DIY Makeup Brush Holder

Saturday, 30 July 2016

If you need somewhere to storage your makeup brushes, then this DIY makeup brush holder is the best way to organise them. To make a DIY makeup brush holder you can either use, a jar this can be a jam jar or any type of jar you have, a pringles box, a can this can be a soup can or beans can or even a glass. Use anything you like and before making it test it out whether you will like it or not by placing your brushes in them.

For this tutorial, I will be using a Pringles Box.

You can get pringle boxes in a small size or a large size, don't worry if you don't have a small box you can always use the large can and cut it carefully using a blade to make it smaller, and that's exactly what I did.

For this DIY you will need:
-pringles box
-paper of your choice to wrap around
-scissors
-blade
-sellotape
-superglue
-decorations of your choice


1. First, cut the pringles box in half, you can do this by using the blade, but be careful with it and start cutting at a halfway point on the box and cut around making it smaller until you get the size you want. If you already have the small box you don't need to do this step.

2. Secondly, get your paper this can be wrapping paper, coloured paper or any type that you want to use, I use gold reflective paper. Start off by making sure you are using the right amount it is best to use a bit more because that can always be cut off or hidden, start with one side of the paper on the box and sellotape that on securely. Then get the other side of the paper and tightly wrap it all the way round, you don't want it to be loose, so make sure you can do it tightly as possible, and it will be best to secure that down with super glue so you can't see any sellotape on the box.

3. There should be paper left at the top it will be good to have some left so you can hide the c circumference of the box, to tuck that inside cut down at four sides and apply glue to the inside and then fold it inside the box.


4. This is the fun part, now you can decorate your box, I used silver glitter foam at the bottom of the box and added a yellow crown foam sticker. I had lots more like sequins and gems but I preferred mine to look nice and simple.


Then that's all done, you have a perfect makeup brush holder.

To create volume in the box or to make the brushes stand up higher you can add some beads, marbles, rice or coffee beans. You can organise them by labelling them face makeup brushes and eye makeup brushes. It's affordable and you can design it the way you like it.

I hope you enjoyed this DIY makeup brush holder, and I will definitely be making more and next time I will be using an acrylic clear vase and adding marbles and beads, a bit like this image.
