April 23, 2018
Teachers give so much of themselves throughout the school year, so why not give a little something in return? Whether it’s a gift for Teacher Appreciation Week or an end-of-school year teacher present, these seven DIY ideas are fun, easy to make, and totally celebrate your A+ teacher.
Celebrate a sweet teacher with a gift that’s just as sweet! Tiffany from Making the World Cuter created a free printable that’s just perfect for surprising your teacher with macaroons or other edible deliciousness! Deliver the treat in an adorable mini cake dome to up the “Aww!” factor.
Kids learn and grow so much in a school year, and teachers play such a huge part! Playing on that theme, Love the Day created a pretty flower box centerpiece filled with shrubbery – plus some fun treats – as a symbol of appreciation. There’s even a free printable to help you complete the DIY.
White chocolate. Sprinkles. Toffee crunch. What’s not to love?! Your teacher will be thrilled with the gift of a delicious homemade treat, like this White Chocolate Rainbow Sprinkle Toffee from Living Locurto. Deliver it in a cute container and include a card or handwritten thank you note. (Bonus: if you make enough, you get to enjoy it, too!)
They’re called cosmetics pouches, but honestly they can be used to hold a variety of things. Kylee Krizmanic used food coloring on canvas pencil cases and the results are stunning! Fill them with wrapped candies, gift cards or other little surprises before giving them to your teachers.
Looking for a gift your teacher can enjoy at home or in the classroom? This DIY from Giggles Galore is the answer! Simply paint a tea cup planter and add a variety of succulents to create a gift that adds a touch of nature to any environment and will make your teacher remember you fondly.
