Mum maximises investment in son’s braces by turning them into Christmas ornament

TikTok has become a place for users to share everything from dance moves to cat videos, but user @austin9943 is going viral on the social media platform after sharing a video of the unique way his mother made use of his braces after he had them removed back in 2014.

In a clip you can watch above and that has been viewed more than 1 million times, the young man describes a visit to the orthodontist to have his braces taken off after four years of wearing them.

When the orthodontist removed Austin’s braces and laid them on a tray to be taken to the trash, his mom stopped her.

“I’m like, ‘Mum, what are you doing?’” he explains in the video.

His mum’s answer?

“Austin, we paid $6,000 for those braces, I’m not letting her throw them away.”

The creative mum turned her son’s former braces into a Christmas ornament, using the metal wires and brackets as tinsel on a Christmas tree.
