Temporary Tattoo Ornaments

Supplies

  • Shatterproof ornaments
  • Spray paint (or just buy the ornament in the right color and skip this step)
  • Printable temporary tattoo paper (or pre-made temporary tattoos)
  • Washcloth
  • Water
  • Protective enamel spray

Step 1: Spray paint your ornament. You wouldn’t think it’d be hard to find plain white shatterproof ornaments, but IT IS. So I ended up spray painting mine, and that worked fine. But I am always about cutting out steps if possible, so go that route if you can.

Step 2: Create your tattoo following the printable temporary tattoo paper instructions. I bought this cute flower on Etsy, and I love it. You can find similar here. Or, again, cut out this step if you can find cute temporary tattoos already made.

Step 3: Apply your tattoo to the ornament using a wet washcloth. If you painted your ornament, make sure it is 100% dry before doing this step.

Step 4: Spray the ornament with protective enamel spray to seal the tattoo.
