Wrap one of the rubber bands at the end around the whole bunch so they are all tied together:

Expert tip: do this step over a garbage can or you will have a big mess to clean up!

Your funny brush can now be used to add texture to a wide variety of paintings. Possible objects to use a funny brush on: grass, sunflowers, clouds, textured fabric, fur…the options are endless!

go crazy, artists!!
