Decorate christmas ornaments using temporary tattoos! What a fantastic idea by Tattly. (And you should check out their tattoos they’ve got some beauutiful ones!)
I chose to adapt their idea by adding paint inside the ornaments for a bit more color.
I had tattoos that were given to me by La petite épicerie that I hadn’t used and then I asked my friends on facebook if anyone had any lying around they weren’t using and sure enough a friend of mine gave me some that very evening!
These DIY tattooed Christmas ornaments are super simple to make and you can adapt them to you colors and style !
I strongly advise you listen to this wonderful playlist as you make them!?
- Temporary tattoos (try finding some unwanted ones from the summer)
- Christmas ornaments (mine are from walmart)
- Paint (white, green, apricot, black)
- ribbon to tie them
- optional : masking tape
1-Pour paint inside the ornaments and close the opening with maksing tape and then SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PICTURE!
If your paint is on the thick side add some nail polish remover
2- When the whole surface is covered (it’s gonna take some shaking) let them dry upside down on some newspaper
3- When the paint is dry (try leaving them for 24h), pick your tattoos, cut them and apply them like you would on your skin (get them wet with a sponge and press firmly until the paper comes right off)
You could add a scellant (varnish) I didn’t and they seem to be holding up fine!
