I discovered the uses for paint pens when I was attempting to fix a holiday ornament, there are so many great alternative uses, I'll share some of my favorites with you!

You can customize and add personality to a plain picture frame. Whether you're trying to coordinate with your existing décor or make a one of a kind gift for a friend, these pens add personality in short order!

Along those same lines, use the pens to repair paint on an exisiting frame or other decorative piece. The pen is easier to control than a fine tipped brush so you don't have to worry about messing up an existing line or washing the brush for that matter.

A paint pen is an easy tool for touching up nail holes in moldings. Just dab the pen over the holes for an instant touch up. The same goes for scratches and chips, easy touch up and no need to wash brushes when you're done.

Want to add a custom touch to a mirror? Use silver paint to add a faint decoration to your mirror's front, if you don't feel like you're artistic enough to do this free hand, use a stencil and trace the lines onto your mirror.

You could also customize a plain plate or platter for a special occasion.

These pens are a simple, no muss, no fuss solution for little paint jobs around the house! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
