So, this project has been a LONG time coming. I alluded to it when I showed you how to remove candle wax from jars and then last week, when I posted the DIY glitter makeup trays, I said I’d share this project with you.

This project has been done for months. Other stuff just kept coming up I wanted to blog about first, so this project just hung out in my finished pictures folder, ready and waiting for me to write.

But that’s just how I roll. I get all motivated and whip out five DIY projects, take the pics and then upload them to the computer. Then I get lazy and serial watch some tv show on Netflix. Then eventually I get around to editing. And then one day, I finally write the post.

So needless to say, I’ve been using these makeup brush holders for awhile and they’ve held up very well! I’m pretty happy with them.

I freaking love these makup brush holders. Between these and my glitter makeup trays, my  bathroom is so sparkly and pretty! It makes me happy when I walk in the room and see them. They motivate me to get dressed in more than just a t-shirt and sweats.

As always, if you make this project, be sure to share it on instagram or twitter with the hash tag #doseofDIY and/or tag @adoseofpaige! I’d love to see your versions!


Now, what about the supplies?


  • Candle jars. Use this post to see how to recycle old candle jars!
  • Painter’s tape or masking tape
  • mod podge
  • glitter
  • paint brush

First, tape off what you want to add glitter to like shown below.


Then coat the part you want to apply glitter to with mod podge.


Then sprinkle glitter on it, making sure to coat the area completely.


I did the same thing on my second candle jar, but I just taped off a different area.


Then just repeat the steps.


Once the mod podge dries, it’s time to remove the tape!


And you’re done! To get rid of the excess glitter, I just take it outside and run my fingers lightly over the area with glitter to knock off the loose glitter. Then you can fill it with your makeup brushes and whatever else your heart desires!


And now, I’ve got a pretty dang sparkly bathroom and that makes me pretty happy.

Eek! Super Excited for the Sims 4 Launch


This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TheSims4 #CollectiveBias So I have a bit of a confession to make. I've pretty much loved Sims for as long as I can remember. I remember sitting at my great grandmother’s apartment in Gulfport, MS teaching her how to play Sims City with my brother. Then when Sims 1 came out, I remember my cousin Brent (who died a few years ago) showing me the game and I instantly fell in love with the … [Continue reading...]
