Take two pipe cleaners in different shades or opposite colors. Hold them together and twist in place to form a single pipe cleaner in alternating colors. Twirl pipe cleaner around a pencil to form the lollipop shape.
After this use a hot glue gun, and put little dabs of glue between each swirl to hold the shape together.
Once you seal the lollipop circle, put a dab of glue on the back of it to adhere the colored straw.
When the glue is set, then add a printable party flag to the stick for a simple embellishment.
Now take ribbon and scissors. Cut the ribbon depending on how big you want your bow, and cut a smaller piece for the middle of the bow. Then pinch the bow together and glue in place to hold the bow.
