11/30 | Personalized Makeup Bag

Gift giving is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season! While Christmas may seem in the distant future, it is never too early to start getting your gifts ready especially if you plan on making a lot of gifts. That’s why we have joined up with lots of other bloggers and sponsors in the Handmade Holidays Blog Hop to bring you a ton of DIY gift ideas!

There are over 80 unique handmade gift ideas in the hop for you! I made this totally girly girl personalized makeup bag and I’ll be sharing how you can make it as a gift this holiday season. Also, be sure to read to the end to learn about the GIVEAWAY!

You will need: cosmetic bag | DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint | Americana Decor Stencil                                  DecoArt Personally Yours Stencil | makeup sponges 

The first thing you will want to do is stencil on the crown. This cute little crown design was part of a 12×12 stencil but I only used the crown. A helpful tip for stenciling on your cosmetic bag is to place something with a flat surface like a book inside of it. Apply the paint with a makeup sponge using a light dabbing motion.

Next step is to stencil on the recipient’s name. I am in love with this font! You will probably only be able to use a full name if it short, but if the person you want to gift it to has a longer name you can always use their initials.

I think it turned out great. I get nervous with stenciling projects, but with the right technique you will get awesome results. I think this personalized cosmetic bag with some makeup inside would be the perfect gift for any girly girl!
