Teacher Appreciation Gift ... You've got the "WRITE" stuff!

For Cole's teacher I wanted to do something that was more manly ... LOL you can only give a guy teacher so many things for the classroom.  I found this easy vase glued with pencils on The Blackberry Vine.   She has a free printable that is so cute but I ran out of time when I was making this, I so wish I had printed it!  I also used ribbon I had on hand but her's is so much cutier but again I'm going with manly.  I filled his pencil vase full of snack size candy bars.

Supplies:
Glass Vase (Pick up Dollar Store)
2 1/2 boxes Pencils (Dollar Store - Around 37 pencils)
Ribbon (You can find School themed at Micheal's or plain at Dollar Store)
Wood Dye Cut School Themed (found at Micheal's)
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
2-3 bags Mini Candy Bar's (Dollar Store has name brand candy, I've seen flowers and other things also.)

Steps:
  1. Take a pencil and put a strip of hot glue on it and then glued it down to the vase.  (I made sure the pencil label was the glue side, also make sure straight mine was a little crooked).
  2. Once all pencil's glued on tie a ribbon around it (I wish I used a thicker ribbon).
  3. Hot glue down some wood dye cuts on the pencils.  
  4. Fill to the brim with mini candy bars.




Another super easy Idea that is great thoughtful gift!

  1. What a cute idea - and they can all use the pencils! I spend quite a bit of time sharpening pencils for my son's 3rd grade teacher.

  8. Neat!! I'll have to remember these ideas for next year when there are only 2 teachers! Last year we had 6 to give to, this year is 3 and will finally be down to 2 when they're in 1st and 2nd grades! :-)

  10. Both my boys have male teachers this year so will need to find gifts that are a little more appropriate this year, everything is always a little too fluffy for guys!
