diy: makeup brush holder

 i probably should've done this long ago, but as always - i'm re-doing things, adding things & taking some away. today's project; my makeup brush holder. for the past few months i've accumulated plenty of makeup brushes (i had no clue i had this many) & i was keeping them in one of the small e.l.f. holders & more in another cubic glass vase thing. i went to ikea & bought this vase right here for my bamboo plants in my kitchen.. little did i know that was such a fail with 12 inch bamboo sticks & a small vase to think 3 bags of rocks would hold them up!

so here are the details.. the vase is from ikea, you can find it where the plant & floral things are. it was bout $15. here are the tiny bead-like things that i bought at a.c. moore (a local craft store here on the east coast). each bag was $9.99. silly me bought 2 bags thinking it would be too less.. i measured how many cups my vase holds & it came to 8. i tried doing some math & just stuck with 2 bags - still thinking i was risking it & i'd have to go back to get more. it was plenty. i didn't even use half of the other bag! so one of these puppies is ENOUGH!

as always; stay happy, stay healthy & remember - YOU are beautiful!
i love you all, xoxo emily.
