This Easter, we are all about ditching the dye kits. Instead of buying one of the tattoo Easter egg decorating kits from the store, we used these awesome temporary tattoos from Tattly™. They are delicious smelling which helped mask some of the hard boiled egg smell. 😉
Believe it or not, these tattoos smell just like an actual herb garden. A few of their scents include Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley, and Sage. We tested the tattoos out by applying them onto both our skin and the hard boiled Easter eggs. The herb garden scents lasted for hours.
Here’s how to make your own Herb Scented Easter Eggs with temporary tattoos!
What you need:
- Hard boiled eggs (room temperature)
- Herb scented tattoos from Tattly™
- Damp paper towel
- Shallow bowl of water
Step 1 –
Boil the eggs and let them cool to room temperature.
Step 2 –
Cut out your favorite temporary tattoo shapes.
Step 3 –
Carefully dampen the tattoo back by lightly placing the back of the tattoo onto the surface of the water dish. This will allow the tattoo to wrap around the egg surface without tearing.
Step 4 –
Press the tattoo onto the surface of the Easter egg. Allow the tattoo paper to wrap around the egg and cover the surface completely. Hold the tattoo steady and do not slide it along the surface or the tattoo will tear or smear. Press against the back of the tattoo with a damp paper towel, or the included Tattly™ sponge. Hold for 30 seconds to allow the tattoo to transfer.
Step 5 –
Remove the tattoo paper from the egg and let your tattoo dry completely.
This technique can be applied to any temporary tattoos you may have at home. We fell in love with the Tattly™ herb bouquet tattoos because they are herb scented.
