Hi guys it’s Caitlyn, and I have like a really exciting tutorial for you. I have been wanting to do this for so long, I have tried so many trials and I finally found a way that I really like and I really want to share with you guys. And it is DIY eos’s. I have seen so many tutorials for this and I have never found one that I like and I think that the way I found how to do it is super cheap. I didn’t have to spend any money I found this stuff around my house.
I mean that could be different for some but I just love it and I want to show you close ups. This one was the first one that I made and it didn’t turn out as well as the one that I made today. But this is how the first one looks. I mean its still good but it’s not as good as this one. It just shows you that the more you practice the better this DIY will be. Because it doesn’t always turn out good the first time. You know.
This is the second one and I think it looks exactly like a eos. I mean the consistency will vary depending on how much product you used or whatever, and it’s not going to be exactly like a eos. Eos’s are $3, I think thats a very affordable price. So if you want the real thing, $3 is a great price. These aren’t going to match up to them, they’re not perfect. But it is a fun way and if you are feeling creative and you want to recycle and reuse.
DIY Make Your Own EOS Lip Balm! Recycle Old EOS Container
The ones that you have already used up, this is a great DIY for you. So if you would like to see how to make your own eos continue to watch. For supplies you will need A pan A glass container double sided tape saran wrap Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline an empty eos container crayons, this part is up to you. If you don’t want your eos to have a tint to it just use white. I wanted mine to have a little bit of pink in it though, so thats totally up.
To you. lighter and finally, some nail clippers and and pair of scissors. To start the DIY you want to clean out the rest of your product. I used a spoon, you can use whatever you have. You can use your fingers or paper towels. Just get the product out as best you can. Then use the scissors to cut out this plastic divider. It just gets in the way of the eos and you want to get rid of it. and your kind of left with these plastic poky things that are sticking out and the scissors.
Couldn’t get so you want to take your nail clippers and just get rid of those and cut as close as you can. After that you want to go and wash it out with soap and water. The next step is to put water in your pan and put it on a medium heat. For your eos use about a scoop and a half of the Petrolum Jelly or Vaseline per eos container. That should be enough. For crayons I would actually recommend using a little bit more than what I showed in this.
Clip. The crayon is what adds the thickness to the mixture. If you just do it with Vaseline it’s not going to be a very good DIY. It tried it, and it just doesn’t seem to have any structure to it. So the crayons are very important. Once the water has heated up a little bit you are just going to put the glass container in the middle of it. To prepare the eos container we are going to be using the double sided tape. I am folding it in half to make it a little bit stronger.
Then this part is a little bit difficult. The eos container has plastic, its like really smooth plastic and sometimes the tape doesn’t want to stick to the plastic. It just takes some practice. I am putting tape on the top half of the eos, not the bottom. Don’t touch the bottom with the tape. Just the top. I used about 34 pieces, that should be good enough. For the saran wrap I am not using very much. I am just using a little bit. Then I am even going smaller and just cutting it into a very small square.
Which we will be putting on the top where we just put the tape. I am pushing it in the center and then pushing it along the sides. As you saw my first eos didn’t turn out as well as the one I am making right now. This step is really important. It’s all about this. So if you get it wrong the first time thats okay. This is what the liquid mixture should start looking like. You want to be very careful. I would recommend getting a parents help if you are younger.
It is just hot, make sure you use a pot holder or a towel and you are just going to be pouring the vaseline mixture into the two tops of the eos. The next step is to put it in the freezer for 30 minutes. This is what it should look like after you got it out the the freezer. This step you want to be careful as well. It is really important, you don’t want to break the saran wrap by pulling on it too hard because that will make the eos really hard to get out.
Take your time and eventually it should pop out just keep pulling at the edges. It should just come out pretty easily. Hopefully you will have something that looks like a half of a dome, or a half of a circle. Whatever you want to call it. But if you don’t, like I said practice, practice, practice. Another dangerous step that you want a parents help if you are young. You are going to be using the lighter to melt to top layer of the both sides of the eos. You are going to connect the two and this is going to act as a glue.
But don’t get too close to the flame because 1, you don’t want to burn yourself, and 2 it can actually burn the Vaseline and put a burnt layer and you really don’t want that. So I quickly just grabbed the two pieces and kind of squished them together and squeezed the extra product around the edges to make sure that it will stay in place. Then I put it back the freezer for 5 minutes. This is after 5 minutes of it being in the freezer and now I am just cleaning up the.
Edges. I am trying to get it as clean as possible and I am taking my clean finger. Don’t worry it’s not dirty, its clean. And I am making it really smooth. I think that is really key to a eos because they are so smooth. It may not fit at first. You just made this, it’s not like the actually eos so it might have trouble closing it. Just keep trying to open and close it and cleaning it off. Eventually it should fit like it did right here. Once you have it to fit without any struggle, clean it off and then you should have your.
Final product. This is it. I hope you guys liked it. I use it every single day, I love it so much and I hope you love it too. Bye guys. Alright guys, so you are done! I hope that you found this DIY to be easy and simple and affordable. I hope that you found it to be close to the actual eos. because that was really my goal here. I have seen so many tutorials and they just didn’t really match up. I think this is pretty close. Let me know your feelings, your thoughts, your concerns, your questions below. Even.
