Starting in middle of foam, hot glue end of twisted mesh. Still maintaining the twist, coil twisted mesh around itself in center, going from center out, spot gluing at you go. At end, tuck and glue it under coil.
3. Cut 3/8? wide ribbon into 10? lengths and tie bows around lollipop sticks near top. Diagonally trim ends to desire length.

Use hole punch on tag end and insert 12? lengths of thread through holes, tying and knotting them onto lollipop sticks, just above bows. Trim thread ends to 1/4?.
