Kids thought these were cool, and ripped off the heads to get at their lollies. Great idea!

Cute and very easy to put together. I made these several years ago at Halloween and passed them out to the kids who came by. They were a huge hit with all of them. I actually think I got the idea back when I helped with my niece's Girl Scout troop, but I'm not sure that was too long ago. Fun idea anyway.
