MIY toothbrush bracelet with your old brushes
Well, let’s make a MIY toothbrush bracelet with your old brushes! Shocked by the name! This is really going to be fun! Try it home it’s quite a way simple and a bit innovative.
Ok! Let’s make it.
What will you require?
- Some water
- A saucepan (you can use any other vessel you are comfortable with)
- Plastic toothbrushes
- A thick hand towel
- Heat resistant tong
- Pliers (you will find one in your toolbox)
On your stove, keep water for boiling in a saucepan/any vessel.
While the water is boiling pull off the Tufts/bristle of the brush with the help of pliers.Once you see the water boiling put your old bristle-less brushes (you can use new if you want) into it.
The boiling water will soften the brushes which will then become bendable.
Do you remember, when you fill hot steaming/boiling water in a plastic bottle!
Lol yes! It changes its shape automatically. But here we will manually have to do it. Remove one brush out of the boiling water in a minute or half, with the help of the heat-resistant tong.
You need to this part of MIY very carefully. Do not hurt your self by holding the hot brush with your bare hands.keep the towel/thick napkin ready before you remove the brush out from the boiling water.
After picking out the brush from the water place it on the towel. You need to do this very quickly before the brush gets cool down.
Wrap the towel around the brush and start bending the brush with the help of the tong. Remember the pores of the bristle should remain at the inside when you turn it.
Oops, the brush got cool before you get the bracelet shape! Don’t worry!!
Put the same half bent brush back into the boiling water and remove it from the water when you feel the brush is soft and s ready for the bending procedure. Bend it until you get it to your size bangle shaped!
It will cool down within a minute or two. You can make this is a different way too.
You just have to add one more step. Just after you remove the soft brush out from the boiling water start twisting it from both the sides. Then again put it into the water.
Remove it and bend it according to the required size. And your MIY colorful toothbrush bracelet is ready!
