Oh So Spooky Nut Cups!

 I wanted some super fun and spooky details for my witches party.  I found these large size nut cups at the dollar store, and spray painted them black.  I didn't like the unevenness of the paint around the rim, but also didn't want to paint the rims, as I didn't want paint on the inside food surface.  I ended up using some more of my great black and white woven trim to finish off the edge, and then lined them with inside out cup cake papers.   The cute little skeletons, I also got at the dollar store, were posed to look like they were holding the nut cups.  I actually hot glued the first one I made, but realized that I could just 'pose' them and they stayed just fine.  I told my daughter Emily (25) how cute they were, and when she saw them she said the were great, but definitely NOT cute ...
I used arsenic labels that I printed off Graphics Fairy for the front of the cups, the skull and crossbones fit perfectly with the skeletons. (Check my side bar for a link to Graphics Fairy!)

On the left is a close up of one cup and on the right, we see a cup filled and taking its position in the place setting of my witches party.  I will post soon with more details about the party.  Its was a lot of spooky fun, in fact my four year old granddaughter said "Grandma, this is the BEST witches party EVER!"
