Winter Wonderland Decorated Popsicles
Create a stunning winter wonderland out of your popsicles for the holidays. These winter wonderland decorated popsicles are a fun crafting project, as well as a unique and eye-catching dessert.
I went with a popsicle brand that is affordable and easy to find, no matter where you live in the US. BudgetSaver comes with white and red popsicles, which are perfect for this project.

Tools for Winter Wonderland Decorated Popsicles
The winter wonderland pops can be decorated in two ways. The first is to make a glittery mint swirl pattern. Using a popsicle wrapper, I drew a swirl with a marker, then cut it out to use as a template.
Place template on the wrapper of a red popsicle. Dip your paintbrush in modge podge, scraping off any excess glue. Paint a lined down the border of your template. Remove template and fill in the rest with more glue. Make sure your glue layer is thin and even.
Pour fine white glitter over glue, then shake off. You can use your pinky finger or a clean paintbrush to wipe off excess glitter.
Make sure to work quickly to prevent popsicle from melting. Place in freezer, then repeat the same process, but with a white popsicle and turquoise glitter. Rotate through pops, adding swirls around the wrappers until complete, storing in freezer in between turns.
The second idea to create your winter wonderland desserts, are snowman popsicles. Glue the back of three buttons, then place down the center of the wrapper around a popsicle. I used white popsicles, to look like the snow of a snowman. Tie turquoise ribbons around popsicles, to look like scarves. Use tape to adhere the top stray piece to the bottom piece so that they stay put.
Leave all popsicles in freezer until serving.
