Here's a fun way to take ordinary looking makeup brushes and to turn them into something unique, cute and fun. If you're at all creative, and most girls with makeup brushes tend to be, then this is going to be a lot of fun!
wooden makeup brushes
Martha Stewart craft paint
1. Sand down your brush handles. Unless the wood was already unfinished, this will help the paint to cling to the surface.
2. Paint a base coat, we chose white! Add a second coat if you need to.
3. Paint a pretty design. We chose polka dots and stripes with a messy, handmade look.
TIP: It's not pictured, but you should wrap painter's tape around the metal part holding the bristles. This will protect it from being scratched and painted on.
Pretty cool, right?! And it doesn't take a lot of time or money to create cute one-of-a-kind handmade makeup brushes. This could easily make for a great gift to a girlfriend! More cute projects abound...click here!
