First, here is my inspiration picture for my recent project, a Lollipop Advent Tree. I really loved this picture and thought it would be fun and cute. This can be moderately easy project if you have a power miter saw and the right size drill bits. It was a little frustrating trying to get everything to fit, but eventually it worked.
I used brighter colors on this one. I stamped the number of days on the ends of the sticks.
Here is another one I made, using a little more traditional Christmas colors.
I used 5" x 5" pinked fabric pieces to give some fun color to the tree. I wish I had bakers twine to tie around the lollipops, but yarn works for now.
Now the kids are even more excited to count the days 'til Christmas!
