Step 1: Gather Your Materials

For this super easy DIY you will need...

-Chapstick(white, tan, and clear work best)

-crayons(any brand should work)

-vanilla/peppermint extract


-coconut oil

-olive oil

Step 2: Starting the Project

Take the Chapstick out of the tube and put it in a measuring cup/Dixie cup( it's nice to store extra lipstick in the Dixie cup for later) put 3/4 of a crayon in with the Chapstick. Microwave the Chapstick and crayon for 2.5 minutes. If you are adding coconut oil this is a good time to do so.

Step 3: Storing the Lipstick

Once the mixture is microwaved take the measuring cup/Dixie cup out of the microwave CAREFULLY I found it helps warping a towel around your hand or using an oven mit. Mix the mixture up with a plastic fork or chopstick. This is the time to add the sent/flavor to your lipstick. CAREFULLY pour the mixture into the empty tube of Chapstick.

Step 4: Finishing the Project

Once the lipstick has dried( it doesn't take that long to) you will notice that there is a hole in the center. Use the extra lipstick that's in the Dixie cup to fill in that hole

Step 5: Packaging the Lipstick

There are many different ways to package the lipstick. You can keep its original label, or you can use the crayon label. You can also just leave the tube blank. What I like to is take a piece of paper, measure it to fit the tube, decorate the tube, and put tape over it, and then glue it the the tube

    I'm so sorry that I I made something and posted it because I thought it was cool and I gave it a try. So sorry that I forgot to put a credits to you. Where did you get the idea anyway. You didn't make up the recipe! I'm new to this okay?! And how do you have copyright laws. I used this idea because I liked it!
