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. what a great idea!!! why didn't i think of it before!! It would definitely solve the mess on my bathroom counter! :) I just stumbled upon your blog from "the girl creative!" and i'm so glad I did, because i'm hooked!!! I am your newest follower!!! BTW...your wedding dress is gorgeous!!!!!!

  9. @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!

  44. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
