Toothbrush bracelets

Valentine's Day is approaching!. In my opinion, Love should be celebrated every single day of the year ;) but if you are thinking about giving a little something to your loved ones, why not trying these toothbrush bracelets?. You could do the shaping and your little ones the decorative part. They look really cool and it is an excellent gift idea ;)

What you'll need:
-Old toothbrush
-Tweezers or pliers
-Large mug
-Oven gloves

How to make it:
-Remove all the bristles from the toothbrush with tweezers or pliers.
-Boil water.
-Keep water boiling, put toothbrush in water for five minutes.
-Remove toothbrush with tongs, bend to desired shape.
-If toothbrush doesn't bend enough, submerge again in water.
-Remove brush and bend as much as possible.
-Place bent toothbrush in bottom of mug to hold it's shape while it cools.
-Pour cold water in mug and remove your new bracelet.

This craft requires fishing the hot toothbrushes out of boiling water and bending them while they are still hot. Be sure to use a simple toothbrush for this, it seems the fancier, and more high tech the toothbrush the stronger, and more difficult to bend. We had luck with the classic REACH toothbrushes.
