Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

Sharing is caring!

A bouquet of yellow and white flowers in a yellow vase with "abc" and "thank you" text, accompanied by an apple and books, designed as a teacher appreciation gift.

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. What an important week. I hope that everyone remembers to take the opportunity to tell your kids teachers Thank You because teachers really are amazing. Our school does a really good job appreciating our teachers. They have a special activity planned every day of the week including door decorating, favorite meals, favorite snacks, etc so the teachers feel extra special. We are very lucky to have two great teachers right now so I am excited for my kids to give them their teacher appreciation gift.

Teacher Appreciation Gift

Mason Jar
Black Vinyl
Cricut Machine
Card stock
Yellow Paint
Paint Brush

Foam brush, empty mason jar, and acrylic paint bottle arranged as a teacher appreciation gift on a plain background.

1. Paint your Mason Jar Yellow. I ended up adding a little bit of orange into the yellow paint to get a more school bus yellow than a sunshine yellow. I did one coat on the inside and one coat of paint on the outside.

2. Let your jar dry.
3. With your Cricut Machine, cut "ABC" on Vinyl and cut a tag out with your card stock. You can print Thank You on, or write with Sharpie.

4. Apply ABC Vinyl to your jar.
5. Wrap twine around jar and then attach Thank You Tag.
6. Add favorite yellow flowers of choice. I got these flowers at Hobby Lobby.

A jar of yellow and white flowers with a "thank you" tag, placed on a wooden surface near a globe and a vintage suitcase, serves as the perfect teacher appreciation gift.
7. Tell your teacher how much you appreciate her!

This craft is really easy to make that your child could make it for their teacher. Depending on the age of your child, they would probably need some help with the Vinyl but any older age child would be just fine! This could be a great gift any time of year but especially Back to School, Teacher Appreciation Week or End of School Year.
