I don’t know about where you live, but for us, tomorrow starts the beginning of the NEW school year! CRAZY!! Where did the summer go?! I am looking forward to getting back to a normal schedule, but gonna miss having Parker home throughout the day!
I always like to make a little something for Parker’s teacher every year & of course, this year was no exception to the rule! I wanted to share with you the quick & easy DIY Back-To-School gift I made this year, which was inspired by this project I found on Pinterest.
I bought a large can of soup & a package of pencils (I ended up using 30 pencils total). I tore the label off the soup can, emptied it, and cleaned it out well.
I used a hot glue gun to adhere the pencils to the soup can…
I just ran a bead of hot glue down the length of the can & then placed the pencil on the can, making sure to line the end of the pencil up with the bottom of the can.
I just repeated this process all the way around the entire can until it was completely covered in pencils.
I bought a bouquet of daisies at Walmart for about $5.00 and trimmed the stems to fit the new vase appropriately. I added water & the plant food that was provided with the bouquet into the vase before arranging the flowers the way I wanted them.
Then I just added a cute little ribbon to complete the look!
I love how easy this project was to complete & how adorable it turned out! I don’t know about Parker’s teacher, but if I were a teacher, I would absolutely LOVE to get something like this from one of my students!! I could see myself keeping the vase on my desk, continually fill it with flowers throughout the school year, & smiling every time I look at it! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial!
