Hey guys! So...I was debating whether or not to post another DIY, but this one was really fun to do and it's a little easier and more practical.  So here it is...a DIY nail polish caddy! :)


glue stick
hot glue gun (tacky glue would would fine as well)
small tray
hole puncher 
ribbon and/or fabric 
Mason jar, or other type of container/jar

(It took me about an hour and a half to make this.)

So, first i started out by painting a swatch of nail polish on the paper, and once it dried, i hole punched the colors out, and glued them to the top of each bottle.  That way, once you put them into the tray, you can see what color is which without picking each one out.  

The tray i got is from Home goods and it was only 7$.  Its from the bathroom section and it is glass so it holds the nail polish really nicely. 

So next, you're going to get your jar, and you can either leave it plain or decorate it.  I got the ribbon, and just hot glued it around the jar, and then added a bow.  You can also get some fabric and cover the lid.

Then you can fill the jar with cotton balls, or Q-tips, and you can also stick your nail polish remover on the tray so it's all there for you to use.

I hope you've enjoyed this DIY tutorial!

DIY Magnetic Makeup Board

Hey ya'll! I've been brainstorming some ideas for blog posts and I have decided to start doing (maybe once a week) a DIY section.  With that being said, for my sister's 18th birthday, i decided to make her a makeup board.  I saw the idea on pinterest, but was totally prepared for it to not come out like the picture. haha.

It was really quite easy once i was able to track down all of the needed supplies. I went to hobby lobby and got the magnetic sheet, and frame for it to go in.  While we were there i also picked up small magnets for the backs of the makeup. (The ones we got had an adhesive back so we just had to peel and stick).

The flowers in the corners I hot-glued on just for added cuteness. LOL. My mom actually found the clear containers that are holding brushes at wal-mart. (Toothpicks came in them).

 I don't know about you, but i'm super happy with the way this came out! I hope you enjoyed this post! Should I continue doing DIY's? Tell me whatcha think! :)
