If you are like me, you probably feel like you can't get enough brushes. Half of my mornings used to be spent sifting through my makeup bag looking for that one brush I had to use for that one portion of my eyelid or face. It got to be too time consuming for me, so I decided to instead just display it all out in a unique way so that I would not have to waste my mornings again.
The solution was to stick my brushes in a planter! Just kidding, but you kind of get the concept, right? Now, if I need to find any brush, I have them all out and ready for me to grab. How did I make this you ask? See the steps below!
STEP #1: BUY COLORED SAND
I went to my local Michael's store and found this finely ground decorative sand. They came in different colors, but since they didn't have hot pink, I decided to go with a classic black color. You can't go wrong with black! I loved the way the black would sort of sparkle in the light. This 2 pound bag of sand cost less than $5.
STEP #2: GET A GLASS CONTAINER
At Michael's, you can also find glass containers in all shapes and sizes. I decided to go with this rectangular one so that I could place this against my wall. Also, the more brushes you have, I suggest getting a bigger container so that you can accommodate all the brushes and have them evenly spaced out.
STEP #3: POUR THE SAND IN AND GET TO STICKING
After you have poured the sand in, get ready to start sticking those puppies (brushes) in the sand. Don't they remind you of little plants sticking up out of the soil? :)

And there you have it! Your own planter of brushes! :)
