DIY Boho Ring Dish - Make your own boho decor with temporary tattoos and your own artwork!

Well hello, friends! It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? I’ve been pretty busy with developing my Society6 shop and managing the kids’ school schedules. I hope you are well – I’ve missed you! I’m back with this fun temporary tattoo tutorial for you which will show you how to make your own Abstract Face Ring Dish. I love all things boho and art related so here is a project that combines both to add to your modern home decor.

About My Favorite Temporary Tattoo Paper:

If you’ve been around here, you will know that I use Printable Temporary Tattoo Paper for many of my projects and tutorials.

You can make temporary tattoos with Silhouette America’s Temporary Tattoo Paper. There are so many ways to use this medium. When you use temporary tattoos the traditional way (by applying it to your skin), they are perfect favors for kids’ and adults’ parties and even sporting events. What’s even more fantastic about these temporary tattoos is that you can apply them to smooth surfaces like ring dishes! Your abstract face artwork can be applied easily with water and a wet cloth or sponge.

Silhouette America is the brand I use and they make a range of temporary tattoo paper options:

  1. Clear
  2. Gold
  3. Silver
  4. White

For today’s project, we will use the clear sheets. Why? Because all the white parts of the images will appear clear when applied to your ring dish.

Download your abstract face

Download your abstract face image to your computer so that you can open it in your graphic editing software.

Open your abstract image

  1. Open your image in Silhouette Studio or any graphic software you have
  2. Mirror your image so that it is reversed. When printed on temporary tattoo paper and applied to your ring dish, it will appear the correct way
  3. Resize the image so that it will fit on your ring dish
  4. Replicate and place your images in the printable area of your software if you are making more than one dish
Open and Edit Abstract Image in Silhouette Studio or other graphic software

Send Your Abstract Images to Print on Temporary Tattoo Paper

  1. Load your temporary tattoo paper into your printer, making sure that the images will print on the glossy side. I recommend using the highest quality print settings or photo paper settings
  2. Send to print
  3. Once printed, let the ink dry

Prepare the Temporary Tattoos for your Ring Dish

  1. Apply the clear adhesive sheet (with the green backing) to the top of the sheet you just printed with your jungle images
  2. Use the scraper to smooth out any bubbles and rub the adhesive to the images

Apply Your Abstract Face Image to your Ring Dish

  1. Use your scissors to cut out the abstract face images, staying very close to each image’s edges
  2. Peel off the clear adhesive layer
  3. Apply the abstract face image down on your ring dish and cover with a wet cloth or sponge for 10-15 seconds until the white paper backing slides off easily
Use temporary tattoos for making your own Abstract Face Ring Dish
