Candy bouquets are the best kind of bouquets, don’t you think? These DIY Tootsie Pop flowers are so easy to assemble and make the sweetest gift for Valentine’s Day. Here’s how to make your own… Supplies: Lollipops, red felt, scissors, and an X-acto knife. Directions: 1. Cut a flower shape out one shade of felt and a smaller flower shape out of another shade. 2. Use an X-acto knife to cut a small X shape in the center of each flower. 3. Stack the flowers on top of each other and insert the lollipop stick into the center cuts. That’s it! For extra sturdiness you can add a bit of glue to the base of the lollipop (make sure to keep it on the wrapper!)
