Recycled Toothbrush Bracelet

Ok, So as part of my new remodel...Im going to start posting new crafts each week!!
So here goes my first!

This craft is really cool for a couple of reasons..

1.well its super unique i never heard of wearing your toothbrush!
2. They are actually pretty cute and I see endless ways to make it cuter!
3. Well its inexpensive


Ok, here is your supply list:

an old toothbrush(or a sparkley new one)
Tweezers or pliers
Oven  gloves
tongs
pot
large pot

And here is what you do with all those fancey supplies:
*First you need to remove all the bristles from the brush using your tweezers or pliers

*Then you will need to boil your water, and keep it boiling

*Then put your tooth brush in the boiling water for 5 minutes

*Now you can remove the toothbrush and now that its soft you can bend it into shape
 (use your gloves its hot)
(if its not soft enough for you to bend put it back in the boiling water for a few more min)

*Now to use the mug, you will put your toothbrush down in the bottom of the mug to help hold its shape

*Finally you can poor cold water in the mug to cool the toothbrush and pull it out

**VIOLA**
YOU NOW HAVE A TOOTHBRUSH BRACELET
