The lollipops are easy to make and are a relatively inexpensive gift or party favour.

  1. 1

    Lay your baby washcloth on your working surface with any side facing upward. Fold about 1 inch of one edge of the washcloth over and smooth the fold line.

  2. 2

    Fold over another inch of the washcloth along the same edge and continue until you have folded the entire washcloth to make a long strip that is about 1 inch wide.

  3. 3

    Roll the strip up like a jellyroll.

  4. 4

    Cut a square of clear or semi-transparent cellophane wrap and wrap the square around the jellyroll.

  5. 5

    Gather the cellophane wrap underneath the jellyroll and wrap an elastic band around the cellophane to keep it in place.

  6. 6

    Slide a lollipop stick or thin wooden dowel through the cellophane and slide it into the elastic band to hold it in place.

  7. 7

    Cut a 10-inch-long piece of 1/2 inch wide ribbon. Wrap the ribbon over top of the elastic band and tie the ribbon in a bow.

Tips and warnings

  • To turn the baby washcloth lollipops into a small bouquet, make 3 to 4 lollipops, gather them together in your hand and tie a ribbon around the lollipop sticks to keep them together.
  • To make a large, centrepiece display of the lollipops, use long, thin wooden dowels for the lollipop sticks. Make 10 to 12 lollipops. Fill the bottom of a vase with green floral foam and insert the ends of the sticks into the foam. Wrap a large 2-inch-wide ribbon around the vase and tie it in a bow.
