DIY Brush and Eye Pencil Holder

I was at Michael's the other day and came across these paper mache houses that separated so you could use them as containers. They were on clearance for a dollar, so I bought two and used the bottoms to hold my brushes and eye utensils. (Is utensils the right word to use there? Lol.) I painted the boxes red and glued some black lace scraps I happened to have leftover from a previous project. And, voila....I have some new brush holders that cost me about 3 bucks to make.

oh they're really pretty :)

I have decided i don't like the whole.. beads in a glass thing. It doesn't work for me.

@Phoebe Thanks!

I thought about the beads in glass, but I am a complete clutz that I would have broken it in less than a week! And, it would have to be cleaned because of dust. I though this would hide it better.
