DIY Mason Jar Makeup Brush Holder


Being a girl, I love all things bright and shiny and that includes glitter. So when I realized I needed some sort of container to store my makeup brushes in for my dorm room, I started looking on Pinterest for ideas. After coming across the glitter mason jar DIY, I decided to give it a try. It looked girly and sparkly enough for my dorm room 🙂 I also liked the variation on the glitter mason jar that one of my Milso friends had made with the ribbon so decided to add that to my design as well.

The materials I used (minus the Mod Podge sealer and glue gun for the ribbon)

Luckily I had all of the supplies I needed to make the jar so I was able to just get to work! I covered the jar with Mod Podge and sprinkled glitter over it. It was MUCH messier than I’d anticipated and I was wishing I’d used a bigger paper plate, but in the end it turned out alright!


People had complained about the glitter falling off their finished jar so I sprayed mine with Mod Podge Super HI-Shine Clear Acrylic Sealer which is doing it’s job quite nicely! I used a glue gun to attach the ribbon and bow to the finished jar… the glue gun isn’t necessary but it sure will be nice to never have to retie the bow!

I’m really tempted to make another one of these for my desk to hold pens and pencils. They’re just so perfect and girly 🙂
