    You can try using Chinese calligraphy paper instead of newspaper because it's not printed, therefore (1) no ink to get on hands, (2) less paint needed to cover the prints (3) shorter drying time

    I used to use balloons as molds & pop them when I was done.

    As to how to hang it, it can be as simple as a cross made from two chopsticks wrapped in ribbon or yarn; or a circular one made from store bought styrofoam ring, cut out from cardboard; or any shape you can form with a wire hanger. I've made one out of a hanging drying rack that comes with clothespins (out of laziness). I just clipped the items to the pins and changed them periodically.
