Our teachers taught us that with a few tools (like a little ribbon!) and a lot of creative thinking, anything is possible. This year, celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day with a small, handmade gift from the heart. Let us show you how!
How To Make This Teacher Appreciation Day Gift
Here’s What You’ll Need To Create This Sweet & Simple Gift
- Ball® Mason Jars
- 7/8” Black Jenna Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
- Strung Kraft Gift Tag
- Enclosure Card Envelope With Eyelet
- Paint (Pick your teacher’s favorite color!)
Here’s How To Put Your Gift Together
First, Paint Your Mason Jar
Using your favorite paint color, evenly cover the exterior of your jar with a single coat of paint. Once your jar has been painted, let it dry completely.
FYI: Before working with your jar, make sure it’s clean and free of any oils. A clean glass surface gives your paint a nice, smooth finish.
Next, Give Your Jar A Little Personality
After painting your jar, take your sandpaper and give it a little personality. Using the rough, abrasive side of your sandpaper, distress the painted surface of your jar.
Finally, Finish With Flair
Once the jar was properly distressed, go ahead and repot your plant into the jar.
After your plant has been placed in the jar, thread your ribbon through the eyelet holes of your gift tag and envelope. Finish it off with a simple and sweet bow.
FYI: Gift cards are a great addition to your homemade gift. Consider a small gift card to their favorite coffee shop or store.
