a Tooth Fairy door

We were invaded the other night. 
 Not even Buzz Lightyear & the Hut Huts (toy solider, as Mason calls them) were able to stand their ground against her.
You see, someone has had a loose tooth for a few days & could barely think of anything else ~ other than the magical tooth fairy.
So to build upon that excitement, I placed a tooth fairy door right by his bed a few nights before the “big event” took place.  I painted it yellow to go with his room & placed our address on the door.  We just learned that address & we’re trying to write it now on paper along with our street name.  So any opportunity to use that address, I take it.  Plus, I  think it makes the entire door look more masculine.
Sure enough, she arrived a couple of nights ago.
With tons of glitter & an old family silver dollar.
It was a big event for all of us.

FYI~ here’s the door before.
It’s a doll house door.  I used a coupon @ HobLob & got it for 40% off & I used these magical strips to hang the door.
I used my silhouette machine for the address, or if you don’t have a silhouette machine you could use the rub off number decals in the scrapbook section.
This entire idea was inspired last year by Sharnel at My Life My Loves.  When it’s Madison’s turn, I do plan on painting the door pink, like Sharnel did for her little girl.

  6. We actually have 2 of our very own fairy doors in our house. Every time we move, the fairies move their doors into a new spot in our house. At night, my 3yr old says that she can hear the fairies playing in her room.

    I love it!!!!

  7. How fun…LOVE this! He is so cute.:)

  11. Oh my stink in’ cuteness! This is seriously the cutesy thing I have ever seen! Think you could help me talk hubby into another baby just so I can use this idea?!?

  12. How cute is that??? My son has already lost a few teeth so I guess I couldn’t start this now. :( Just love it!

  16. Love. love. love. I totally can’t wait to use this one day!!!

  17. So clever!

  18. I think I might cry, you are my sweet sentimental friend. I can just imagine him telling his friends about how the tooth fairy comes through her own door at his house. You have made a lasting memory for that sweet boy of yours, he and those other two cuteies are so lucky to have you for their Momma.

    I am thankful to call you friend.

    Cha Cha

    I think my Audrey will be doing this for her kids one day, she is drooling over it. Love that you have inspired my girl.

  19. aDOORable!

  20. Ok, I am WAY over emotional today, but that is such a sweet idea it almost made me cry! What a precious tradition for your kiddos to remember!

  21. Kellie, I have never in my whole life seen something as stinkin’ adorable as this! You will be seeing it featured in my Saturday Seven tomorrow!

  22. This is just precious! I wish I had seen this when my children were younger!

  23. Okay so I love love love this!

  24. Ahhhh! That is the most adorable thing I have ever seen! What a great project :)

  25. What a lovely idea!

  26. Can’t wait to try it!!! What a clever idea!

  27. That is the cutest idea ever!

  28. That is such an adorable idea. Too bad my kids are teenagers.

    I’ll be sharing this on my Facebook page.

  29. My adult kids are too old for this but HOW C-U-T-E! Maybe one day I’ll have grandkids that would love one!

  30. absolutely love love love this idea!!!

  31. Totally adorable. : )

  32. What a wonderful idea! I’ll be making a trip to the craft store this weekend!!!

  33. I have always wanted a fairy door by my front door. Never thought of the dollhouse door, thanks for the idea.

  34. I just want one of those little doors period. tooth fairy or not! so cute.

  35. seriously adorable!

  36. What a genius idea!!! My 11 year old just lost a molar…do you think he’d buy it?!
    Cheers!
    Theresa

  37. Omigosh, love it! So fabulous it makes me feel sad that I have a few years before my 4 year old starts losing any teeth! Stopping by from Tatertots and Jello

  38. hi Kellie!
    First may I say that it is so nice to meet you, and thank you for your sweet, wonderful comment!!

    This yellow door is just the cutest! Congratulations to your adorable son on his visit from the tooth fairy! And that coin, wow! What a lovely gift she brought for him;)

    happy weekend to you and yours!
    best,
    joan

  39. This is the cutest tooth fairy idea I’ve ever seen! I wish I could glue my son’s lost teeth back into his mouth, so that we could start over with one of these. I hope our fairies request a door in their next note (they always leave notes of encouragement with their gifts). I bet they will! Thanks for sharing!

  40. This is such a sweet idea! Can’t wait to share it with others :)

  41. Such a cute idea…and it totally answers the question of how the tooth fairy gets in their bedroom! Precious!

  42. I love this! What a clever idea!

  43. This is so seriously adorable! I remember seeing this idea before but had forgotten about it! I had planned on doing it for my kiddos too. So, so glad you reminded me. I even have a door already and now I know how to hang it!

  44. I looooove this!! Our oldest is so eager to lose his 1st tooth (me, not so much!) but this is exactly what we are going to do for that special event. Yay!! Thanks for the great idea. I’m going to post on my fb wall and I’m your newest follower!

    xo,
    Laurie :)

  45. This is such a cute idea! I have a feeling there will be a lot of these popping up in houses!

  46. Oh, I just love this idea! (and thanks so much for leaving a BOY inspired idea!) Can’t wait to make one for my oldest! He should be losing his first soon!

  47. Oh. My. Goodness. ADORABLE!!! It will be a few years before our little one loses a tooth, but I’m putting this in my mental rolodex. Or maybe it could just be a general fairy door? For the fairies to come and sprinkle her with fairy dust so she sleeps well? So cute!!!

  48. This is fantastic. What a fun idea. LOVE it.

  49. that is one of the most cutest things i’ve ever seen!!! oh, how cool!!

  50. What an awesome idea. I am in love with it. I am totally going to have to do this with my next loose tooth. Thanks for sharing this AH-mazing idea.

    Just Another Day in Paradise

  51. what a great idea! Love it.

  52. Kellie! I love it! What a lucky and adorable little boy you have!

  53. What a fun idea!

  54. Love this idea! I want to put one or two of these in my girls’ wall collage.

  55. I had to smile when I saw the first picture with Buzz Lightyear because it completely reminds me of my (almost) 3 year old boy. :) I really love the fairy door. What a wonderful idea to use a dollhouse door! We’re putting big kid rooms together right now and it would be really perfect!

  56. What an awesome, cute, idea. With a door she is more likely to actually show up on time, right?

  57. OMG! I love it. I will have to remember this for when my kids get old enough to loose teeth. I would love it if you linked your project up to More The Merrier Monday.

  58. Wow…….that is so cute!!! What a wonderful idea!!!

    Cara @ miscellaneousme.wordpress.com

  59. What an awesome idea! How fun for your little guy. It is amazing what we can find at Hobby Lobby! Love it!

    I am having an “every crafty blog” linky party and would love for you to come and join!

  60. Oh my gracious! You are amazingly creative! I would have never thought up a door for our TF! Love it!

  61. What a fun idea! My daughter would be in heaven with that! I am featuring it as part of my Idea List today!

    http://www.StashHappy.com

  62. How smart! My son would be much more motivated to get loose teeth out if we had one of those. I just posted a link to your shop on my facebook page. That Tooth Fairy Door is to cute not to share!

  63. Awesome idea and so adorable. My son is afraid of the tooth fairy (probably has something to do with The Rock) so our fairy makes a special trip while he is at school.

  64. OH, my goodness! This is brilliant! My son isn’t quite ready to start losing teeth, but I can’t wait to do this when he’s ready! Love it! I’m going to add this to my blog’s To Do List and share on FB.

  65. I LOVE THIS!! Such a fun idea. Thank you so much for sharing this idea!

  66. I’m SO in love with this Kellie!!

    Thanks for linking up! I featured your post in my wrap up today! http://tidymom.net/2011/im-lovin-it-wrap-up-4311/ Have a great weekend!

  67. seriously…..A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!! i love this and will be making one THIS week for when the big day happens in our house!!!!

  68. Very cute!

  69. SUPER cute!! I can’t wait to make one for my boys!

  70. Super cute! I love it. My older kids will miss out, but when those two little ones start getting loose teeth, I am on it! Thanks so much!!! (here from TidyMom)

  71. This is the sweetest idea…I will definitely do this for my kids. Thanks for the awesome inspiration :)

  72. What a great idea! I love it!

  73. This is the first Tooth Fairy Door I’ve ever seen – so cute! So is there enough room behind the door to place the tooth between door and wall? Is that where the fairy leaves the money too??

    I’m also a mom of B/G twins that will be turning 4 in June and their big sister will be turning 7 also in June.

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie

  74. We have an impending Tooth Fairy visit. This is just brilliant!!

  75. That’s so cute! When i was little me and my sisters would recieve a letter from the tooth fairy in teeny tiny handwriting. We each had a personal toothfairy and i think one of my sisters one was a boy fairy!

  76. This is the cutest idea! I hope I can remember it in 4 years when our tot starts losing her teeth.

  77. Not every wee door leads to a tooth fairy. ;)

  78. Precious!! What a fun idea!!!

  79. This is just about the cutest idea I’ve ever seen. I’m tucking it away for future use!

    Warmly, Michelle

  80. What a great idea. I wish I was that creative.

  81. I just found this on my search for tooth fairy ideas. We’re having our first tooth fairy visit next week, thanks to our almost-3-yr-old son having an injured tooth extracted. I LOVE the little door idea! So, so cute! Oh, and if you ever find yourself in need of good info on teeth, this Mom’s Guide has been super helpful to me during our tooth ordeal: http://www.1dental.com/moms-guide/. Thanks for this post. I’m getting really excited to be the tooth fairy for my first time! :)

  82. Love it, love it, love it!

    Thank you so much for the great idea! You inspired me to make one, too! http://smartbottomenterprises.blogspot.com/2011/07/tooth-fairy-door.html

    My kids love their new Tooth Fairy Door!

  83. Absolutely LOVE this idea! Very cute! Thank you for making it so easy for me to gather supplies to make my daughter a Tooth Fairy Door too!!!

  84. I will be buying this door from you as soon as we move into our new house! I love it!

  85. I think this is such a cute idea! I linked up this post on our blog!
