Here is another fun project that I’ve added to my Crafting From Your Stockpile series. As you may or may not know, each project I post in this series involves a product that I’ve gotten for free or dirt cheap using coupons. If I get more than my family can use, that I usually give it away or donate it. But some I hang on to and come up with ideas like the one below. This one is to show you how to make an easy centerpiece with toothbrushes!
Before I give you all of the instructions, here is currently what is on my dining room table as our Christmas centerpiece.
To start, grab 3 toothbrushes. I’ve gotten so many for free in the past year, that it was easy for me to find 3! I linked them up like the picture shows above with a plastic ring. I got my ring for an Airborne bottle. You could also get one from a milk jug.
I used scissors and a razor blade to get rid of the toothbrush bristles.
Back in the ring each toothbrush went. I didn’t cover up the ring, but I’m sure you could also wrap that with fabric if you so chose. Or paint it, color with a sharpie, etc.
This was the finished project and my summer version with the straw balls (is that what those are called?) that I already had at my house. The current Christmas version is pictured at the top. I like this, because it is versatile and can change with the seasons.
How about you? Do you have any fun craft ideas using toothbrushes? Any other easy centerpiece ideas? If so, I’d love to have you send them over to me for possible posting!
