Making a Small Lure Cover Using a Toothbrush Cover

Not sure why I didn't think of this sooner but it's a fairly simple task to modify one of those cheap toothbrush covers that snaps over just the head of a toothbrush, and turn it into a handy lure cover.  This will be mostly pictures since most people reading already got the concept.  The only modification that seems to be necessary is to glue a little piece of foam into the toothbrush cover to close up the toothbrush-handle-sized" hole to keep the cover from easily falling off the rod tip / lure. 

Total cost to make two of these is about $1.

Materials:
  • Toothbrush Cover
  • 3/16" Craft Foam Sheet

Tools:
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun

1) Get the toothbrush covers at Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree, or where-ever such things are sold.

2) Heat up a dual-temp glue gun to the "low" heat setting so you don't melt the foam or plastic.


3) For each toothbrush cover, cut a piece of craft foam to a size that will cover the toothbrush handle opening when attached to the inside of the toothbrush cover lid.


4) Hot glue the foam piece into the lid.


5) Insert both the small lure and the rod tip into the modified toothbrush cover.
