Teacher Appreciation Week – Gifts

11 Feb

We made this super cute gift for J’s teachers this week.  They are easy to make and just adorable if you ask me.

Teacher gift hearts 2  

These can be made for any event or holiday, not just Valentine’s day.  The themes are endless.

I purchased almost every item from the dollar store.  Total price is 6.00 each.  I used spray paint to make it easier for myself but it cost a bit more for spray paint so it could be even cheaper if you painted them by hand.

  • Clay pot 2/1.00
  • Glass Fish Bowl 1.00
  • Clay lid .79 (Michaels)
  • Wooden ball .59 (Michaels)
  • Ribbon 1.00 for the roll
  • Stick on Hearts 1.00 for a package of 100
  • Candy 1.00
  • Paint 5.79 (Michaels)

Then I added a cute saying for the tag and stuck it inside.  I just love how they turned out.

Paint the clay pots and tops red.  Paint the wood balls white.  Glue the fish bowl to the top of the clay pot.  Glue the wooden ball to the top of the lid.  Glue ribbon around the pot and stick on the hearts.  Fill with candy and add a tag if you want.  So easy!
