If you’re the typical mom, you struggle each year finding the right Christmas gift for your children’s teather. Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it can be difficult to find a gift that is economical, functional, and shows that you actually put some thought into it. Last year we made 6″ decorative tiles using vinyl lettering, with a quote about teachers. This year, however, we made customized pencil holders that turned out to be really cute!
What you need:
- Small Glass Jar (I got these at Walmart)
- Some ribbon (I chose red because it’s a Christmas gift)
- Some pencils (Got these at the dollar store)
- Custom Vinyl Lettering (available at wallstamps.net)
First, you have to get your glass jars, so you know what size of vinyl lettering to get. I got glass jars that were about 4×4″ square. Next, you need to get your custom vinyl letters to put the design on the glass. If you email email@example.com, she can make the lettering to fit whichever glass container size you select (but it’s better not to go smaller than 4×4).
After you have your vinyl, you simply affix it to the glass jar. Tie the ribbon around the top, and fill it full of pencils. Now, you have a gift that was economical, thoughtful, and sure to get lots of use and attention by your child’s teacher.
