Are you ready for an EASY project?  I stopped at the Goodwill store last week and found a duck.  I liked the shape, but as it was I would never have put it out.  So, I decided on a simple redo!

You will need:
-  A ceramic or porcelain knick knack - in my case, it was a duck
-  Multi-surface acrylic paint - I used white birch
-  Red ribbon

This is the brand I used, available through Amazon, but you can find it at Hobby Lobby, I believe for less:

Here is the video tutorial:

1.  Clean up your piece.  I used a little rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to just clean any dust, grease or grime that might have been left on the duck.
2.  Once it dried, I just used the multi-surface paint, with a sponge brush and did 3-4 coats.  The beak and the feet needed a little more coverage than the rest of the body.
3.  Once it dried, I tied a simple red ribbon around its neck and VIOLA - that is something I would have sitting around my house!

That's it!  I told you it was easy! 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
