DIY Walnut lip balm

FullSizeRender-35Hello guys, sorry I haven’t posted in a while… I was really busy with exams and a lot of other stuff and I didn’t really had the time to post.

But now I’m back and I’m going to show you how to make this very cute lip balm. It isn’t hard, and it’ll only take about 20 minutes to make.

What you’ll need:

  • A jar of vaseline
  • An empty walnut shell
  • A little bit of coloured candle wax
  • Paint

Step 1: Paint the walnut shells in a pretty colour. I chose for light pink paint because my lip balm is pink too, but you can choose whatever colour you want.

Step 2: Now we’re going to make the lip balm itself. To do this, put a tee spoon of vaseline and a little piece of candle wax in a glass bowl. (The candle wax is to make the lip balm a little vaster and to add colour to it. I added red wax, so the lip balm would turn out pink.) If you want, you can add a few drops of aromatic substance to it.

Step 3:Put your bowl in the microwave for about a minute, until is is a liquid substance. If you don’t have a microwave, you could also heat it up in a pan.

Step 4: When it is liquid, you can pour the lip balm into the nutshells. Make sure to fill them up almost entirely.

Wait for the balm to harden, it’ll become a lighter colour.

Step 5: Take a little piece of ribbon and glue it to the back of the shell. Now you can open and close it.

To make sure it’ll stay closed, add just a little bit of adhesive tape to the other side of the shell.
