Simple DIY Makeup Brush Storage

If you have a vase that you don’t use and need a storage for makeup brushes then you can turn it into it. Of course you can also get some cheap vase from IKEA if all your vases are ment for flowers. The makeup brush organizer you’ll get is a perfect display for them and for tools. The idea is to fill 75% of the vase with glass beads of any color you’d like. They are very cheap but the organizer you’d get will be quite aesthetically appealing and functional.

    Thanks for this great idea! I’m going to use the Ikea vase (I think you may have shown) with pink crystals on top of my vanity in my dressing room!

    After seeing your pic, I made this, but with whole coffee beans and a layer of beads on top. I love it and it keeps my makeup area smelling yummy!

  6. GIa Says:

    I love this. I went out and bought my vase from Michaels and instead of using glass beads I used water gems :)

    I just bought some clear glass “pebbles” at Bed, Bath & Beyond on sale for $2.99/bag and then found some silver “sand” at Walmart for $3.00/bag yesterday. I would’ve preferred pink and white or silver, but I I was already at the stores where I found these. Anyway… I had several empty and cleaned out glass candle containers from Bath & Body Works (they are the perfect size and the label comes off easily with a tiny bit of Goo-Gone). I love them!! Just wanted to put it out there that it’s possible to use empty candle containers instead of buying even the cheapest vases, if you have them. Thanks for the great post!!

    Any suggestion to keep brushes from getting all the dust in the air?

    To save money thrift stores and dollar stores often have these items at a fraction of the cost
