You Will Need

  • 3 Round or square Styrofoams
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Glitter of your choice
  • Mod Podge (seal in loose glitter)
  • Metal Stick or wooden stick
  • Ribbon -Make sure its the right widthDIY 100 Lipstick Holder (Ultimate Lipstick Holder) large do it yourself how to foam sponge (1)Steps:
    • Lightly trace the smaller circles on the larger one.
    • Create holes for your lipsticks. I prefer 3/4 inch to start. Home depot and art stores has a variety of options.
    • Be careful not to break the foam.  Glue it back together if needed. Avoid Hot Glue on Foam.
    • Once done, puncture the hole completely and make sure you lift your foam up.
    • Take a little extra time on the smallest circle. Dot around it to create your face pattern. Create different hole sizes for different products.
    • Use an art foam stick to make holes it makes this part easy!
    • Use your other hand to steady the foam.
    • Using a paper plate add mod Podge. This will thicken the paint, fill in holes and dilute it so you use less paint. But totally optional.
    • Next take a water based or foam safe paint and add to the mix.
    • Pour in some glitter. There will be other glitter options later.
    • Fold and mix everything in the begin to  and paint.
    • You can use foam on a stick but I prefer a brush.
    • Use a stippling motion to get the paint into the crevices of the foam.
    • Moving on to the next circle. Only paint the outer edge to save time and paint.
    • Option 2 for glitter: Use a glitter paint. This will give you a subtle glitter finish.
    • Option 3 for glitter : Pour and sprinkle loose glitter onto wet paint.  Place a sheet of paper to catch the loose glitter.
    • Hate glitter fall out? Paint on Mod Podge over the glitter. Use the gloss finish for a glossy finish.
    • Let everything dry over night.
    • Size and match ribbon to edges of the styrofoam.
    • Glue ribbon down.
    • Over lap and glue edge.
    • Create a bow to add a little girllyness. Hot Gluing ribbon works best.
    • Glue bow to stand with fabric glue.
    • Glue down circles together using Mod Podge or any foam safe glue.
    • Let everything dry completely before use.
