Metallic temporary tattoos are soooo yesterday. That gold lightening bolt you wore on your arm to Coachella has gotta go. The new trend is dried flower tattoos. Perfect for Fall and into Spring, they’re one DIY project we think even we could manage.

What you’ll need:

  • An assortment of flowers
  • Eyelash glue
  • 2 plates
  • Paper towel
  • A microwave


How to do it:

To dry the flowers:

  1. First, you’ll need to pick the flowers from the stems and dry them
  2. Lay your flowers out ‘open side down’ on a paper-towel-lined plate
  3. Cover with another paper towel and stack another plate on top
  4. Pop it all in the microwave for about 30-seconds
  5. Carefully remove them from the paper towel immediately after microwaving (you can use tweezers if you like) and place right-side-up on another paper towel
To adhere the flowers:
  1. Plan a flower pattern with your buds
  2. Spread eyelash glue on the area you want to place a flower (work with one large bud at a time so the glue doesn’t dry up) and apply
  3. If the edges are not totally secure, use the eyelash glue like Mod Podge to ‘decoupage’ it onto your skin
  4. (Optional) Seal the entire design with hairspray when you’re finished
To remove, try olive oil or baby oil to loosen them up since that eyelash glue will hold them tight. Happy tattooing!
