Valentine Hair Band Lollipop

I just love this cute idea for a Hair Band Lollipop, I saw one of these pops in a boutique last week and I knew it would be super easy to make. These pops can be a non-candy alternative for Valentine’s Day, or any other gift giving holiday. Great for Birthday treat bags, Easter baskets, stockings, you name it.

Hair Band Lollipops Free Printable


  • 3 packages Scunci Medium and small multicolored no damage hair bands (CVS)
  • 1 sheet of foam board
  • Decorative straws
  • Clear wrapping paper (Target)
  • Ribbon
  • Heavy-duty scissors
  • Hot glue and gun


I took two small glasses and drew circles on the foam board. The large pops were 3 1/2 inches across, the small pops were 2 1/2 inches across. Cut the circles out with Heavy-duty scissors.

Cut a circle out of foam board

Tip: When cutting foam board with scissors, cut on the outside of your drawn circle, then go back and trim.

Hot glue the straw to the foam circle. I put glue on the inside of the straw and outside. Let the glue dry. You can also use cake pop sticks, I just like the look of decorative straws.

Wrapping the rubber bands: First separate your bands into colors and sizes.

For the large pop: Start at the top of the pop with 6 hair bands and crisscross them near the bottom of the pop. See pic below.

This will close up the gap near the bottom straw area.

Hair Band Lollipop How-toI used 5 bands of each color and crisscrossed them across the pop. Then you diagonally add more bands of colors evenly across your circle until all gaps are filled. Use your fingernails to separate the bands and fill in the gaps. I used 10 colors at 5 bands apiece for the Red Valentine Pop.

For the multi-colored large pop:

TIP: You may need to adjust the amount of bands. Most of the Scunci packages do not come with the same amount of colors of bands. There may be more of one color than another.

Start again with 6 bands at the top and cross them at the bottom. I used 11 colors in all, 1 color for 6 bands for the top,  5 colors of 4 bands each and 5 colors of 5 bands each. Add the smaller 4 band colors to the pop first when making one without an even number of bands. Then add the 5 band colors last.

For the small pop:

I used 12 colors at 4 bands each. Follow the same directions as above.

Hair Tie PopsCut a rectangle of the clear wrapping paper, fold it over the pop and neatly bunch it up around the straw and base. Secure with a medium or small hair band. Tie a pretty ribbon around the base.

Wrap with Clear Wrapping PaperI also included some cute FREE printables to use, they are for large and small pops you can download them below. I used a 2 inch Circle Fiskars Squeeze punch for the large pops and 2 inch Scalloped Fiskars Squeeze Punch for the small pop, to cut out the tags.


I hoped you liked this post! These are such a cute idea for a quick gift for someone special! Enjoy!
