Believe it or not, the end of the school year is quickly approaching with only a week or two left for some schools. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about what to get your child’s teacher as an end of the year gift to say “thank you.” I’m giving you a head start in today’s post! Since last August, your child’s teacher has taken many students underneath his or her care, love, guidance, and teaching to bring them to this point.
Let teachers know how much you appreciate what they’ve done this past school year by gifting them a beautiful flower to brighten their day. You can also make it an annual flower, so the teacher will be reminded of your child year-after-year. For an extra special twist, I’ve created a label to add to your flower pot that reads, “Thanks for helping me grow this year!” Cue the cuteness because your child’s teacher is going to love it!
I used distressed mason jars instead of pots to create a worn, vintage appeal. You simply apply two coats of spray paint to the mason jars and use sand paper to distress the paint once they have fully dried to obtain this look.
After planting the flower, it’s time to make your sign for the flower pot. You’ll need two labels per toothpick. Stick a label on both sides of the toothpick so that the labels are flushed and evenly stick together.
Now you have the perfect gift for your child’s teacher as a way to say thank you for helping your child grow and blossom this school year. It’s also a great way and project to get your child’s hands a little dirty while they help you create this memorable gift!
The clip art used for these labels were designed by the talented artist, Dlolley’s Help.
