DO IT YOURSELF PURPOSE: To enable individuals to create simulated braille on ornaments. Fabric paint applied to a glass ornament creates a tactile image. Using a Simulated Braille Technique (see entry), a braille message can be added to the ornament. Required supplies include fabric paint in a variety of colors, round or bulb-shaped glass ornaments in solid colors, and a wine glass to support the bulb during decorating. Place the bulb in the wine glass to support the bulb. With fabric paint, make a design on the upper half of the ornament, such as an abstract green tree dotted with colored "lights" and topped with a gold star. Allow to dry overnight. Turn the ornament over and using the Simulated Braille Technique, add the recipient's name, the gift-giver's name, or other message. Allow to dry overnight. TITLE: Take This All as a Gift!
