Supplies: 18 inch styrofoam cone, 1 spool of matte black ribbon and 1 spool of satin black ribbon, taper runner or double sided tape, scissors, lollipops.
Directions: Starting at the top, measure and cut a piece of ribbon to wrap around the cone once. Put a little bit of taper runner (used for scrapbooking projects) or double sided tape on the end of the ribbon. Wrap the cone at a slight angle with the ribbon and secure it with the sticky side of the ribbon to keep it in place. Repeat wrapping the cone with ribbon, alternating matte and satin finish ribbons to create a striped effect. Let the ribbons overlap a tiny bit, but so that you can still tuck a sucker in between the ribbon. Carefully stick lollipops into the styrofoam cone, in between the ribbon. As you add lollipops, the cone might get heavier on one side. Add more lollipops than you’ll need and keep them evenly distributed to keep the cone from falling over.
