DIY Brush Holder: Nail Varnished

I go through candles quite fast, really fast!

I’m obssesive about always having a candle burning in the bathroom when I’m at home so as you can imagine I have quite a few candle jars, but so far I haven’t thrown away a single one because I have found so many uses for them.

Today I wanted to show you what I do to the candle jars I use for my makeup brushes. This one will be the first of a series of candle jar decorations but for the moment I’m going to start off with this simple one.

What I used:

  • Latex
  • Nail Varnish
  • Candle Jar
  • Nail Dotting Tools

These are really easy to do, and what I like about it is you can be quite messy (as demontrated by the one on the right) and it still looks fun and interesting.

I got the idea for this one after reading MakeUpSavvy’s blog post about how she decorated her candle jars, i figured if it looks good on the inside of the jar how will it look on the outside? :)

Hope you enjoy the tutorial :)
