Glittery Mason Jar Makeup Brush Holder

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is already 2018? What better way to start off the new year than with an organization project? I love to use mason jars in my home decor and DIY projects! They come in many sizes and can be used in so many ways. Today, I am sharing how I re-purposed mason jars into decorative holders for my makeup brushes.

I used chalkboard paint and glitter vinyl to re-purpose mason jars into decorative holders for my makeup brushes.

I used the Cricut Design Space to make the design for my jar. I used the Jar Template for placement, which really helped me determine the sizing. I wanted to use eyelashes and surprisingly, I had a hard time finding a free image, but I ended up using the ones from this Unicorn Backpack Design.

Next, I cut the eyelashes and word "Brushes" out of blue glitter vinyl. I then applied the vinyl to the jar. I tried to use transfer tape, but the glitter would not stick to it, so ultimately I just used my fingers to place it on the jar.

Small Chalkboard Jar


First, I taped off the top of the jar with painters tape and used Rust-Oleum Metallic silver spray paint to paint the bottom third of the jar.

Once that was completely dry, I taped off the entire jar, just leaving the smooth label area on the front exposed. I used Rust-Oleum Chalkboard paint to spray 2 light coats on the exposed area and allowed it to dry completely.

When I removed the tape, my painted circle was not perfect, so I scraped a little of the paint off to clean up the edges.
