Bowling Ball Decoration Part 3 - Painting

If you have a pretty ball, you just need to paint the holes. I use craft paint and mix it as needed so it blends into the ball color. The green swirl ball needed green and dark blue to make the correct shade.

If you have an ugly ball, or you just need a different color, then you can paint the entire ball with Krylon fusion paint for plastic. They have lots of colors and textures to choose from. Just check the label to see if it is weather-resistant or not and choose accordingly. I use wax paper or parchment paper between the ball and the can.

Now is a good time to paint your stand also, if necessary. Lately, I have been using cat food bowls from Dollar Tree.
