Makeup brushes have always seemed a little intimidating. Not being a makeup expert, I worry I’ll use the wrong one and wind up looking like a clown. You mean you shouldn’t put on eye shadow with the biggest brush you have? Exactly.
So if you know a mom in serious need of a new set of makeup brushes – or one who needs 10 minutes to rummage through several drawers to locate them for a photo (ahem) – this leather brush holder is the perfect handmade gift.
Wouldn’t you love this with a new set of brushes? Or am I guilty of giving gifts that only appeal to me? Because I hate when people do that! You know, give a gift that’s obviously something they wanted. Why, yes, honey, a new remote control was at the top of my list!
- Scrap of leather or suede. Mine was about 12-inches long and 8.5-inches wide.
- Piece of leather cord
- Exacto knife
Find the center at one end of the leather and make a tiny hole. Knot one end of the leather cord and pull it through.
Measure 2 inches past the cord knot and 3 inches down from the top of the leather. Cut a small slit with the Exacto. Cut another small slit 2 inches in and 5 inches down.
Continue cutting small slits on top of each other down the leather, leaving a small space between each one, until you have spots for 7-8 brushes.
When you’re done cutting, grab your brushes (or buy a new, shiny set!) and insert them to make sure the holes fit. Enlarge the opening if needed.
Insert the brushes, roll up the leather and wrap with the cord. Gift to someone you love or use for yourself!
This makeup brush holder is also great for traveling – and so are these 25 DIY projects!

Amazing idea! Where did you purchase the piece of leather?
Great tutorial. And don’t you just love the Naked 2 palette?
What i don’t understood is actually how you are now not actually much more
neatly-appreciated than you might be now. You’re very intelligent.
You understand thus considerably with regards to this matter, produced me personally
imagine it from so many various angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga!
Your individual stuffs excellent. Always care for it up!

I think that everything published made a great deal of sense.
But, what about this? what if you composed
a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to
run your website, but what if you added something that
makes people desire more? I mean DIY Leather Makeup Brush
Holder | Hello Glow is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
You might try adding a video or a pic or two to
grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.
Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
