This was just a random DIY inspired by Sephora stores.
My husband has surprised me with flowers so many times over the years, I can hardly count. I would say it was at least every other month… if not every month. While moving, I had to get rid of many, many vases… most of which we donated. When it came to this vase, my husband was actually the one to tell me to keep it. He mentioned that we could use it for decor – candles maybe. With that idea, Sephora makeup tools and brush displays came to mind and I instantly wanted to head over to Michael’s. I picked up 9 bags of their glass beads (on sale for only $1 each bag!) and threw it all together 🙂 tahdah! Easy, aesthetically appealing and functional!
What you’ll need:
- 1 Vase – preferably one with a large opening like this one (8x8x8 square vase)
- Glass Beads – lots of them in any color you’d like, preferably smaller in size (9 bags filled up half a plastic grocery store bag and I thought I bought too many… clearly I didn’t… I probably could have fit 2 more bags..)
- Makeup Brushes!
What to do:
Carefully fill up your vase with your beads. I mean it when I say do it carefully – those little guys bounce all over the place! When you have your vase at lease 75% full or enough to cover up half of your brush handle, start putting your brushes in! Have fun arranging them however you’d like 😀
PS – I’m sure I’m not the first to post this tutorial but… oh well, it was fun 😉
How cute and EASY is this! OMG! Very creative, sooooooo doing it! Thanks for this idea!June 21, 2011 at 6:48 pm
