Teacher gift is finally done!!!!
Wanted to get something for my son's 4K teacher because he is such a handful and she is so patient with him, she deserves something awesome!!! So I decided on a pencil vase came out costing me about 5 bucks...I bought 2 20 packs of cheap pencils at wal mart $.63 a piece...also got abc ribbon from wal mart too...it cost 1.00 for the whole spool!!!
So then I ventured over to the dollar tree and found a perfect vase and small picture frame. I also picked up some fake flowers to complete the look. I then very carefully hot glued the pencils on the vase very close almost touching each other I just glued the top and bottom of the pencil. Pardon my lovely leg picture lol
Once all those are finished and glued tightly together, I then cut some of the awesome ribbon and tied a cute bow around the pencil vase gluing it at the bow and the back to keep it in place! You could probably glue it all the way around but I was running out of glue lol
I then just took a sheet of printer paper cut it to size and decorated it with said teachers name...replaced the paper and hot glued the back of the frame to the pencils so that it can still stand but is stuck to the vase as well. Inserted the flowers and this is the cutest little (I'm sorry my son is a butt hole) gift! ;-)
Since my son was so unbelievably bad at school today and I had to pick him up early I think she will be delighted to get this little gift tomorrow!
