Recreate Your Old Makeup Brush Container With Decoupage!

Don’t throw out your old makeup containers! You can easily recreate them into something pretty and decorative!  Learn how to decoupage old acrylic storage containers!  I have this acrylic makeup brush container that works fab for storing my makeup brushes and indeed does a fine job. I didn’t want to throw it out so I thought I would try a simple solution. Problem was, it showed every finger print and nasty makeup smudge so easily. I found myself cleaning it almost every day.

This was my old acrylic makeup case.

As you can see, this brush holder was so yucky! Every time I touched it – bam – fingerprints!

Be sure to clean it with some type of cleaner. I used alcohol.

I measure my paper and was sure to overlap to tuck inside.

Then, brush one light coat of Mod Podge.

 Be sure to smooth out any air bubbles.

When you have completed that last step –  use 1-2 coats of Mod Podge to seal and protect. You can use a matte finish or glossy.
