How to: Make studded makeup holders
Managing editor and resident crafter Catherine Therrien uses the season’s hottest trend – studs! – to embellish shiny black glasses, creating makeup holders with a dose of sass and sophistication.
- Wire cutters
- Silver thumbtacks
- Glue gun
- Black (or coloured) drinking glasses
1 Determine your geometric design. If you’re embellishing multiple glasses, think about doing a different design for each one.
2 Cut the ends off of the thumbtacks using a pair of wire cutters. Wear safety goggles.
3 Carefully apply a dab of hot glue to the back of the thumbtack and hold against the glass for a few seconds. Repeat until the design is complete.
