These are adorable and make wonderful party favors for the Christmas season, or could be used as place cards for seating guests for a Christmas dinner.

They would also work well for Valentine day party favors, or just about any other holiday, if the colors were changed to reflect the season.

Tootsie roll pop
10″ piece of narrow ribbon about a quarter inch wide, in red or green

  • To make the hair, cut a small bit of the yarn, dot glue onto the head and then push it into the glue, one or two strands at a time.
