Arts n' farts

My latest DIY project!

Until recently I have been using an old glass vase to keep all my brushes in on my vanity.
All of my small brushes kept getting lost in there though.
Instead of buying a new holder, I scrounged around in the basement and this is what I came up with.

After I cleaned the jars and dried them, I watered down a little acrylic paint and poured it inside.
I swirled it around and made so all of the glass was coated.
Then I set them upside down on newspaper to drip any access out and begin to set.
After an hour, I turned them up right and let them dry completely, about 24 hours.

To dress them up and match them to my bedroom decor, I added some burlap string and hung glass crystals on it.

Then I set both jars on a vintage glass punch cup tray.
Both jars fit perfect on there and I have a little extra space to toss bobby pins and rings too!
