This is very simple and yet very effective and could be made using the small polystyrene cones and used as a small gift at the table along side each place setting.

This project is very easy and is a great gift, you can make them large or small depending on the family size.
Using some cardboard cut out a cone shape and stick the cone together using glue,staples or sticky tape. 
If you have a polystyrene cone then your ready to begin.
Take your wrapped lolly/Sweet and start at the bottom.
Either pin the lolly or place a small dab of hot melt onto the cone.
If you are using hot melt then place the bead of hot melt glue only on the wrapper end or the lolly will not pull away later.
Place the first row so that the end of the sweet is flush with the bottom of the cone. This will allow the cone to sit flat on a table.
Start on the next layer resting the bottom of the sweet on the top of the row below as to hide the pins or glue marks. Keep doing this until you get to the top then finish it off with a little decoration.

Love and hugs,

I left a pile of Easter Eggs in the car one year (had met a friend out shopping and brought them home for her so that the kids wouldn't see them.) No fear of that after being left in the car they were unrecognizable. lol
