DIY Brush Holder.

Ever found yourself wondering where all your brushes should live? I have a set that stays in the brush roll but I also have a lot of individual brushes that until now, I had no idea what to do with them. For a little while, they lived together in a cute little clutch bag but I know that isn't exactly the best way to get the most life of out them if they are all poking each other's bristles constantly haha.
So I went searching for some ideas on youtube and found one very common idea in majority of the videos and I thought I would give it a go.

So here is my at a DIY Brush Holder =)

Items you will need:
* A jar, little cardboard box, cup etc.
* Ribbon
* Beads, or coloured sand. I have seen some people use bath salts but it ends up being very bad for the brushes.
* Trusty Ol' Glue Gun

Ok so I used a cute little cardboard cylinder box that my Miss Chi Chi by Chi Chi Cosmetics came it. You can use anything really that is deep enough to fill with beads/coloured sand (it doesn't have to be coloured but colour is so much more fun!).


Excuse the terrible photos but here is the end product. 


I used my glue gun to glue the pastel pink ribbon around the very top just to 
break up all the white at the top of the box.


In goes the beads. These were just ones I had around the house, you can
use whatever colour/type you want =)


A very "artsy" shot of the box and beads - hahaha!


Once you have added the beads, you just stick your brushes in.
The beads help the brushes stand upright instead of being lent over against each other and 
possibly poking the bristles of other brushes.


Tada! So easy, and you probably have all the stuff you need
in your house already!

There we have it, a very cute and fun DIY project for your brushes =)
Glue guns and beads,
