So today we’re going to be sharing a super fun diy for the gal pals in your life and I promise that this is one the easiest DIYs you’ll ever make plus it requires hardly any materials!

YOU WILL NEED:

Coconut oil // lipstick in a variety of colours // small 5ml pots //

STEP 1:

Spoon two tablespoons of coconut oil into a bowl and then shave a small amount of lipstick into the bowl. I just used a knife to scrape a section off and just used some old lipsticks I had lying around that I didn’t really wear anymore!

STEP 2:

Heat the bowl in the microwave for 30 second intervals at a time, stirring in between each time scale. I found that sometimes I needed to use the back of my spoon to ‘squash’ the lipstick into the oil slightly.

Ombre Candle DIY Wedding Favours Unique Cheap Easy DIY make your own pink gifts-9

You may remember a couple of weeks ago we were sent a box of goodies from the paint heaven company that is rustoleum? We were challenged to upcycle something and in case you missed it you can check out how we upgraded a bunch of teapots here! As you can imagine though with a box of amazing paints lying around my house it wasn’t long until I got itchy feet and had to dive straight back into the package!

I headed to a local gift shop and bought a bunch of plain white taper candles (they were only 70p each!) and thought it would be fun to create an ombre effect on them using the multi purpose spray paint in candy pink! I think these would make beautiful favours for a wedding or even gifts for your bridesmaids and obviously at a bargain price! Here’s how you can make your own:

YOU WILL NEED:

White taper candles // spray paint in the colour of your choice // glasses (for drying) //

STEP 1:

Holding the top of the candle, simply spray paint the bottom of the candle creating an ombre effect.

STEP 2:

Pop the candle in a glass, upside down and allow the paint the fully dry.
