Purchase some inexpensive plastic party favors ~ I found 8-packs of small jack-o-lantern candy cups @ an after-Halloween clearance last year for .50 cents a package!
Rip some newspapers into small strips, and mix all purpose glue with water (4 parts glue x 1 part water) in a shallow bowl or pan. Drag the newspaper strips through the glue mixture, then slide between your thumb and index finger to remove the excess. Apply the wet newspaper strips randomly to cover the plastic cups, smoothing the paper down with your fingers as you go. When the cups are completely covered with newspaper strips, hang them to dry a few hours. Then paint with craft paints as desired, to create your own unique vintage-style candy cups! These also make cute window luminaries, just add a battery operated LED tealight candle. © copyright 2013 redshedvintage.com
