Today we are making the cutest bottled fairy dust necklace craft for kids of all ages. This is a really fun slumber party idea or homemade gift to give to a best friend.
Bottled Fairy Dust Necklace Craft
These fairy dust necklaces are like bottling up stars! My older tween calls this her Galaxy Necklace, and my elementary-aged kiddo calls it her fairy dust!
Either way, these are simple kids crafts to make and wear that are sure to bring a smile! This craft is especially good for tweens and teens.

*If you are doing this craft with younger kids, consider plastic bottles and a break-away necklace string for safety.
To set up this craft, fill small bowls with food dye and water.
We wanted this to look like a starry sky or galaxy, so we used deep blue, deep green and a deep purple color.
Next, shred the cotton balls into tiny bits.
Using the tweezers, dip the bits of cotton into the bowl of dye, and then insert it into your jar.
Layer the cotton colors with glitter and plain white cotton bits. This part is so fun because you can go with whatever pattern or color choice you want!
Add several drops of essential oil to the top of your jar before you put the cap on it.
These necklaces work great as essential oil necklace diffusers. The scents diffuse through the cap throughout the day!
Using a hot glue gun attach the starry fairy dust jar onto a necklace so you can wear it.
A necklace that smells great, looks good, and will be the talk of the class.
