Spring is here… Almost! I am really ready for the weather outside to match how excited I am about Spring and Easter that will be here soon. In the meantime, I whipped up some little beauties to share with you… Temporary Tattoo Easter Eggs!
Aren’t they just so lovely? They might be the most elegant Easter decoration I’ve ever made… and the easiest!
The most difficult part was boiling the eggs. You just can’t beat that, right?! I am not usually a big fan of tattoos and who would have thought that they could be turned into such a classy holiday decoration? But they are!!
The possibilities are endless when it comes to using temporary tattoos for Easter eggs, but once I saw these Beautiful Butterflies I was in love! I purchased them off of Amazon and there was even free shipping (we are affiliates).
Would you like to learn how to make them?
Supplies. This is so simple… boiled eggs, temporary tattoos and a wet washcloth! You certainly can dye them first, but I love them as white and simple as can be. It is up to you.
Step One. Before you get started, make sure that your eggs are dried completely. This will ensure that the tattoo will remain intact. Take the clear plastic cover off of the tattoo and place the tattoo face down on top of the egg.
Step Two. Make sure the tattoo is placed where you want it on the egg before you add any water. Once you have it placed, dab a damp washcloth on top of the paper. Don’t saturate it too much, but do make sure the tattoo is removed in its entirety from the paper label.
That is it… so incredibly easy to make! Seriously, I made a dozen in less than five minutes.
Aren’t they fabulous? So vibrant and fun… even the kids can make them with little effort at all!

So pretty!! I think I might need to pick up some new tattoos first- my boys’ are all of skulls and dinosaurs:) I don’t know if they would look quite as cute. Great idea, once again, Trish!!
I had no idea temporary tattoos worked on anything other than skin, let alone eggs! What a cool idea! If I can get my hands on a tattoo, maybe from a quarter machine or something like that, I’m definitely going to try this come Eastertime. 🙂
Beautiful! These eggs are really elegant.
A very good ideas Thank !!!
