Valentine Lollipop Covers!

As we get ready to launch our new website (yay!) we wanted to share a quick and easy Valentine project with you. Valentine Lollipop Covers can be made with our Monogrammed Heart Hair Pretties set, which you may already own. If you haven't added this sweet set to your Pickle Pie Designs collection, you may want to wait just a few more days for our new website to open and you'll find ALL of our Hair Pretties on sale at 50% off on our opening day!

Be sure to sign up for our newsletter (over there on the right ------>, then look up at the top) so you'll be among the first to know about our Grand Re-opening and the fun promotions we'll be running during the celebration!

To make Valentine Lollipop Covers:
  • Buy some cute heart-shaped lollipops - I found mine at my local Walgreens drugstore.
  • Stitch out one of the Monogrammed Heart Hair Pretties from our set, following the stitching directions included with the designs. (The "Be Mine" heart shown in the photo is included in the set!)

  • Turn your Hair Pretties design over to the back. Using small scissors or a seam ripper, cut 2 horizontal slits in the back layer of felt, near the bottom of the heart. The slits should be spaced about 1/4" apart. Cut them just wide enough to slide the lollipop stick through.

  • Slide your lollipop stick through both slits, threading it through until it won't go any further.

  • Turn the heart over to the front to see how cute your Valentine Lollipop Cover turned out! Stitch up a bunch for school Valentines or as special treats for your little loves!
