Make It Monday: Vintage Glamour Makeup Brushes

It’s a new week, and that means it’s time to try a new craft project. I love craft projects that you can use. The other day I happened to notice how bland my makeup brushes were. I wondered what I could to do to jazz them up? Luckily I did not have to look to far for a unique idea. Kindra Boroff created these Vintage Glamour Makeup Brushes, that I absolutely adore. This is a perfect craft for all skill levels, that will take about an hour to create. You are sure to be the envy of your girlfriends, once they see these incredible makeup brushes.

Instructions

  1. Measure 1” from the tip of the brush handle and tape off. Paint the tip of the handle with Licorice. When dry paint a few coats of Black glitter as shown.
  2. Cut the fabric to fit the remaining section of the handle. Mod Podge the fabric to the brush handle. Allow to dry.
  3. Cut the red ribbon the wrap around the handle where the painted section and the fabric meet. Glue with fabric glue. Attach a small rhinestone to the ribbon as shown with fabric glue.

  1. These are adorable! Thought about doing something like this to wooden kitchen utensils and polymer clay.
    The fabric thing is much easier on make-up brushes.

  2. WOW! These brushes look good! Do Kindra Boroff’s brushes shed?

    I’ll try your trick with my makeup brushes if I find time.

    Thanks for the jazz up tips!
