Hi, it’s Tisa from Just My Little Mess to show you a quick and really easy summer project to share with your kids.  I loved making DIY Jello Lip Gloss when I was younger, Have you ever made homemade lip gloss? It’s rather easy and today I’m going to show you how!

DIY Jello Lipgloss
Who doesn’t love J-E-L-L-O? It’s such an easy dessert and almost everybody has a box or two in their cupboards, right? Today we decided to use the Jello that we already had in our pantry to make DIY Jello lip gloss.

How to Make Your Own Lipgloss at Home

  • Jello (any flavor)
  • Lip Gloss Containers
  • Coconut Oil
  • Petroleum Jelly
  • Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoons

DIY Jello Lipgloss


Scoop out the coconut oil and petroleum jelly into a microwave-safe bowl using a 1 to 1 ratio.
(We used 1/2 cup each, and it makes a lot)

Place the bowl into the microwave for 30 seconds and then mix the contents with a spoon until almost smooth. Make sure that the Jello dissolves as much as possible to ensure that the lip gloss becomes as smooth as possible.

Using a separate bowl, measure out 4 teaspoons of the oil and jelly mixture and 1 teaspoon of the powdered jello.  This amount fits my lip gloss containers perfectly. 

Let them set up overnight and you have DIY lip gloss!  Please note that these will not add color to your lips, they do however have a slight flavor.  Want more flavor? You can add more jello to make the flavor more intense.
