The past month or so,
I have been going crazy with Pinterest projects.
I made several Christmas gifts, New Year crafts,
and tried other clever suggestions from the creative site.
If you remember my post from around Thanksgiving,
then you know that my Pinterest projects do not always go as planned.
In fact, I have not been able to eat Greek Yogurt with honey since that last fiasco.
Maybe it is because I now associate it with chunky, honey scented gunk plastered onto my face...
My luck with Pinterest projects has been looking up since then, thankfully.
Today, I wanted to share the make-up brush holder that I made for both myself and as
a gift for my best friend, Kacie.
I must admit,
I actually discovered this project on YouTube before seeing it on Pinterest.
Sooo....this may not be a true "Saw it. Pinned it. Did it" post.
I am a bit obsessed with the YouTube beauty videos and blogs from
Ingrid aka MissGlamorazzi,
which is where I first discovered this idea.
I started with a burned-out candle.
This particular one was from the Walmart candle section.
Then, I followed the Modge Podge steps with some glitter
that I also purchased in the Walmart craft section.
After allowing the holder to dry a couple days,
I shook out any loose glitter into the trash can.
Then I filled the holder about half full with decorative filler.
I found my purple filler in the wedding decor section of Hobby Lobby.
(I could live in that store and Target and be one happy young lady.)
For the holder I made for myself,
I filled it with my brushes.
However, for the gift for Kacie,
I purchased some brushes from the Elf line at Target.
I have always had great luck with these brushes in the past
and to top it all off, they are quite affordable.
I have been using it for over a month
and I love the style and organizational aspects it brings to the area.
