Makeup Holder Ideas
My dressing table can get really messy so I wanted to look into ways of organising all of my makeup brushes, nail art tools and eye-liners. I like the acrylic cosmetic holders you can buy and reviewed the nail polish acrylic holders here as it was such a great buy and just the right storage for my nail polishes. For my brushes I wanted something a bit prettier and more personal as they will be going on my dressing table. I looked on Pinterest at different DIY Makeup holder ideas and decided I was going to decorate different sized jam jars to create the holders.
I found different expressions and typography I liked online and copied the phrase onto the clean jam jars with a Sharpie. I then used the Pebeo Vitrea 160 Transparent Outliner to draw over the Sharpie outline to raise the text from the Jam Jar. I initially tried going over the writing with a Glue Gun but it was so much harder, inaccurate and looked messier. The Pebeo Vitrea 160 Transparent Outliner was a little fiddly but gave good even results and was quick to apply. I left the Pebeo Vitrea 160 Transparent Outliner to dry for 24 hours and then put in the oven for 40 minutes at 160 degrees.
I went to B&Q and bought 4 matt paint tester pots in Value Green, Value Blue, Colours Soft Black, Colours Marshmallow. I also bought a cheap Paint Brush and a Coarse Sanding Sponge. I painted the insides of my jam jars in Soft Black left for an hour and applied a second coat. I then painted the outside of the embossed jam jars all over with 2 coats of the coloured matt paints.
Once dry I used the Coarse Sanding Sponge over the writing to remove the paint and let the Pebeo Vitrea 160 Transparent Outliner layer show through. I also sanded in different areas of the jam jars gently to make them distressed. I neatened up the top of the jar by using a Glue Gun to stick on the Rustic Twine, wrapping the Twine around and then giving it a bow at the front.
