Brush Holder

I wanted to bake some cupcakes today as it seems like its been ages since I done a post however for the second time this week my mum seems to be taking over the baking department by baking huge cakes such as Lemon Drizzle and now Ginger Cake so now there is no room for any of my cupcakes! 

Therefore I have gone down the beauty post route to share with you a little bit of DIY. To begin I am literally one of the messiest girls around especially when it comes to makeup so in a way posting this has made me clean my dressing table.. thumbs up! So.. the other day I decided to make a makeup brush holder due to the fact that my brushes are usually stored in my drawers where my makeup ( with probably no lid on ) is found.

I bought a very cheap jam jar in Sainsburys costing around £2 that seemed a suitable size. Using some double sided tape I stuck it around the top of the jar and just wrapped some plain string until it was all covered. Now for some decoration, I had one of those little wooden hanging hearts  laying around and added a little button on the top for extra detail. Using some more string I threaded it through and wrapped it back around the top and secured it with a bow.. and now for some photos! 

 Hope you like :)

  2. So cute! I recently made my own brush holders out of tin cans and also placed a heart in the middle. I love them. I hope you'll have a chance and stop by my blog. All about Beauty. Life. and DIY. If you ever have an OTD, LOTD, hair or nail tutorial, or a fun fashion DIY, I'd love for you to share it at "That's my Style" Link party every Friday. Don't have anything to share? Stop by anyway for beauty tutorial and fun DIY projects. Hope to see you there. :)

  6. I also save so many pictures of DIY projects (this being one of them) but I never get time to do it :( such a shame. Super cute idea though :) my brushes are currently stored in a tumblr glass, not quite as creative...maybe i'll stick some stickers on it for a quick jazz up!
