DIY Makeup Brush Holders!

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you this fun and easy craft to organize your makeup brushes! I decided to make these on a whim after becoming annoyed by how cluttered my previous brush set up was. These new holders make it so much easier to organize and find my brushes. If you want to learn how to make these, keep reading!

The first thing you are going to need to do is visit the craft store and pick up candle holders or jars (with out the lids) that will fit the size of your brushes. I opted for two tall jars and one short. You will also need some type of decorative beading to go in your jar. I suggest getting beads that match your style-so make it fun!

Next, you will need to pour the beads into each of the jars.

After you have all your beads poured, you can start putting in your brushes!

Now you have super cute (and easy!) makeup brush holders. I love these because they are so customizable and work great for displaying brushes!

Hello Everyone!

It has been awhile since I last posted but I am back and ready for a year filled with blogging! Right now, I plan on posting amazing, Kelly-filled content each week on Friday. As most of you probably know, back to school season has begun and all of us kiddos still in school must return back to our dull lives as the summer comes to a close. But that’s ok; because I happen to love school-sort of. I hated school when I actually went to “school school” aka private school/public school. Now I go to an “umbrella school” or “homeschooling school” which basically means I attend classes twice a week at school (yes it is in an actual building not my bed) and the rest of the week I do my schooling at home. I started homeschooling/umbrella school in 10th grade and I would never go back. “School school” just wasn’t my thing. I hated feeling trapped in a building for 7+ hours, doing busywork, and having to wake up so early that I couldn’t function. Well all that has changed now. I’m in control of when I wake up, what assignments I do first, where to do them (Starbucks is a personal fav), and homeschooling cuts out the busy work…to be honest.

This post ended up being more about the type of schooling I do vs my first day of school but whatevs. I assure you I had a great first day and I wont bore you with the overly-exciting details of my statistics class. Anywhos, did any of you start your first day of school, work, idk? If yes, let me know in the comments I’d love to chat!

Who’s hype for fall?!?
