Teacher Gift

Earlier, I shared this simple Teachers Gift idea over at Skip To My Lou and I totally forgot to share it here for you if you missed it.

I purchased a really inexpensive clay flower pot.  You can find these almost anywhere.  I just picked mine up at the local nursery where I also picked up this sweet Gerber Daisy.  Then you are going to paint your pot.  I used a Chalkboard Spray Paint from Rustoleum.  It works so great and is so easy to use.  Just tape off the area of the pot you do not want painted with the chalkboard spray paint.  I used painter’s tape and some newspaper.  Once you have it all taped off and sealed spray that baby!  One or two coats works just fine and then let it dry.

After the paint has dried, if you want to add another color like gold…tape off the chalkboard painted area and cover with newspaper so that the gold spray paint does not get on it.  Then spray on some fun color!  I chose to do the rim of mine gold.  Let it dry and remove the tape.

Then plant your flower into the pot and add this cute little teacher tag.  I simply printed it out and glued it onto some black card stock.  Then to get it to stand in the plant, I taped it to a wooden craft toothpick.  This seriously does not get any easier.  Then write the teacher’s name on the pot or an inspirational word!

I also like to give our teachers a little gift card so they can use it for a night out to dinner or a movie. I figure they deserve a nice treat after all their hard work for the year. Good teachers are irreplaceable!

It is that time of year again…time to start thinking about the end of the school year and the awesome lazy days of summer. Do you get your children’s teachers a farewell gift? We always do, but like to keep it simple and useful. Here are some great ideas that you can use and personalize to your own needs. Throw in a nice gift card and I think any teacher would be happy to receive it.
