DIY Tattooed Easter Eggs

One of my favorite and cheapest Easter DIY crafts ever!

I was flipping through a magazine waiting to get my hair done when I came across these DIY Easter eggs designs using metallic paint and stencils.

It looked really similar to temporary tattoos because of the crisp lines so I thought it was worth a shot!

DIY Easter Eggs Using Temporary Tattoos

I used temporary tattoos on eggs, and the transfer was flawless! This is the easiest craft, and the design possibilities are endless!

I used both white and brown eggs and preferred the look of the brown eggs with the vintage-like floral designs. I didn’t boil the eggs and kept them in a large decorative bowl.

You can also dye the eggs before applying the tattoos as well although, I thought the designs were a lot more visible on eggs that weren’t dyed.

I had trouble finding temporary tattoos in stores so I ordered a bundle pack online.

This is the pack that is pictured in these Pinterest posts.

How To Apply:

  • Peel the plastic from the tattoo to reveal the design
  • Place the tattoo facedown onto the egg
  • Apply a wet sponge or paper towel to the tattoo (Make the sponge completely wet – it will not work if it’s just damp)
  • Wait 15-20 seconds
  • Slowly peel the paper to reveal the tattoo transfer onto the egg
  • Examine the egg with complete amazement!
