Tooth Fairy has Arrived

Laci will be 6 next month and lost her first tooth on Tuesday, February 5th last week. In a panic I went Hobby Lobby last Monday and got all the stuff to make her tooth fairy door....

I know I am sure some of you are like... WHAT? A tooth fairy door... What is that? Or... really she doesn't miss anything. I know I know. I just can't stop, it is what I do. :)

So with out further ado... here is a close up so that you can see the glitter effect:

Here it is installed on her wall by the closet door:

Here it is open, of course you don't just see the wall. You see a magical fairy forest... what kind of mom do you think I am? That would lack incredible imagination if you still saw the wall. :)

Here it is with her tooth fairy pillow that sits outside the door for the fairy to easily pick up. We wouldn't want to risk the fairy waking her up now would we?

And last but not least here is a shot of what the fairy left for her...
  • She turned the glass of water by her bedside pink because it was a girl fairy that came to get her tooth (it will turn blue if it is a boy fairy)
  • She left the $5.00
  • She sprinkled pink and purple glitter around her desk
  • She left a note, her name was Sabrina Starshine and she thanked Laci for taking care of her tooth.

Ok I know some of you are thinking dude... $5 but it was her first tooth... I think that is really special and important. The price will definatly not be that high next time.

Anyways, what do you think about the tooth fairy's door and her first visit.



  1. What a cute idea! I hate sneaking around to find the tooth!

  2. This is the cutest thing ever!

  3. What a clever and cute idea! Thanks for posting!

  4. Cute idea. I hated trying to find the tooth under their pillow w/o waking them up. But I'd worry about explaining why none of her friends have a tooth fairy door. In any case, I would love to hear more on how the door works. Where it came from? How long does it stay? Etc.
    p.s. Make sure you never, ever, use that color/kind of glitter for anything else. That's how my dd figured out the tooth fairy. Or at the very least don't call it fairy dust. ;)

    1. We just told her that it would be easiest for her tooth fairy to get in through a door of her size instead of a huge door. No questions after that... As for the glitter, she has different fairies come each time, the last time she had Marvin Moonbeam or something like that. Each fairy has their own dust/glitter/confetti... Plus I have a HUGE craft room and she knows I have glitter in there of all different colors to use for all different things. So luckily she doesn't make that connection.

      Anyways, I bought a blank door from Hobby Lobby and painted/glittered it up. It is attached with command strips on her wall by the closet, and that is where it stays. Anyways, I love that she loves it! Her happiness makes me smile!

  5. I absolutely love the background! Is that just a scrapbook page?

  6. Google search Enchanted Forests ;),isz:l&tbm=isch&source=lnt&sa=X&ved=0CBUQpwVqFQoTCNzv4ta-kMcCFQWUiAoduskHvg&dpr=1&biw=1600&bih=715#imgrc=_
