Paint-Dipped Bamboo Toothbrushes

    I bought these awesome Bamboo Toothbrushes on Amazon and couldn't wait to use them.  The problem was, they looked the same and both Josh and I would be using them. So I decided to dip the ends in paint so we could tell them apart and I couldn't be happier with the results! 

What you need:
•Bamboo Toothbrushes
•Wall paint (It's thinner than craft paint. But you could just mix a little bit of water into some craft paint if you would like) 
•Parchment paper
•Paper plate 

Set your paper plate on a piece of parchment paper. This is what the toothbrush will rest on while it dries. Take your toothbrush and very carefully dip one end into the paint.  Make sure to just do the tip, because you don't want the paint near your mouth when you brush you teeth.  Carefully lay your toothbrush on the plate with the dipped end hanging over the edge. Let dry for two-three hours. My paint did drip during the drying process so just flip the toothbrush over after about half and hour so there isn't a dried bubble on your finished product. You could seal the paint if you would like, but I figured that since it wouldn't be near my mouth that it would be ok.  Enjoy!
