Last week was a big first in our family! The first tooth fell out!

Like all of my best ideas, they come at the very last minute. So, the night she lost her tooth, we had the brilliant idea that we needed a teeny tiny tooth fairy door for the tooth fairy to enter the house. Believe or not, you can buy a tooth fairy door on etsy. But, my style and my budget is more DIY. I navigated the internet to figure out how to go about making our very own tooth fairy door and found the best deal through multiple vendors on ebay.

I got the door and crown molding from one vendor, the “glass crystal” knob and keyhole from another vendor and door knocker from yet another vendor.

The whole set up ended costing just about $20.

I painted the frame and molding Old White.

Then I used Emile on the door with a little bit of Antoinette mixed in it for the pinky/purply marbly effect. Super girly!

Finally, I hot glued the accessories for the final look and voila! The tooth fairy can now get inside our house to collect her new tooth.

Just how small is this teeny tiny tooth fairy door…


On a side note, since we had to wait about a week to get the door in the mail and painted, the tooth fairy left a teeny tiny note for my daughter explaining that she couldn’t get into the house and thought it fair to leave a deposit for her tooth until she returned.

My daughter wanted to put a price tag on her tooth so the tooth fairy new just how much to pay. That’s my girl!
