{November 8, 2013}   DIY Makeup Organizer!


Magnetized makeup boards are a dream solution for those of us who want to streamline and simplify our routines. Unlike an overstuffed makeup bag, a magnet board allows you to keep your favorite and most-used products easily reachable and organized. And you can make one yourself!

While I could never fit all of my makeup onto one board, it still made my morning routine fast by putting my best-loved products right within reach.

You will need

hanging frame with a snap-in back (no glass)
sheet of metal cut to the measurements of the frame (any hardware store can do this)
Mod Podge or a similar brush-on glue
decorative paper or thin fabric
heavy-duty magnetic dots


1: Brush Mod Podge over the surface of the sheet metal.

2: Carefully lay your decorative fabric or paper over the wet glue and smooth the material across the surface, making sure there are no bumps or air bubbles. Fold the excess fabric or paper around to the back of the metal sheet and allow to dry.

3:  Press the covered metal sheet into your frame and snap the frame’s back into place.

4: Stick magnets to the board and attach each of your favorite cosmetics. Arrange them on your new makeup board! (For makeup in plastic pots, you can get adhesive metal plates).

5: Hang it up in your bedroom or bathroom for a decorative main makeup attraction!
