DIY Your Vanity Like a Pro!

Don’t let a tight budget stop you from building your dream beauty station! Honestly, why spend a fortune on acrylic makeup organizers and pretty trays to display your beauty products when you can DIY the entire thing for a fraction of the cost.

Want to create the perfect beauty station? Here are 2 simple DIY projects that’ll take your makeup situation to the next level!

1. Rose box

The best way to make any space more visually appealing? Add some flowers to your tabletop! Although there’s usually a pretty hefty price tag attached to a floral arrangement, you’ll be happy to hear that making your own rose box is one of the easiest DIY projects EVER.

Materials:

  • A gift box (square or rectangle depending on your preference)
  • Artificial flowers with stems
  • Foam blocks

You can use different materials depending on how you want your rose box to look. For instance, you can substitute the roses for your favorite type of flowers.

Steps:

Step 1: If you’re using a gift box (that already looks good on the outside), you can skip ahead to Step 2. With a regular box, you’ll need to put in a little more work to cover the exterior up with pretty wrapping paper or contact paper.

Step 2: Measure the perimeter of your box. Use your measurements to trace the foam blocks and to cut out enough pieces to cover up the entire bottom section of the box.

Step 3: Fill the bottom of the box with the foam blocks.

Step 4: Placing them side-by-side, insert the flower stems into the foam blocks. It’s relatively inexpensive to purchase rose stems in bulk online, but you could also separate a bouquet (whatever costs less) into individual stems by cutting it apart.


2. DIY display tray

Adding a tray to your makeup table is the perfect way to display perfume and other beauty products. If you’re more of a visual learner, here’s a quick tutorial.

Materials:

  • 2 picture frames
  • Glue
  • Gemstones or pearls (decorative filler materials)

Steps:

Step 1: Remove all the hardware from both frames so you’re left with the frame and glass panel.

Step 2: Place one frame face down and apply glue along the rim inside so you can secure the glass panel back into the frame. Repeat this step with the 2nd frame.

Step 3: Position one of the frames face down and pour gemstones or any other pretty filler material over the glass panel.

Step 4: Apply glue along the rim of the frame that’s lying face down. Place the 2nd frame (face up) on top of the other frame.
