Reader dyp sent me this project she made with a jar and some temporary tattoos and beads: an incense jar! You could use this technique to tattoo a vase or other kind of crockery, too! Or how about recycling a glass beverage bottle?
Method: Clean jar really well to remove finger prints and oils from skin. ( I used rubbing alcohol.) Apply tattoos just like you would to skin, go slow and smooth down the tattoos carefully. I beaded a super fast top with bells… put pebbles in the bottom to hold the incense. I buy my incense for $.95 at the local Indian Food store… smells a LOT better than the stuff at the dollar store!
- Glass Jar, $1 or on hand
- Temporary Tattoos, $1
- Pebbles, $1
- Beads & Bells, on hand
- Incense- $1
Total cost: $3 and up
That is beautiful, I would put flowers or plant a succlent in there!
Does the tattoo stay on? Or does it peel off like it does when you apply it to skin? If not, you could just get a paint brush and paint over the lines… I might do that, actually, because then you could change around the colors.
