Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Set two or three Styrofoam coffee cups upside down on a cookie sheet.

Use 12-oz. cups for Barbie-sized hats; 6- and 8-oz. cups for pin-on accessories.

Leave plenty of space between each cup.

Put the cookie sheet in the center of the oven.

Keep a close eye on the cups while they shrink.

Glue a safety pin or jewelry pin on the back of one cup and wear it proudly.
