1. Cut 4- 3in x 3in pieces and 1- 3 1/8 in x 3 1/8 in piece (highlighted the squares)
2. Hot glue all the 3in pieces to form a square and then glue the base using the 3 1/8 in x 3 1/8in piece.
3. With my remaining duck tape I taped the around the sides the of the holder until the holder is completely covered.
4. (optional) I had black ribbon so using the ribbon which has a width of 1/8 in. I used it to go around my holder covering where the tape line was visible.
Here is what my completed brush holder looks like, please excuse my brushes I need to clean them. I wish I knew how to make a ribbon bow to put in the center.
This is just something I'll use for now until I find something else I like.
