We Made It: Easter Lollipop Flowers

Today we made a nice display of Easter lollipop flowers as seen here.
The first thing we did for these was to color some rice green. This is to put into the pot where we will display our "flowers".
To color your white rice, simply add liquid food coloring to the rice in a ziploc bag.
Shake--shake--shake.....add more food coloring as needed and shake some more.
After achieving the wanted color---I place the rice onto a baking sheet and put in the oven at 250 degrees for about 15 minutes. This sets the color and helps dry out the rice.
While the rice is drying, insert lollipop sticks into the candy. The easiest candy to use are Reese's Peanut Butter candies. It is easier to put the lollipop sticks into the candy if you use a toothpick to get the hole started in the candy.
I used plastic Easter cups for our "vases". Fill each cup halfway with something heavy--we used these glass discs. Making the cups heavy keeps them from easily tipping over.
Now fill each cup almost to the top with the green rice.
Add the lollopop flowers--and the there you go---Easter Lollipop Flowers!
See what other did this week at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman.
