Think of the last time you got fro-yo. I bet it went something like this: pick your favorite flavor, or two, load the bowl as high as you possibly can without it spilling, enjoy every last bite, and throw the bowl away. But that bowl could have been used to make a makeup brush holder. Not only is this eco-friendly, it is also very useful. The next time you grab some frozen yogurt, bring your bowl home, rinse it out and get your craft on.
Scrapbook paper: one piece per bowl
A flexible ruler or measuring tape
Mod Podge and a paintbrush (tape can work if you don’t have Mod Podge)
Good luck choosing just one paper! Remember you can use any kind you want.
Measure the circumference around the bottom and top of the bowl. This is quite simple with the bendy ruler, but a measuring tape will be just fine.
Then measure the height of the bowl.
Make a pattern on scrap paper following your measurements with a slightly curved top and bottom. Try the pattern on your bowl before you cut your “fancy” paper.
Trace the pattern on the back of your good paper.
Cut out the pattern! These bedazzled scissors are from 5 Below.
Coat the bowl with a layer of Mod Podge.
Quickly roll the paper onto the bowl.
Put a little more Mod Podge on the overlap.
Press together. If you don’t have Mod Podge you can just secure the paper here with tape.
Trim the excess paper on the top and bottom so the bowl will sit flat.
I bought acrylic filler beads at Michael’s Craft Store, filled the bowls with them, and added my brushes.
Organization note: I separate my brushes into two bowls, one for eye brushes, and one for face brushes.
I hope this little project keeps your vanity tops more orgainized!
