Saw It, Pinned It, Did It: Makeup Brush Holder DIY

Before I get to SPD, I wanna mention I'm guest posting at Sheree's blog, The Hartungs! Go check it out!

This is my first Saw It, Pinned It, Did It link up and I’m sooo excited! I’ve had a LOT of projects pinned that I’ve been meaning to do and this is my perfect excuse!

Today’s project is one I’m sure everyyyyyone has seen. There are tons of variations of it.

So I went to Michaels and the dollar store and picked up this shit

You just hot glue the vase/cup/thing to the candle stick and add the stones!

2. hot glue the top of the candle stick

3. place the cup/vase on the candle stick and press down

4. pour you stones (or any other filler you chose) into the cup
