Everyone likes to DIY – whether it be a fun craft with kids, something to decorate your home, or a homemade body scrub or face mask.

We think the best time to do all sorts of fun DIYs is when it’s too cold to go outside. Luckily, it’s starting to get cold!

We rounded up our Top 5 favorite DIYs using coconut oil since it’s the best thing for your skin and hair!

(Plus, all of these can double as fun Christmas gifts for the beauty lovers in your life!)

  1. White Chocolate Coconut Bath Melts: These melts will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling like chocolate. Pop the mix in a cute Christmas themed mold and they make a perfect gift!
  2. Coconut Oil Lipgloss: Winter is here and chapped lips are not attractive. This easy-to-make gloss is fully customizable, from color to flavor.
