DIY Neon Puffy Paint Ornaments

Here's a super simple DIY holiday ornament that you can whip up in a flash that even the kids can have fun creating.  Neon puffy paint makes these bright and cheerful, but you can use holiday colors or glitter paint.  I am a big fan of low stress, high impact crafts, how about you?

You will need:
Glass or plastic clear ornaments
Wooden dowels or skewers
Remove the caps.  Slide the wooden dowels into some foam.  Slide ornament on dowel to secure while you work.
Start at the bottom of the ornament squeezing paint in small circles working from the bottom to the top.   Leave the ledge that holds the cap unpainted.
Slide ornaments into some foam to secure.  Let the ornaments dry overnight.
Make more ornaments in different colors!
 No stress, no mess. That's my kind of crafting.

Bob Duncan, as he’s known throughout Fresno and the industries he supported for more than 30 years, was pivotal to the development of Duncan Ceramics, a dream of Erma Duncan, his mother. Bob, along with his father, Lee, and brother, Dick, shared Erma’s passion to provide an easy means for people to experience the magic of Ceramic Arts via quality products and exceptional education.
