The party problem: You don't want to buy cheesy party supplies, but you wouldn't mind doing something to make your football-viewing bash a little more festive.

The party trick: Dress up regular drinking glasses with a few temporary tattoos.

Tattoo Your Glass for the Big Game: Watch the Video

Believe it or not, temporary tattoos stick to glass almost as well as they stick to your skin. Because glass is a lot smoother than skin, though, we recommend just one small adjustment when you're putting the tattoo on.

Put the tattoo on the glass where you want it (it's not super easy to reposition it, so make sure you're extra careful with this step!) and then use a moist sponge or paper towel to wet the entire area. Then, and here's where the application is a little different, let the tattoo dry for a few minutes before you peel off the backing. Peel it off carefully and let the tattoos fully dry before the party. Then, everyone can use a football-themed cup that's not something cheesy (or wasteful) from a party supply store.

After the final play, just wash the glasses with warm, soapy water and the tattoos will come off. This way, you'll be able to use your glasses again for non-football-themed occasions, which is obviously a key point.

Just make sure you get extra tattoos if kids are attending your party, because you know they're gonna want one (or seven) for their arms, hands, etc.
