Here’s what you’ll need, and what I used to make these. You could easily get by without some of these tools, but they make it go quick.

You will need: a paper crimper by Fiskars, Martha Stewart fringe scissors, white paper lollipop sticks by wilton, strong hold glue dots, and green and orange cardstock. If you can find orange cardstock with polkadots, even better! The paper I used is by Echo Park: stripes and dots.

Start with one long 12 x 1/2 inch strip of orange paper and one 3in x 2 inch strip of green paper.

Start with the green paper and cut little fringes up one side, making sure not to cut all the way through.

Now that both pieces are ready, you can adhere them with the glue dots to the lollipop stick. Place a glue dot at one end, and wrap the orange paper tightly around the lollipop stick.

Do the same thing at the other end of the stick with the green cardstock. Fray out the little green fringes to give it a more crazy look.

Release the orange paper and pull it out from the stick, it will want to curl back in, but it will won’t be as tight. Once you have it pulled out, adhere it to the base of the green paper with a small glue dot.

    Very cute another idea for the top & you wouldn’t need special scissors – my rosemary is crazy in my yard – they would be cute green for the tops
