Paint each cup with desired colors and allow them to dry. 2-3 coats may be needed, depending on your paint.
For eyeballs on the black cup, use the handle end of a paintbrush dipped in yellow paint. For ovals, load paint on the handle and “draw” the oval with it. For circles, simply dot the paint on by touching the handle to the cup.
For larger eyes (monster and Frankenstein) use a pouncer sponge applicator dipped in paint. Apply gentle pressure and twist to turn ensuring the paint is covering the surface.
You can use a Sharpie to draw on finer details such as Frankie’s stitches, mouths , eyebrows and for outlining, like on the pumpkin’s facial features.
While paint is drying, make your handles. Twist two pipe cleaners together. Insert a toothpick into the side of the cup, just below the rim. Repeat on the other side. Insert one end of the pipe cleaner handle into one of the holes on the outside of the cup. Curve the pipe cleaner over the top of the cup and insert that end into the other side. From the inside of the cup, bend the ends of the pipe cleaners to secure them in place.
Line cups with tissue paper and fill with wrapped treats and dollar store rings, crayons, and other baubles.

You can leave the inside of the cup unpainted if you prefer.
