- 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.

- 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.
