Lollipop Guild Pants
Put on your pants. Make a note where your knee is in relation to the pants leg. Place a sewing pin in the fabric to mark the spot.
Take your pants off and lay them on a flat surface. Be careful not to stick yourself with the sewing pin.
Fold the pants in half so that the leg sections are on top of each other. The leg with the sewing pin should be on top.
Use a ruler to mark a horizontal chalk line across the pants leg. This is the cutting line.
Cut the bottom portion of the legs away from the pants. Make sure to cut both layers of the pants legs.
Create the triangular fringe at the end of the shorts. Cut 2-inch triangles into the bottom of the pants legs all the way around the bottom of each leg.
Lollipop Guild Shirt
Button the plaid shirt. Hot glue the large buttons over the top of the second, fourth and sixth button. Let the glue dry.
Paint the shirt collar with white acrylic paint. Make sure to use two layers of paint for complete coverage.
Cut the bottom shirttail off of the plaid shirt so that there is a straight edge. The shirt should rest a little above your waist.
Create the triangular fringe at the end of the shirt. Cut 2-inch triangles into the bottom of the shirt all the way around the bottom edge.
Lollipop Guild Leggings
Pull on the white leggings.
Cut strips of green duct tape 2-inches wide and at least 8-inches long. The strips should be long enough to wrap completely around each section of your leg and long enough to overlap.
Place the first 2-inch strip of duct tape 4 inches above your ankle. Wrap the tape loosely around your leg so that the leggings can come off.
Place duct tape every 1 inch up your leg until you reach your knee. Do not wrap the tape tightly.
Lollipop Guild Lollipop
Paint the dowel rod with white acrylic paint. Let it dry.
Cut the foam board into a 10-inch circle. This is the lollipop form.
Duct tape one end of the dowel rod to the center of the foam board.
Place a dab of hot glue on the center of the foam board and randomly around the surface.
Lay the sheet of crepe paper over the hot glue. Press the paper into the hot glue.
Wrap the edges of the crepe paper around the lollipop form and glue the paper to the other side of the foam board.
Wrap a large piece of cellophane around the crepe paper on the stick. Secure it in place with a piece of ribbon tied in a bow.
