{DIY} Recycled Makeup Holders


And I’m back! With lots of things to share!

Last week I made these recycled makeup holders. I wasn’t happy with my current makeup storage and when I used up the Duncan Hines Frosting that I bought to make a cake back in June, I came up with this idea. I also had some wallpaper samples that looked good together and were big enough to cover them. Bingo! =)



1. Measure the height and circumference of the container.

2. Cut a piece of wallpaper (or the cover-up of your choice) with that size.

3. Use double-tape to glue it safely to the container. {I used double tape because it’s easier and I had it at hand, but I do recommend it, makes the job cleaner}


Aren’t they looking nice? =)

But two weren’t enough and I also had to cover the container I was already using for my makeup brushes: a large Yankee Candle glass container. =) The only thing I done different was that the wallpaper sample wasn’t wide enough to cover the circumference so I had to glue a patch (as you can see in the photo below). But it ended up looking fine and I was happy with it.



And now the three containers are happily placed on my vanity, holding brushes, lip glosses, lip liners, eye liners, eyeshadow pencils… =) And I much happier with the makeup setup right now. Easier, more organized. And I did it myself without having to buy a single thing {I only used things I already had laying around}.


This may be a really simple DIY tutorial, but I thought of sharing it, as it may help someone =) I’ll also be sharing this on several link parties, check them out!

Have a great week! And see you tomorrow – this time with a really good high protein recipe. 😉 Curious? Come back tomorrow!

And during September 2013, it will be linked up on the Organize It Link Party!

    I love all things DIY! This organizing linky is really fun. What I love about making your own containers is that if they get messy/dirty/stained, you just make new ones. And you can make them fit any decor. The glass one reminds me of a trick I often suggest, which is filling a clear container (like yours) with glass beads or even coffee beans, and then sticking make-up brushes in to store them (brush side up.) Great ideas – thanks for sharing!

    I came from the Inspire Me Please blog party! This is a great idea! My makeup needs a better place to “live” than just the basket in my drawer.
