The supplies are SO simple. One pumpkin trick or treating bucket. I like the old school kind that are actual jack-o-lanterns with a hole in the top. **Note to self, they don’t make them that much anymore and this one was HARD to find. We dug through the basements of everyone I know to find this one…Thanks Guys! Two bags of lollipops and a styrofoam ball that fits firmly in the hole of the bucket. I bought large and small Tootsie Pops for a variation in sizing. You can paint the ball if you’re really adventurous but you don’t have to. The cost is about $6.
Begin by pushing the ball onto the hole. It needs to be a tad bigger than the hole or it will fall through. If you use different sizes of lollipops, push the larger ones randomly into the ball across the entire exposed ball. Next place the smaller ones in the gaps until the ball is fully covered. It is that easy. You are

As your trick-or-treaters come over, allow everyone to pull from the pumpkin’s candy head. You’ll be the coolest house on the block – fun times!
This is also a great idea for a candy bouquet not during Halloween. It makes a great teacher gift, get well soon present, or a bouquet for your desk.
You need a pot, a styrofoam ball, tissue paper, and lollipops. Smaller pots work better with Dum-Dums, but use what you like or what you have. This cost about $3-4. If you have the pot and a piece of styrofoam that will work, the candy is $2.
I also didn’t want to paint the ball so I wrapped it in a leftover piece of tissue paper. Then repeated the same steps as above. Push the Dum-Dums into the ball. Because I was using lollipops that are all the same size, I made circles around the ball from the bottom to the top.
