Happy First Day of School EVERYONE! Whether you are the student or the proud parents, we wish you a wonderful year ahead. I'm sure you are all as nervous and excited as the rest, just don't forget your teachers who love what they do and wish to inspire you.
Whether the first day or the first week of school, surprise them with something homemade. Our personal favorite is the "Colorful Pencil Holder". They start off as a bouquet, but the teacher has the option of turning it into a pencil/supply holder.
Crayons, colored pencils, or colorful sticks of your choice (we chose crayons from the dollar store)
Mason Jar, or another sort of glass container. Mason Jars can be found at Michael's, Target and even Publix. Check your local craft store in the glasswares or canning section at your local market.
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks, craft stores should be your first stop for this.
Fake Florals, you can find these at the dollar store and of course local craft store.
Raffia (string), can be found at Michael's in the floral wire section.
Chalkboard sign was bought at Michaels.
Start by having all your materials ready to go on your table. Mainly the hot glue gun with glue stick, mason jar, and crayons.
Next warm up that glue gun and while that warms up line up the crayon in a order you wish to have displayed on the mason jar.
You have to work very fast, because once the glue hits the glass it will begin to cool off easily. If this happens, just peal off the glue.
You'll want to lay a horizontal line of glue, the same length of the crayon. Then place the crayon on the line of glue.
Repeat this until you have covered the entire jar.
Next, build your bouquet of flowers and place in the jar.
Add a little blow of raffia (or any other ribbon of your choice) around the jar.
Lastly add your teacher's name to the mini chalkboard sign and place within the bouquet.
That's it! That's all there is to it. We hope you have a stellar year students, parents and teachers!!!
