He inspected the balls for awhile, turning them around and watching the colors mix...

Clear plastic bulbs
Acrylic or craft paints
Small containers for mixing
1. Squirt a small amount of paint into one of your mixing containers. Add a few drops of water and stir. You want the paint to thin out enough to pour, so add more water if necessary. If it's too thin, add a little extra paint. Repeat in separate containers with the remaining colors.
2. Pour whichever colors you want to use into your bulb and cover the opening with tape.
3. Shake, rattle, and roll!
4. Remove the tape and let them dry upside-down so any excess paint can drain out. Once they're dry, replace the tops and hang on the tree!
