DIY Makeup Brush Holders

Hey beauty lovers! I'm coming at you guys with a different kind of post today. This is going to be a DIY (Do it yourself) project post. I have been bored with my makeup brushes for so long and I need new storage for them. I wish I would have taken a picture of my brush storage before but I forgot, but pretty much I had my brushes in a cup (not cool)! As some of you may know I will be moving in a couple of weeks and I get my own Makeup Room (I'm so excited!!!!!) So naturally I will have a lot more room for my makeup and can come up with different storage ideas. I have been watching a lot of YouTube videos on how to store brushes and I came up with a cute way so I wanted to share it with you all. So let me stop talking and lets get into these holders. This is what I came up with

Cute Right!!! So If you want to learn how to make your own makeup brush holder similar to this I will show you how.

Materials You Will Need: ( I purchased everything from Michael's)

*A vase or something to hold your brushes in
*Paint Brushes / Sponges
*Hot glue gun
* Sand or some kind of material to hold up your  brushes

Let's Begin:
1. Measure  the ribbon around the top edge of the vase and cut the necessary lentgh
2. Take your hot glue gun and glue the back of the ribbon and then apply to the tip of the vase
3. Take any color sand (or filler) that you want and fill the vase half way ( I used whited and pink sand by pouring them in at the same time to get the mixed effect.
4. Take any paint you would along with any brush or sponge you want. Since I wanted circle shapes I chose to get circle sponge brushes
5. Let everything dry

The finished product

Hope you enjoyed!
