By Tawnya Burket April 25, 2022
As the school year comes to a close Teacher Appreciation Day and Week present an opportunity to Celebrate our kids Teachers and say thank you for all they do! In honor of Teacher Appreciation my daughter and I created these fun and easy DIY flower pot gifts for the special teachers in her life. This is a great idea for a personalize teacher gift your kids can make that will not break the bank.

Supplies need:
  • Terra cotta flower pot - big enough to fit crayons around it
  • Box of crayons - 24
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Fabric glue and super glue - or hot glue
  • Paint marker / paint
  • A potted flower, plant or succulent plus some extra soil - I used a pansy
  • A sticker to attach the ribbon to the pot

How to:
  1. First write the saying Thank you for helping me grow! on the top rim of the pot with your paint marker, which dries super fast. On the bottom, write your child's name and the date with the month / year, so his or her teacher will always know who made this special gift.
  2. Next measure the ribbon to fit around the pot. Lay the ribbon on paper or newspaper and use fabric glue to secure 10 to 14 crayons on the ribbon, spacing them out as far as you'd like, while leaving room at each end of the ribbon to add a sticker to cover up the ends once it's wrapped around the pot. The crayons will need about a half an hour to dry. 
  3. Once dry, put super glue on the back side of the ribbon and wrap it around the pot and secure with a little glue and the sticker. Flip the pot over and, using the fabric glue, adhere the bottom of the crayons to the pot so they stay in place. Let dry upside down for another 10 minutes.
  4. Flip the pot, add the soil and the flower. 

Enjoy this fun craft with your kiddo and share a flower pot of thanks with a special teacher!
