Last year I was diagnosed with depression, even though I have been dealing with it much longer than that. When I am feeling good and in a good place, there are two thing’s you will see me focusing on:
Crafting and Makeup.
And when I need a pick me up I either make something pretty or I make myself pretty. (Well, prettier.)
After a few years of focusing on being a mommy and being depressed and not focusing on myself, I finally fell back in love with makeup. (And crafting.)
Since I starting buying new makeup and trying the new trends (Hello Highlighter,) I needed to create some space for it all.
Even though I haven’t finished my little make up area (a couple more projects to do,) these turned out so cute I had to share!
So here’s the deal, we are on a tight budget so I am often looking at the dollar stores in my area for craft supplies and inspiration. When I decided I was going to DIY my makeup area I knew it would be where I was going.
I have seen the glass holders at the Dollar Tree many times in the past, so I knew I would be using those, but I wasn’t sure what else I would use. After some digging in the ribbon isle I found the sequin ribbon and knew what I was going to do.
I have found the mini bottles of Mod Podge at the Dollar Tree in the past, but not very often. But you can find them at Target or at Michael’s.
For these DIY makeup holders I used:
Two spool’s of the sequin ribbon for each holder.
Two glass holders
A little confession, I guess you can call it that. I already had the mod podge before I started this project and I had originally bought spray adhesive from the dollar tree to use for this. It didn’t work, so I busted out the mod podge.
But, the small can worked perfectly to make wrapping the sequin ribbon around the glass holder. (I really don’t know what else to call the glass “holders” a vase maybe?) I suggest using something similar. (Edit: I’m pretty sure these are supposed to be candle holders.)
Basicially all I did was paint on mod podge using a sponge brush and then wrapped the ribbon around as I spun the glass holder. I suggest going slow and every few rows use your sponge brush to push the rows together.
Make sure to add a layer of the Mod Podge over the finished product. When using a sponge brush make sure to dab instead of using painting motions. That way the ribbon stays where you want it.
You can find that sequin ribbon at the dollar store or at any craft store. (Michael’s and Hobby Lobby are my happy places.) The ribbon comes in so many colors, you can make these to match your room or bathroom décor!
The all pink one I made first and is definitely the least perfect of the two, but the imperfections is what I like about it. It was a trial run and yet it turned out so cute I decided to use the pictures for the blog post and of course for my makeup brushes.
The best part about this project was the cost.
I spent $4 on the ribbon and $2 on the holders. The cost of the small Mod Podge was a dollar, which brings the cost of the project to a total of $7 plus CA tax. Less than eight dollars.
If you were inspired by these pretty DIY makeup brushes than head to the dollar store! But first leave a comment, tell me what colors you are making these into! Cant wait to hear your ideas.
