Being the tooth fairy must fun, but also a bit tricky. It’s not always easy to fish out tiny baby teeth from under pillows and out of water glass. To help the tooth fairy out we make a sweet jar that you can, like its big brother, leave out in the bathroom or bedroom. No more fairies fumbling in the dark!
You need PET bottles, we have used two different sizes, spray paint, scissors, acrylic paint and a small brush.
1. Start by removing the labels and then spray paint the bottles. We’ve talked about how to handle spray paint before, so we’re giving you the short version this time. Care for good ventilation, read the instructions on the can carefully and if you buy a new colors choose the new water based spray paint.
2. Once the paint has dried, we cut the bottles in a nice height. We have used a pinking shears to get a fun edge, but you can just as well cut it straight.
3. Finally, paint eyes and mouth on the jar with black acrylic paint. We also gave ours a little color on the cheeks.
Our sweet tooth fairy jars are done and ready to come in use. The big one is maybe a bit big to put teeth into, but it works great for toothbrushes and toothpaste. Now we just need to wait for new lost teeth and the next visit from the little tooth fairy.
Looking for other things to do with PET bottles? Why not try these cute cat plantpots? Or our recycled bracelet? With a bit of pations, or a lot, you can even make your very own chandelier!
