Ever since we did an American Girl makeup craft we have gotten a lot of requests for lip gloss, lip stick, Baby Lips, and so on. Since these all fall in the same category, we decided to make a generic lipstick that way you can customize it any way you want. You can use different paper straws for different tube designs. You can also make the Baby Lips just by adding a label! This is such an easy craft and we love how you can change up the look!

Materials Needed:

  • Paper Straw
  • Birthday Candle
  • Scrap Paper Strips
  • Eye Liner Lid


  • You can paint the paper straw a different color to make it look like a certain type of lipstick. For example, a black tube for regular lipstick, a pink tube for lip gloss and so on.
  • If you only have one color candle, you can also paint the candle to make different shades of lipstick.
