Halloween Push-up Pops

Halloween push-up pops

These Halloween push-up pops are just too stinkin' cute for words!

Push-up pops are all the rage right now, so I wanted to put a fun holiday twist on this popular treat.

With just a few simple embellishments and some green Jello, these Witch and Frankenstein Halloween goodies were born.

How to Make these Halloween Push-up Pops

You'll Need:

Instructions for Witch's Hats

how to make a witch's hat

  • For each witch's hat, cut one 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" square from black cardstock. Trim the top edge of the square to resemble a rounded edge, as seen in the image above. Roll into a cone shape and secure with double-sided tape.
  • Cut one 2-inch circle from black cardstock for each hat. I used a 2-inch circle punch to make the job easy. Flatten the mini cupcake liners; secure the circle to the center of the back side of the liner.
  • Add a small amount of hot glue to the edges of the cone, then secure to the top of the cupcake liner.
  • Measure a length of ribbon to wrap around the base of the cone (mine was cut between 3 and 3 1/2 inches), then secure to the cone with hot glue. Cut a small rectangle out of gold paper. Cut out the center to resemble a buckle, then adhere to the center of the ribbon.

Instructions for Witch's Skirts

  • For each skirt, cut one 6 1/4" length of ribbon, and one 15" x 2 3/4" length of each color of tulle (image 1).
  • Layer the tulle strips on top of each other and align with the edge of the ribbon, secure with hot glue (see image 2).
  • Fold the tulle back on itself to create a pleat; secure with hot glue (image 3). Repeat all the way to the end of the ribbon (image 4).
  • Use hot glue to secure the completed skirt to the bottom edge of the push-up container.

Assembling the Witch Halloween Push-up Pops

Attach eyes to each witch with dabs of hot glue. Use a red Sharpie to draw a mouth on each witch. Add eyebrows or other details that you'd like with a black Sharpie.

Use the disk from the spare container you've designated for this project, and secure it to the bottom of the stick to create a stand.

Fill with green jello and allow to set. Top with hats.

Note: These are not sealed containers and the Jello leaks a bit before setting. I recommend placing the containers on a foil-lined tray to catch the drips and avoid a mess in your refrigerator.

Instructions for Frankenstein Hair

  • Measure a length of crepe paper to wrap around the top of the container. Cut the paper in half as pictured above.
  • Cut rugged notches out of the paper to resemble hair. Secure onto the container with hot glue.
