Step 1

Lay the washcloth on a flat surface or table.

Step 2

Tightly roll the washcloth in a jelly-roll fashion so that it looks like a long stick.

Step 3

Roll the washcloth from one end to the other, coiling it tightly.


Step 4

Wrap cellophane around the coiled washcloth, gathering it at the bottom at the end of the washcloth.

Step 5

Put a small rubber band around the gathering of the cellophane. Secure your rubber band tightly, leaving just enough room to add the "lollipop" stick.


Step 6

Place your craft stick, dowel or popsicle stick through the opening of the cellophane.

Step 7

Tie a small piece of curling ribbon over the rubber band to secure the stick in the cellophane covering.


Step 8

Add hot glue to the middle of the curling ribbon.

Step 9

Place a pom-pom on the glue.


Match the pom-pom with any of the colors in the washcloth.


Do not use tape or glue on the washcloth.
