Take a dental floss container and quickly turn it into a cute lost tooth box. The size of the box will make it easy to retrieve if it will be left under a pillow for the tooth fairy to find (in the dark while trying not to wake a child!).

How darling are these tooth fairy dust pendants? I absolutely love all of the bold colors and cute shapes. I can only imagine the excitement of a little girl who awakes to this sweet gift.

Glittery Tooth Fairy Coins
@ Katie

1. Glittery Tooth Fairy Coins

When I think about the tooth fairy, I always think about sparkle and glitter. These sparkly tooth fairy coins make the perfect reward for losing a tooth.  Click here for free tutorial –>  Glittery DIY Tooth Fairy Coins

They are super easy to make with some clear paint, extra-fine glitter and whatever change you have lying around.

Tip:  I recommend making a enough to get you through your first few lost teeth.

If there is one thing this tooth fairy has learned, it is that glitter can take some time to dry and dries even slower when applied at 10:00 pm by a tired tooth fairy.

Also note that once the tooth fairy leaves sparkly coins, regular currency will never be accepted. {giggles}
