DIY Makeup Brush Holder

By  | 

Time for another DIY!  This time I’m going to show you how to make a super easy (and super cute!) makeup brush holder – all for under $6, thanks to the amazingness that is Dollarama. Here’s what you’ll need:

Vase/jar ($1.25)

Vase filler ($2)

Decorative rhinestones ($2)


1.  Apply rhinestones to vase – the rhinestones that I used were self-adhesive and came in strips to make it even easier.

2. Fill vase with vase filler.

3.  Add you brushes.  That’s it!  There you have it, an easy DIY makeup brush holder.

      No problem – hope it works! I was actually just thinking I need to make another one because mine is getting way too full!

    That’s nice! Very beautyful indeed! I used a brush box for painters to keep them safe from dust. I have about 30 parrots here, and they produce really a lot of dust! 😀

    What a fabulous idea. Mine are all over the counter. I love how they stand up in the beads.
