One of my (and my kids) favorite places to shop for craft supplies is the dollar store. Not only is everything only $1 (or less), but the last few years they have really upped their game when it comes to the quality and cuteness of the things they carry. As I was walking through the aisles picking things up for Valentine’s Day, I found this candle holder and colorful rocks beneath and new they would a perfect addition to my otherwise dull and boring bathroom.
The inspiration for this makeup brush holder came in the middle of the night one night when I was up with Mahle, my one year old. We were watching Little Mermaid and the song “Part Of Your World” came on. If you’re not familiar with the movie, the song starts out in her little cave with her collection of things she collected from above. She sings ‘Look at this stuff. Isn’t it Neat. Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete.’ And that pretty much sums up how I feel about my mermaid makeup brushes.
They are so bright and colorful and I only paid like $5 for the set. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to use all of them because I just haven’t had anywhere to store them. So in the box they sat. But not anymore! Thanks to my dollar store supplies and my Cricut Maker they are now displayed proudly and they are easy for me to reach when I’m getting ready. Let me show you how EASY this makeup jar is to make!

Makeup Brushes (if you don’t already have them)
Essenital Tool Kit (not 100% necessary but it makes weeding and applying vinyl SO much easier)
Cut out, weed and apply transfer tape to design (this post has a great tutorial on how to easily and effectively apply, weed and apply transfer tape).
Center each design to your candle holder and firmly press down on transfer tape with the scraper tool.
Look at this project. Isn’t it neat?! I LOVE working with Holographic Vinyl because it looks different from every angle. And, I think, it really looks like a mermaid’s tail – what do you think?!
