The 'Original' Creative Crafting Magazine written by Crafters, for Crafters

Creative Crafting magazine began in August/September 2009, when a group of crafting friends on the Creative Connections network decided that it would be a good idea to raise awareness of the crafting community. From this point they started work and the first issue of Creative Crafting was published in October 2009 and are still publishing today.

Trick or Treat Lollipop Pendant


What You Will NeedCraft knife
Small amounts of black and green fimo
Cocktail stick
2 x  1/2 inch eye pins


Step 1. Cut off a small piece of each colour clay - around 1 cm will be fine.
Condition clay to soften and roll into balls.


Step 2.  Roll each ball into a thin sausage approximately 15 cm long.


Step 3.  Wrap the sausages around each other and cut the resulting sausage in half.


Step 4. If you like, you can roll the sausages a little to blend the twists.


Step 5. Take one sausage and coil it. Press down the end to secure. Now repeat with the second sausage.


Step 6. Cut the cocktail stick in half and push into the bottom of each lolly.
Insert an eye pin into the top of each lolly to finish.


Step 7. Remove the cocktail sticks carefully and bake according to the manufacturers instructions. You may need to use a little glue to secure the sticks back in after the lollies have cooled.
