your lollipops into crepe paper of a matching yellow color. Hot glue the neck and the tail to the blue Styrofoam ball.
Having made some little holes with an awl, insert lollipops into instead of legs and horns into the ball. Hot glue the rest of the yellow spots on the body of your dinosaur.
