How to Create a DIY Makeup Brush Holder from an Old Candle Jar

The new year means getting organized, and for me, that means going through each and every room in my house and purging all the old crap and organizing what’s leftover. (Or maybe that’s just my nesting instinct kicking in haha). Regardless, one of the first places I tackled was our master bathroom, and consequently, all my makeup supplies. My makeup brushes were getting smooshed and dirty just rolling around in a drawer, so I decided to make a stylish makeup brush holder to get them organized and keep them looking pretty!

The great thing about this project is that it is SO super easy, takes only a few minutes, AND helps you reuse old candle jars that you would otherwise have no use for. You know, those big Bath and Body Works candles" I can’t resist buying at least 2-3 each season every year and once the wax has burned down, I like to reuse the jars to help out the environment, and just because I’m frugal like that haha. Don’t know how to get that last little bit of was out of the jar" Check out my tutorial for removing wax and cleaning candle jars HERE! Follow along below for this incredibly easy and beautiful tutorial!
DIY Makeup Brush Holder Materials

Old candle jar (check out my tutorial for removing wax from old jars HERE!)
Mod Podge
Paint brush
Glitter in your color of choice
Poly Pellets

Step 1

Mix up your Mod Podge by gently stirring with your brush – you don’t want to shake it or else you could get air bubbles! Using the same brush, add thin, even layer of Mod Podge to the inside of your candle jar. You want to do it on the inside so that the outside of the jar has that nice glassy finish and so that the glitter doesn’t shed everywhere anytime you move it Step 2

Pour in a hefty amount of glitter in the color of your choice. If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll know that gold glitter is always my go-to for just about anything I like using the Martha Stewart fine glitter because it’s really subtle and classy, but you can use chunkier glitter too if you’d like for a different look!

Now the key is to get the entire jar coated with glitter before the Mod Podge dries. I found the most effective way to do this was to put the candle jar lid back on and just shake it all around so that the glitter adhered to the whole surface evenly. Once dry, go back over any spotty areas with a little bit more Mod Podge and glitter
*I tried to speed up this process by using my hair dryer to get the Mod Podge dry quicker – BIG mistake. Glitter flew everywhere! haha*
Step 3

Now, to get your makeup brushes to stand up in your beautiful new makeup brush holder, you need to fill it. I like using Poly Pellets, which are usually used for adding weight to stuffed animals and the like. However, I’ve seen places like Sephora use these exact pellets in their displays so if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me Just pour some until ...
