School ends this week for some and next week for others. Our school year ends next week, but I can get so busy lately that I decided to be ahead of the game and deliver our teacher gifts this week.
I went searching Pinterest for ideas and found this cute potted plant:
While I do think it’s adorable, I wanted something a little more neutral for the teachers to have in their homes to care for all summer long. So I decided to use the idea as inspiration, but put my own spin on it.
Since I really like the yellow ruler idea and didn’t want to purchase rulers, I decided to use FREE paint stir sticks from Home Depot and make them into “rulers”. I had the kids paint them all in Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Arles.
With the quality of coverage Chalk Paint® provides, it only took 1 coat on both sides. (And yes, we used empty applesauce containers to hold the paint. Nothing goes unused around our house!)
After the kiddos went to bed, the hubby drew lines on the stick to mimic a ruler and we only wrote about 9 inches worth of lines. Remember: it doesn’t have to be perfect to be thoughtful!
On the back I wrote: “Thank you for helping me grow” and had the kids write each of their teachers name and their name. I then stuck a ruler in each potted plant. Now they have a cute pot and can remove the “ruler” whenever they like.
The cost for all 6 potted plants, including pots, plants, potting soil and supplies was $26 total for 6 gifts, or about $4.33 per gift. I opted for already painted pots, but you could certainly decrease your cost even further by purchasing non-painted terracotta pots and that would bring your cost down to approximately $2.83 per gift.
I’d say that’s a pretty wallet friendly gift!
