But today was a complete triumph!
With new toothbrushes to work with I had instant success and by instant, I mean in under 5 minutes.
Check out my progress below:
Placing the toothbrush into a pot of boiling water.
A couple of minutes later, it is softened enough to work. I'm using a tea towel and oven mittens to protect my hands.
Firstly, pull out the bristles with pliers - this is quite therapeutic, especially after a hard day at work!
A tea towel is great to protect your hands from the hot plastic plus it catches all the dripping water. I gently bend the ends upwards and around......
Make sure you leave a gap so you can slide it onto your wrist.Now THAT was fun!
I hope you'll give it a go. Here's the link to the tutorial at Apostrophy Designs that I mentioned yesterday. Tori did this with the neighbourhood kids - what a great idea to keep the kids amused.
Go on, have some fun; Do a Google images search for "toothbrush bracelet" and see how many other people have had fun with this!
