I haven’t quite finished all of the Teacher Appreciation Gifts that I’m giving out this year, but I thought I’d share some that I’ve done in the past, and in a day or two, I’ll share with you the ones from this week.
However, this is one that I just finished yesterday, but I also made a couple of these for the beginning of the school year, last August. I did do a couple of things different, I used gray vinyl for the name this time, and I used different wire. Also, I left the “sharpened” part of the pencil as bare wood, it was by accident, but it works, cause that’s what a pencil really looks like anyway right? 🙂
I kind of really like the pencils with the gray vinyl, better than the black. If you’d like to see how I did the other one, you can find it here.
Last year I made a Pencil Bouquet for the Teacher Appreciation Gifts, and they seem to have been a big hit, so I thought I’d share that with you again as well. If you’d like to know more about how I did it, click here.
This is what I gave our teachers at the end of the year last year. It would work great with hand sanitizer for teacher appreciation, or for a beginning of the school year gift as well. You can use it however you’d like. For more details, click here.
What are you doing for teacher appreciation this year?

I LOVE your idea of the pencil flowers! We did that for our secretary appreciation day. I cut ours out in foam and had my students hole punch and put them on the pencils. It was a great fine motor craft and they turned out Amazing!
