Today's teacher appreciation week gift begins with the letter 'E' for educational. We were asked to provide school supplies to the teacher if possible.
I was inspired by this post from Happy Clippings that I had seen floating around Pinterest.
Miss M and I went to Staples and she showed me the pencils they use for writing in the classroom. We picked up a box of 48 for under $6.
I have a few food jars at home that have been washed and set aside to use for crafts. One of them was tall and thin without curves in it so it was perfect for this project. I used a hair elastic (because I couldn't find a single elastic band in the entire house) and then popped each pencil in-between the hair elastic and the jar. Then I tied a simple ribbon around it, filled the jar with water and popped in some pretty flowers.
