Easy Homeade Gifts For Teachers
When the kids were in school, my husband and I volunteered quite a bit. After being a chaperon, PTA chair, office help and baker, we gained an appreciation for the teacher’s and their dedication. Every year the kids make their teacher something special.
I love to give back in any way I can, even if just in a small way. The kids and I love to make homemade gifts for their teachers and principal. This year, we decided to make this really cute and clever Simple Crayon Vase Craft . It is so easy to make, very affordable and the end result is super cute.
All you need to make your Simple Crayon Vase Craft is:
- A small vase (we got ours from the Dollar store)
- 48 Crayons (you may need less or more, depending on the size of your vase)
- A glue gun or glue dots
Step 1: Attach a glue dot, or a small dab of the glue gun onto each crayon. Line up the crayon with the bottom of the vase. Repeat until you have covered the whole vase.
Step 2: Cut a length of ribbon to fit around the vase and tie a bow. Fold it in half and make a crease. Attach a glue dot or spot of glue from the glue gun where you made the crease. This will keep the ribbon from slipping.
Step 4: Bring your ribbon around to the front and tie a bow. You may want to put a spot of glue on the sides if they seem to slip down. Now you are ready to fill your vase with some flowers or a nice succulent and give to your favorite teacher!
