DIY Harry Potter Makeup Brushes

I am Harry Potter obsessed. If I could redo my house in a combination of Doctor Who and Hogwarts I would be a happy girl. When I saw the Harry Potter makeup brushes floating around the internet, I fell in love. Before jumping to buy new brushes, I wanted to try making them myself and they were so fun. 

If you have made your own homemade wand before, these are really similar in style. The longer and skinnier the brush is the more wand like it will be, although I couldn't resist making wands out of all the styles! 

You will need:

  • Makeup Brushes (Elf ones are $1 a piece) 
  • Hot Glue
  • Metallic Silver Spray Paint 
  • Metallic Aged Copper Spray Paint
  • Masking Tape 
  • Parchment Paper
  • Plastic wrap or a plastic bag

Wrap the top of your brush in plastic wrap or a place a plastic bag over top of the brush part. Use masking tape to secure it and protect any parts of the brush you don't want covered in paint.

Use hot glue to make designs on the handles of the brush. I found that the ones that look the most like wants are the ones that have stripes instead of squiggles.

One the hot glue is dry, spray the brushes with metallic paint. The Aged Copper paint has more of a wand feel but the chrome ones are gorgeous and fun too!

Peel the masking tape off and then cast a spell before you do your makeup!

Do you have a Harry Potter fan in your life that would love these?
