Ghoul Favor Cups

Transform orange and black paper cups into frightfully fun take-home treat containers.

What You Need

  • Orange and black paper drink cups
  • Orange card stock
  • Orange chenille stems
  • Glass beads
  • Crafts knife
  • Small drinking glass to fit inside paper cup

How to Make It

  1. Referring to the photograph, pencil a face design onto a cup. Insert a small drinking glass inside a traced paper drink cup.
  2. Using a crafts knife, carefully cut out the pattern along the lines, using the glass as support so the paper cup doesn't bend out of shape while you're cutting.
  3. Remove the glass.
  4. Trim approximately 1 inch off the top of each cup with decorative scissors, or use straight scissors to cut a design to give the ghoul a hairline.
  5. Insert an uncut contrasting cup inside the cut cup.
  6. Punch a single hole on opposite sides of the inner cup.
  7. Print the recipient's name onto orange card stock and cut it out.
  8. Punch a hole into one end of the name strip.
  9. Cut a 10-inch length of chenille stem and thread a bead onto each end.
  10. Thread the name strip onto the chenille stem and wrap the ends through the holes of the inner cup for a handle.
