These are ceramic bug ornaments. I wanted something “non christmasy themed” and this fit the bill nicely. They started out as unfinished ceramic and we used paint pens to color them. The kids loved using the paint pens (so much easier and less mess), but you couldn't be quite as detailed due to the thicker tips....so that's the trade off. Regardless, these were a hit as well and can be tied to a package or hange from a door knob or hook year round.
