Don’t forget to brush your teeth! This friendly monster toothbrush holder is sure to remind your kids to brush regularly! This monster toothbrush holder is easy to make with only a few craft items. It will make a great gift too:)
You will need:
- A cylindrical container
- Foam strip
- Extra- large pom pom
- 2 Extra thick pipe cleaners
- 2 Thin pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- False nails
- Lolly stick
What to do:
Paint your container in the colour of your choice. I decided on one colour scheme for this craft. I used a chips container and trimmed of a quarter of the length. Because the container is going to stand in the bathroom, I sealed the paint with a layer of clear varnish. If you are using a metal tin, it won’t be necessary to seal. Once the container is dry, glue a strip of foam on the top to round off. (A glue gun works best for this)
To make the monster: Fold one of the thick pipe cleaners in half and glue to the container. this will be the legs. Take the other thick pipe cleaner and thread through the pompom to form the arms. Glue the pompom to the container and over the legs. Glue the eyes in place.
Open a line in the pompom and glue the false nails in place to make the teeth. Make the hair by cutting the thin pipe cleaner into 4 equal lengths and insert into the top of the head. You can curl the tops of the hair or cut the pipe cleaner in more and shorter lengths and give him spiky hair.
Use a small piece of white pipe cleaner and glue to the lolly stick to make the toothbrush. Shape the arms and fold the toothbrush into the hand. Put floss to his other hand.
Add your toothbrush and toothpaste to the container and your tooth monster is ready for his place in the bathroom!
