Teacher Gifts

One of my good friends asked me to gather some teacher gift ideas.  I have seen a ton of adorable ideas around blogland and was happy to oblige. 

So I made a pinterest board.  :)  I love you pinterest!

Sooo, if you want to check out some last minute teacher gifts, there you go! 

Now, all this teacher gift searching couldn't have come at a better time.  This week is my son's last week of preschool and I had full intentions on sending him with a little something something for his teacher.  But what that something was, I had no clue.  So I basically gathered my favorite things from my pinterest board and made this.

How fun!  It was super easy too.  All I did was hot glue a bunch (as in about 70) pencils to a pot, planted some flowers (mums), glued on a bow, and stuck in a cute little tag.

And for you more visual peeps...

And what is a teacher gift tutorial without a free printable?
Click on the image to make it larger, save, and then print as a 8x10 on cardstock.  This will make your circles 2.5" because that is the size of my circle punch. :)  Then I just hot glued it to an extra pencil and stuck it in my plant. 

I think it turned out pretty cute.  I hope she loves it and can find a good home for it in her classroom.

As always I'm linking to these great parties and events:
