Turn a Potholder into a Makeup Brush Holder

Turn Pot Holder into Makeup Brush Holder

If you’re in need of a makeup brush holder and don’t want to spend a lot of money, here is a simple way to make one for $1.  Just turn a pot holder that contains a pocket opening into a nice makeup brush holder.  I found this pot holder at one of the Everything’s a Dollar Store and turned it into a nice makeup brush holder for my teenage daughter.  She has tons of brushes that are thrown into a bag.  I thought this would be a neat way to organize her brushes, especially the ones that she likes to use a lot.  Just follow the simple steps below.

Items Needed:

  • pot holder with pocket
  • matching thread

Directions:

Find a potholder that has a large pocket.  This potholder is quite large. Some are smaller.

Then cut a little part of the edge down to allow you to fold under.

Starting with the top pocket.  Sew down different size pocket areas.  I did not measure the small pocket areas.  I sewed various sizes depending on the size of the brushes to be inserted.  You may sew large ones, small ones, or mix the sizes.
