Lolly Pop Ghost
Lolly Pop Ghost
Cut 2 squares of white material approximately 10cm x 10cm. Lay them down so that the top piece is rotated 45 degrees to the bottom, giving you 8 points. Place a lolly pop in the centre and gather the material up around it. Tie with a piece of white wool. Stick or draw on eyes and a mouth. To make arms gather up part of the material and tie with more wool.
