Step 1:
Paint the front half of each ball with the white craft paint and allow to dry. After 15 minutes, add another coat and allow to dry completely.

Step 2:
Paint Cat Eye shapes on each ball with the green craft paint and allow to dry 15 minutes before adding the second coat.

Step 3:
Add a layer of the Glow in the Dark Mod Podge to cover the painted areas. Allow to dry 30 minutes in between each coat. I added 4 coats. 

Step 4:
Push a skewer through the center of each ball and then place in the branches of a bush or tree and cover the skewer with leaves so they are hidden. 

Step 5:
Light a black light on Halloween to really get them to glow!
