DIY: Glam Makeup Brush

I'm really happy with this DIY project! I think a set of fabric-covered makeup brushes (in a little travel bag!) would make a really cute gift. And you could personalize the color scheme.
Supplies: small piece of fabric or paper, mod podge (matte or gloss), scissors, paintbrush, makeup brush
I used a $1 ELF makeup brush that I got at Target. I generally use the ELF studio line of brushes and love them. But I bought this cheapie specifically for this project and to have as a backup brush. But you will need at least a semi-inexpensive brush because the first step is to remove the brush head. This cheap one practically removed itself before I got it out of the package. ;)

1. Remove the brush head.
2. Spread a layer of Mod Podge on the handle.
3. Begin rolling your handle in the fabric or paper and cut to size.
*Tip: You can cut to size first and then Mod Podge or vice versa. Either way is fine.*
4. Mod Podge the fabric down to seal it - do a thick layer on the entire handle!
5. Trim the ends of your fabric off.
6. Cover the exposed end with a little piece of fabric.
7. Seal that wacky-looking piece off with a coordinating strip of fabric. Mod Podge it all down. 
8. Let dry, add a bit of Mod Podge to the tip and put the head and handle back together. 
Better than new! It actually gives a stronger hold.
Voila! I would love to do a whole set with a coordinating travel case.
Or better yet, someone else do the whole set and send it to me! Hehe.

What a fabulous idea!! I am a Mod Podge tragic and I will definitely give it a go. I will use a serviette as once I have prepared it with the Mod Podge, it will be as sturdy as paper and easy to cut and shape. Thanks for sharing!

When you clean the brush of makeup does the water effect the hold of the fabric? I don't want to make these for my sister and the fabric come off the first time she washes them.

@Casey, I haven't had any problems with the fabric holding! Mod Podge is really strong. But I also don't soak the handle in water, either.
