DIY Temporary Tattoo Mugs

Make these DIY Temporary Tattoo Mugs in less than 10 minutes!If there’s one DIY technique I fell in love with this year, it’s working with temporary tattoos. With so many cute designs out there, it’s possibly the easiest way to add a fun design to common items, especially if you’re not an artist. Instead of hand painting mugs, and being bummed with the results, I added a temporary tattoo and was done with the project in under ten minutes. So if you are looking for the perfect last minute holiday gift– this is it! Here’s how:

Time: 10 minutes
Materials: mugs, temporary tattoos, decoupage, brush, sponge

My tattoos are from Tattly, but you can easily make your own!

Make these DIY Temporary Tattoo Mugs in less than 10 minutes!Remove the plastic film from your tattoo and place on your mug. Wet sponge and hold in place for about a minute until the tattoo is transferred. Let dry then seal with a layer or two with decoupage.

Once your decoupage is dry, your mugs are ready to use! And although Martha’s decoupage is dishwasher safe, I still recommend you treat your mugs as gentle as possible and hand wash them.

    Do you think I can use stickers instead of temporary tattoos?

    • Hmm, I haven’t tried it before so I can’t say for certain if it could withstand water (since the stickers are raised and made of paper). I think if you were to give it a try, that you should do multiple coats of decoupage. Let me know how it turns out if you give it a try!
