Makeup Magnet Board

If you're like most women in America you have a lot a TON of makeup!
We all store it in different places.
Makeup bags, drawers, cabinets....
We've all experienced spills and our makeup/bushes getting dirty with loose makeup

If you're like me I hate getting makeup all over my hands and digging
around in my makeup bags.

I wish I could take credit for this because it is just so dang neat!! Sadly, I can't
but this is seriously one of the coolest, most useful craft
I've ever made! HERE is where I found my inspiration.

The Makeup Magnet Board
Pin It
What you'll need:
1. Picture frame
2. Metal sheet (get it at Lowes)
3. Hot glue
4. Scissors
5. Fabric
6. Magnets
7. Makeup brush cup
8. Metal cutting shears 

Start by removing the backing and the glass from your picture frame. You'll want to use the backing to measure and cut your metal sheet to fit into the back of your frame. You will need metal cutting shears for this part.
After you have measured and cut your metal sheets wrap it with the fabric of your choice. Make sure it is taut and secure it with hot glue.
Secure it with plenty of hot glue around all of the edges
Make sure your fabric is secure and now place it inside of your frame and replace the backing
Your frame is now done! Next, start gluing magnets to the back of your makeup. Once the makeup is all used up simply pull the magnet off and peel off the hot glue from the magnet and reuse them.
Use your additional fabric to wrap your cup. You will use this for all of your brushes, mascara, eyeliner and tweezers. Make sure you use a light cup (I used a baking powder can) and then line the back with 3 to 4 magnets. Arrange all of your makeup on your new makeup board and you're ready to hang it in your bathroom!
The finished product!! Isn't it awesome!?
 Happy crafting ya'll!

  8. @Chari - It is super convenient in the morning! My husband and I live in an apartment and we have a tiny bathroom with minimal counter space so just having one makeup item out and then turning around to get the next one really reduces the clutter!! Thanks for stopping by!

    @Jess - Thanks for following me!! I hope you come back on a regular basis. I have lots of fun crafts in store! :) Oh, and thank you, I loved my wedding dress! I wish I could wear it all the time haha...I actually thought about turning it into a cocktail dress so that I could wear it somewhere fancy on an anniversary trip or something!

  11. @Laura - I know!! I saw yours on Pinterest and loved the idea since I have such a tiny bathroom. Plus when I move to a bigger house I could decide to use it as a picture board or a note board with magnets! Thanks for sharing :)
