Article: How to Make a Lip Balm Holder


In this tutorial, we will learn how to make a simple crochet lip balm holder. This holder features a spiral design and includes a clip, making it easy to attach to various items. It's a quick and fun project that requires basic crochet skills. Let's dive right in and get started!

Supplies Needed

Before we begin, gather the following supplies:

  • Yarn: Choose a worsted weight yarn of your choice. This project doesn't require a lot of yarn, so feel free to use scraps from your stash.
  • Crochet Hook: We recommend using a G hook or a 4mm hook for this project.
  • Hook or Keychain: You'll need a hook or a keychain to attach to the finished holder. A claw clasp or a split ring works well.
  • Scissors: Handy for cutting the yarn.
  • Tapestry Needle: Used for weaving in ends.
  • Split Ring Marker: Helps mark the first stitch of each round.
  • Lip Balm: You'll use this to measure against the holder at various points in the project.

Getting Started

To start, make a slip knot and put the loop on your hook. Chain three, then join it in a loop with a slip stitch. We recommend slipping the stitch, chaining one, and using a split ring to find the center of the chain.

Making the Initial Chain

Make nine single crochets into the ring. Ensure that you work your stitches over the starting tail to cover it up. This helps give your project a neater finish.

Making the First Round

From this point onward, we'll be working in a spiral. Start with the first stitch of the round, ignoring the chain one you made earlier. It's essential to use a split ring marker to mark the first stitch of each round to avoid losing track. Continue single crocheting in each stitch around until you reach the end of the round.

Working in a Spiral

Continue crocheting in the spiral, making single crochet stitches. To ensure a proper fit, it's crucial to stop and check if the lip balm slides in easily. Adjust the stitches as needed to make it snug but not too tight or loose. Remember, there's no need to swatch for this project due to its small size.

Testing the Fit

Around the third or fourth round, stop to test the fit of the lip balm. Ensure it slides in easily but remains secure inside the holder. If adjustments are needed, you can add or remove stitches by ripping back to the first round.

Adding the Hook

Once you've achieved the desired length, it's time to attach the hook. Choose a position on the round and insert the hook. You can use a claw clasp or a keychain — the choice is yours. Ensure the opening part of the clasp faces down for easy attachment.

Finishing Off the Holder

On the last round, make a single crochet stitch by working behind the clip. It should fit nicely without hindering functionality. To close off the cozy, omit making a slip stitch into the last stitch. Cut the yarn and pull it through, creating a continuous loop. Use a tapestry needle to weave in the end, hiding it inside the stitches.

Washing and Caring for the Holder

If you used machine-washable yarn, you can easily wash the holder. Just toss it in with your regular laundry and remember to secure the hook to prevent it from getting lost.


With just a few simple stitches, you've created your very own lip balm holder. It's not only practical but also a stylish accessory that can be attached to anything. Whether you're a crochet enthusiast or a beginner looking for a quick project, this lip balm holder is a fun way to showcase your skills and keep your lip balm within easy reach. Enjoy crocheting!
