People have gotten really creative lately with reusing old objects they no longer need. Rather than throw these things away there's a movement to give them new life. But how do you reuse an old toothbrush? Turns out you make it a fashion item. Here are a few simple steps to make a bracelet (and don't worry, it'll be clean).

It's easier (and cheaper) than you think.


Start with toothbrushes, pliers, and a pot of water.

This isn't a tool-intensive process. In fact, you've probably got everything you need already.


You can use new toothbrushes if you prefer.

Maybe you don't want to use an old toothbrush. Fair enough! Pick up some new ones in a color that you like.


Use the pliers to remove the bristles.

What kind of bracelet has bristles? The pliers will make short work of them.


Double-check for bristles!

Make sure they're all gone! They'll serve no purpose in the end (and might look a bit weird).


Begin boiling water.

The pot is where the magic will happen.


Get some tongs and a towel.

These are the last two tools you'll need, but they're very important...
