Start the school year off on your teacher’s good side with this super sharp back to school gift! A simple and easy craft to do with kids before that first bell rings. Gather a few supplies around the house and be ready to show your teacher appreciation!
- A rinsed and cleaned empty spaghetti jar
- Several packs of unsharpened pencils
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- White card stock paper
- Printable tags found below
- White canvas tote*
We love that this craft involves repurposing something that would otherwise be tossed or recycled. Of course any round vase or jar will do. Working quickly, put horizontal lines of glue around the top portion and bottom portion of the jar. Work to cover a little space at a time so the glue doesn’t harden. Press the pencils, eraser end up, on the jar. Continue until you’ve covered the circumference of the jar. Using hot glue, make a ring around the pencils, about half way down. Press your ribbon into the glue to adhere to the pencils. Print the tag below on white card stock paper and tack on ribbon with a dot of hot glue. Now fill with some fresh flowers to brighten your new teacher’s day!
You can really be the teacher’s pet by printing the large circle above on iron-on transfer paper. Pick up an inexpensive canvas bag from your local craft store and make a great tote for your teacher.
