Teacher Gifts

 It's that time of year again, the end of the school year. Boy how this year flew!! I always give my kids teachers gift cards, but this year their getting a little something along with it. Thanks to my friend Debbie @ http://debbie-debbiedoos.blogspot.com/ I'm copying one of her creative ideas!!

 I loved this idea. Painting plain clay pots with chalkboard paint and adding a stencil to it. Then I hot glued a little twine around the rims.

               Aren't they cute! I think I'll be making one for me too!

Now that I got that done I am going to sit and look through this. My favorite magazine!
Hope your week is off to a great start! It's been pretty hot here, today it hit 90!!  As always I look forward to your visits, Martina

I learned a LONGGGGG time ago...make myself one! Otherwise, you never get back to it. And then you have none of your own creations. And that is a good one!

I'm right beside you at Wow Us Wednesday! Love these little pots. Is that a new Country French? I haven't seen it recently...usually Lowe's has them. Have a great rest of the week...

Your kids teachers are going to be so thrilled to get these lovely gifts. Our school year only finishes in December so I have lots of time to store up all these creative ideas for teachers from fellow bloggers! Have a lovely day. x Sharon

First Debbie, now you! Your pots turned out great, I love them! I've been thinking about teacher gifts as well (although we don't get out until the 23rd) & I just may steal this idea from you girls.

Linda said...

Those teachers will be very happy...those turned out great! I think bloggers give me the best ideas!!
Have a great day...try and stay cool!

Neat project! I don't have teachers to give gifts to anymore. :( My kids are in middle and high school and parent stop doing that stuff around here after elementary school. But,that doesn't mean that I can't make them as gifts for friends! Looks super nice.

Your flower pots look super cute! Lovely idea for a teacher.
Hugs, Cindy
