DIY: Glam Up Your Old Wisdom Teeth
It’s about that time in life when wisdom teeth are ripped out from skulls in droves. Don’t be like one of those normies and throw out your chompers, turn them into ADORABLE accessories! Here is everything you need:
- Clean Jars
- Craft Wire
- Dissection kit
- Your teeth, of course!
Step one: Ask your local oral surgeon to pull out your teeth, preferably intact, and to let you keep them. Tell them all about your crafting ideas, and maybe they’ll give you a few extras!
Step two: The FIRST thing you should do with your teeth is bleach them. None of that bloody mess on MY crafting station! Just place your teeth in a clean jar and cover them with liquid bleach. Leave them there for at least two hours, or however long you like. Here is what they should look like after this process:
What pearly whites!
Step three: Decorate! Let those creative juices flow all over you! Here, I used crafting wire to turn my teeth into charms for necklaces, as well as a ring. The tools that come in any basic dissection kit are perfect for shaping the wire to your every need. It is imperative to keep in mind that this is the fun part, and to not let any societal expectations hold you back.
