Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a foil-lined cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
Color the cup any way you choose with the permanent markers. When colored to your satisfaction (not all spaces have to colored) place cups on foil-lined cookie sheet. Don't worry if the colors seem too light on the cup. Once it melted they will get darker.
Carefully place the cups in the oven and watch them melt. This should take just a couple of minutes. Watch your cup closely and when it looks like it is done shrinking, remove it from the oven.
When completely cool, make a hole with the hot tip of the glue gun and string a ribbon through the hole to hang in window or on tree.
