Cut a flap on the top of each hollow papier-mâché letter with a crafts knife. Fill with candy. Tape flap closed.
Use a glue stick to affix crepe paper to the letter.
Fold strips of the same color crepe paper in half. Use scissors to snip 1/2-inch-wide fringe on the folded edge. Glue on fringe. Trim excess.
Screw one or two eye hooks into the top of the letter. Add a dab of superglue to secure, and let dry. Tie on a string and hang.
