10 Craft Ideas To Do With Tattoo Coloring Pages

Maybe you won’t let your children get tattoos, but they can color them!

Here are some terrific crafts to do with all those finished pages.

1. Designer Shoes

If your child or teenager wears any kind of shoes made from rubber or plastic, like crocs or beach shoes, they can really dress them up with tattoo coloring pages.

When the page is finished, carefully cut out the design and seal it on both sides in contact paper.

Then, using rubber cement or craft glue, decorate the shoes decal-style and add one layer of acrylic spray to keep them nice. 

Your youngsters will have the fanciest issues in town!

2. Tattoo Suncatcher

Tattoo coloring pages are perfect for making suncatcher-style hanging ornaments. The more intricate pages are perfect for this.

They should be colored in as many different shades as possible, the brighter, the better.

Before cutting the tattoo out, the youngster can take a thin black marker and outline various parts of the pattern to make different areas stand out.

Punch a hole at the top, and use a thick piece of colorful yarn to hang this unique ornament in a doorway, window, or anywhere you’d like a pop of color.

3. Decorate a Ball

If your youngster has an old football, basketball, or similar object, cutouts from tattoo coloring pages are ideal for making it unique and original.

Soccer balls are particularly fun since a different cutout can be added to each octagon around the ball. 

Youngsters can create a pattern or use one cutout as a centerpiece and decorate the remaining space with tiny pieces cut from other coloring pages. 

The fun part is that there are no rules; the sky’s the limit with this creative craft.

4. Create a Colorful Book Cover

Begin this craft by using a simple template and an ordinary brown grocery bag to create a book cover.

Then, use cutouts from the finished coloring pages to decorate both the front and the back.

Use a bright marker or colorful yarn to create a border around each cover, or get extra fancy and decorate the areas around the cutouts with sequins, craft gems, or pompoms.

5. Tattoo Origami

Origami doesn’t always have to be complicated. There are simple patterns youngsters can follow to create anything, from an airplane to an animal.

Because tattoo coloring page items are typically intricate, they lend themselves well to such crafts.

When finished, use tiny dots of glue at the base of the craft to anchor it to a square of cardboard wrapped in tissue paper for an original knickknack!

6. Tattoo “Cocktail” Glasses

If your youngsters like to have green beer ( Kool-Aid) on St. Patrick’s Day or a Christmas cocktail (eggnog) in “Grown-up glasses,” let them make some fancy glasses of their own!

Give the child a set of wine or cocktail glasses, which can be glass or plastic, depending on the youngster’s age.

Using cutouts from the finished coloring pages, let the child decorate the glasses in any desired pattern using invisible glue.

Seal the work with several coats of acrylic spray for adorable keepsakes they can use or simply display.

7. Make a Cute Kaleidoscope

This craft is perfect if your child has colored an intricately designed tattoo and wants to preserve it. Carefully cut the item out, and seal it in glassine or contact paper.

Next, take an empty wrapping paper cardboard, and using a small ring of glue around its end, attach the cutout to the roll, with the colored part facing in.

When the youngster holds the roll up to the light, he or she will see the pattern. For extra fun, laminate the outside of the roll with other cutouts from additional pages.

8. Create a Difficult Puzzle

This craft is a great classroom activity, and youngsters can challenge themselves to make it difficult.

Once their tattoo coloring pages are finished, they should glue them to thin cardboard and trace puzzle pieces onto the page with a thin black marker.

The goal is to make similarly shaped pieces, to make the puzzles as difficult as possible.

Then, have them trade with other children and see who’ll be the first one to put together another child’s puzzle.

9. Make Modern Art

This craft is great for older children who want to create art that’s a bit more sophisticated. Have the youngster color the tattoo in black-and-white or another 2-color pattern.

Then, when the page is reinforced with cardboard, cut the item out and punch 3 to 4 holes in the bottom using an ordinary hole punch.

Using embroidery thread or ordinary string, the child can thread buttons, beads, or any other item to make a wind chime-type fringe in similar colors.

Hang this sophisticated modern art anywhere!

10. Make an Original Bracelet

It’s easy to make a cuff bracelet with a tattoo coloring page, and it begins with cutting the end from an empty wrapping paper cardboard.

Slice one side completely through so that it can be pulled apart and placed around the child’s wrist.

Laminate it with cutouts from the tattoo coloring pages, and use contact paper to seal the artwork carefully.

Make one or one for every day of the week!
