Simply Creative Upcycled Make Up Brushes Tutorial

If you are a lover of all things make up or know someone who can’t get enough of their beauty products, this tutorial is for you!

Today, Maxine is going to show you how to transform your make up brushes with the Simply Creative decoupage papers to give them a colourful -and in this case- a magical twist! Unicorns are all the rage so we had to use these pretty decoupage papers to give our brushes a mystical look.

What you Need

Simply Creative Unicorn Decoupage Papers

Dovecraft Glitter Glue

First Edition Deco Mache Adhesive and Varnish Glue and Brush


How to Make

1. Cut a selection of small polka dot squares from the Simply Creative Unicorn Decoupage paper set.


2. Apply a layer of First Edition Adhesive and Varnish glue to your brush handle. Adhere the decoupage squares to the brush until the handle is covered. TIP Cover each piece with the glue as you apply it.
