Spring Beauty: Make Temporary Tattoos with Dried Flowers

Temporary tattoos aren’t just for kids anymore—these days, everyone is getting in on the fun! So, if you’re ready for a decidedly grownup twist on removable body art, you’re going to love using real dried flowers to make your own gorgeous temporary tattoos.

As a lady with many real tattoos, I’ll admit that I’ve never really understood the appeal of temporary ink.

Aren’t they wonderful? I can definitely see them fitting right in for evenings out, photo shoots, or even summertime weddings!

Thing I learned from this project: Never underestimate the power of a little eyelash glue and a whole lot of imagination. No, seriously.
