What do you do with all that cheap/free make-up that you get at drug stores? Here’s an idea – use it for cheap wall decor!
Now I’ll admit, that I don’t use most of the drug store make-up I get. I actually give away the make-up or other toiletry products that I know I won’t use. I have a friend with 3 daughters in college, and they are the ones who I primarliy give “goody bags” to because I know they need/want these items.
One thing I’ve always wanted to do though, is create some sort of art project that used just make-up as the medium. I always thought that lipstick or nail polish would make great paint. I always wanted to see a masterpiece sparkle a bit with eye shadow or blush. So I finally decided to use some of the free/dirt cheap make-up that I’ve gotten from drug stores and created a piece of make-up art out of it!
I decided that an empty wall in our bedroom needed something fun to brighten up the wall. I thought it would be nice to have our initials framed (something similar to what was on our wedding cake), and I used make-up to decorate the letters. Here is how I did it:
I found a font I liked on Word, and printed out the letters to use as a template. (hint: print as a draft – it saves on ink!)
I used a coupon for Michaels and found a frame sale – each of these frames were $5 each. I glued the letters onto some scrapbook paper and placed them in the frames.
Who else has creative projects that you’ve done using some of your make up stockpile if you have one? Any one else have make-up art that they want to share? If this post inspired you to tackle on your own project, or you’ve already done something similar to this, let me know and I can post it here for others to see!
