Woven Lollipops

You will need:

  • Plastic canvas circle (Weaving Circle)
  • Pipecleaners
  • Yarn
  • Yarn needles
  • Wooden sticks


  1. Starting in the centre of the plastic canvas circle weave a pipecleaner in and out of the holes. Follow the circle pattern around the canvas circle.
  2. When you have woven your pipecleaner, follow with a different colour of pipecleaner or a piece of yarn. When weaving with yarn you may need to use a yarn needle.
  3. Continue to weave the whole circle with various colours and thicknesses of yarn and pipecleaners. This will give your lollipop a nice textured, bright appearance.
  4. Finally, stick a wooden stick to the back of the woven circle.
