Excited for another addition of Saw It. Pinned It. Did It. I have had this project in the works for a few weeks. This DIY Makeup Board is helping to clear out my cluttered makeup drawer in my bathroom.
I am always having to move things around to find the one I want to use that day. So my inspiration for this project came from a combination of different pins.
And this one:

The supplies you will need are:
- Flat cookie sheet
- Fabric big enough to cover the cookie sheet and wrap around the back
- Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Makeup you want to hang
- Ribbon (not pictured)
- Hook or picture hanger
Instructions – Cut your fabric to the size of the cookie sheet with about a 1/4 inch around to allow for it to wrap around the back. You can use spray adhesive or your glue gun and glue the fabric to the back. Pull tight to make sure the fabric lays flat.
Fold over the corners and get them really flat.
Next glue your magnets to the back of your makeup tins that you want to hang on your board. Now this is where I give you my super secret, I failed my first attempt at this project. I bought some cheapo magnets from the craft store and when I glued them and attached them, the makeup slid right off the board. So I did a little more research and bought Neodymium magnets from Etsy. Neodymium is just another fancy word for wicked strong magnets. 🙂 These suckers would not budge and when they get even somewhat close together they “jump” together. I got a set of 50 for only $7.00 on Etsy.
Before I cut my ribbon I hung my hook and decided how long I wanted the board to hang. Glue your ribbon to the back, hang and enjoy!!
I used a command hook just to get it up, but will be changing to a more decorative hook soon. What do you think? Better than the draw so full I couldn’t find anything. I think so.

That is such a great idea! I don’t have drawers in my bathroom so I have a little makeup organizer on the counter. It takes up SO MUCH SPACE! This would be an awesome space save and look cute too!
Thanks Amy!! I have very little storage too and this saved a lot of space!
Awesome idea!! love the fabric you used!!
Thanks Kelly! It is so great because you can use any fabric to match your bathroom. Could even use it in a bedroom and circle metal jars for earrings, maybe?

I’ve been wanting to make one of these forever! Maybe this can be my project for next weeks link up 🙂 & I love the yellow!
Kristen, you totally should. It was so easy to do, and so worth it! Cleared a lot of space in my little bathroom. Just take my word for it on the magnets, don’t want your makeup to end up in little pieces! 😉 Yellow makes the world look brighter!
This is brilliant! I definitely want to try this!
Thanks Laura. If you do please send me the link would love to see how others come up with their version.
