You're dying to decorate ornaments with your little ones. But paint is way too messy and permanent markers are too, well, permanent. Enter temporary tattoos: A brilliant new way to transform ornaments from basic to beautiful without turning your house upside down.

Step 1: Gather some plain ornaments and temporary tattoos. We chose pretty gold designs from Tattly, but leftover Spiderman ones will do just fine as well.

Step 2: Carefully trim the excess paper around the design.

Step 3: Choose where on the ornament you’d like the design to appear.

Step 4: Apply a damp sponge to the back of the temporary tattoo. Hold the design in place for approximately 30 seconds.

Step 5: Slowly slide off the backing paper. And there you have it!
