Teacher Appreciation

As I perused Pinterest in search of ideas for Teacher Appreciation week, I came across this (no direct link to original source) and was drawn to the color pencil flower vase. Now, this was before Adelyn's arrival when I was checking things off my list(s) like a crazy woman and trying to keep myself uber-busy as to not dwell on still being pregnant (40 weeks and counting)

Most importantly though, I just wanted to do a little something special for Jack's teachers because they are so great and they deserve it!

As the school year comes to a close, this could also be used given as an end of the year gift for that special teacher in your life!

I'm not reinventing the wheel here...just a cute little project (that you can find all over Pinterest) that I thought I would share.

Vase (dollar store)
Color Pencils (dollar store...2 packs/vase)
Glue Gun 
(these were flowers I had around my house...we bought fresh flowers on our way to school)

This took me maybe 30 minutes to make two vases. 
Such a simple, fun and (could be) last minute gift idea.
And who doesn't like to get flowers?
