I love lip gloss.

Like a lot. 

If you look in my bathroom drawer you will find more lip gloss than any other item. I like the way it feels, I like that I can use it on its own or over a darker color and I love all the colors! Unfortunately my pocket book doesn’t like to me to purchase every color just to find “the one” so I wanted to give you a fun DIY craft to make your own Crayon Lipgloss from left over crayons from your kids box.

This is super easy (yep, you novices can do it!), and DIY  gives you the ability to change colors on the fly and stock up a variety of unusual pigments for special occasions. Plus it takes less than 10 minutes so even us busy moms can whip up a batch in no time!

What you will need

Ingredients to create your lipgloss

  • 2 Tsp Coconut oil – its a lumpy consistency and I bought mine organic at the health food store
  • Non Toxic Crayons with Paper Removed

Additional items you will need

  • A double boiler OR a pan with a tiny glass bowl to place inside
  • paint containers w/ lids to store your lipgloss. I found mine at Hobby Lobby for $3 a dozen in the paint section

step1Pick the colors you want out of your crayon box.

TIP: If I could give you a parental tip, it would be to not to do this around kids so they don’t have an epic meltdown over you using their materials.

step2Chop up your crayons in tinier pieces that make them easier to melt.

step3Add just enough water to cover the bottom of a pan, place on stove on med-high heat. Then add a small glass bowl or dish to the bottom. The water should not go into your dish. Place your crayon pieces and 2 tsp of Coconut oil in your bowl.

As the water heats up it will heat up your bowl and melt your oil and your crayons together. You can use a toothpick to swirl it around and mix it all together.

Tip: I put a tiny drop of Vanilla Extract into mine to bring out a pretty smell and taste! I’m sure peppermint would go nicely too.

step4Remove from heat. Here is the tricky part. Remove your bowl from your sauce pan CAREFULLY (its hot!) and then pour into your storage containers. I used a spatula and fork to assist in removing my tiny bowl and then used a heating pad to pour (over my sink) the liquid into my tubs.

Stick in freezer for about 2 minutes to cool down. This will help your mixture turn into a gloss consistency! Pull out and they are perfectly ready to use immediately.
