DIY: Make up Brush Holder

Easy and inexpensive make-up brush holder as seen on juicystar07's videos.

Over a year ago, I got really into Blair's videos. I loved how she totally loves the color pink. The first ever juicystar07 video that I saw was her room tour. I adored her big and pink room and at that time, I wished I had a room like her. :)

Blair and her sister has an online shop that their mom manages. It's called glitzy glam. They sell super cute things and one of those is this super girly make-up brush holder.

For each make-up brush holder, they charge $15-$22 dollars each and that excludes shipping fee!

So, if you've also seen that holder and been wanting to purchase but having second thoughts because of the price, then this tutorial is for you!

What you'll need:

A jar
I got mine from a department store near my place. (Trinoma Dept. store for readers who are from the PH.) I got it for only Php89 or about $2.
You could check out local hobby shops or office and school supply stores near you.
If you can't find one, then go ahead and use a wide glass or a used jar.

Pebbles/ stones/ beads
I got mine from a department store,too. (SM Dept. store for PH readers.)
I got it for Php59.75 or more than $1.
I suggest using a smaller beads/ pebbles than bigger stones because they tend to make the brush handle stuck.


Glue gun

Colors are optional. You can go ahead and use colors that suit your taste.

Optional. The make-up brush holder will still look glam with or without it. :)

And now let's learn how to do it:

And you're done!

It's very simple and the materials are inexpensive.
All in all, I think I only spent about Php200 or about $4 for this.

Go ahead and make one for your vanity,too!

Comment below and let me know what you think.

Until next time!
