by Amy Bowerman

Are you looking for a fun and unique Teacher Gift?  You need look no further than your recycling bin!  This Teacher Gift Garden of supplies was created with many items from my recycling bin and other items I had on hand.  Whether it’s given as a Teacher Christmas gift, Teacher Appreciation gift, or an end of the school year gift it is sure to make any Teacher feel special.

All you need is a clementine box, glass jars, spray paint, glue, and floral wire to create this thoughtful teacher gift.

Teacher Supplies Garden Paper Flowers

Paper Flowers made from Child’s Artwork

The paper flowers were created using my son’s artwork and school papers.  I threw in some Dr. Seuss book pages and Core’dinations card stock for good measure.  You can find a full tutorial on how to create the Flowers and alter the jars and clementine crate HERE.

Teacher Supplies Garden Magnets

“Great Teacher’s Teach from the Heart!”

Pickle jars were rescued from the recycling bin and given a coat of Krylon Glitterblast, ribbon, and a handmade tag.  Now all you need are school supplies…don’t forget the Sharpie’s! (Teacher’s LOVE Sharpie’s)

A Special Message for Teacher

Create a special message for Teacher with lined school papers, pens, markers, and crayons.  This is a great way to get the kids involved in the project.  You could even include their own drawings for an extra personal touch!

Teacher Supplies Garden Mod Podge

Create your own Custom Magnets

All you need is Mod Podge and Pro-Mag Magnet board to create your own custom magnets.  Attach a strip of Magnet board to the front of the clementine box to give your magnets a place to stick.  You could even include extra magnets with the supply garden so that they can be changed with the seasons or your Teacher can add their own!

The clementine box was painted with Krylon Magnetic paint and embellished with wrapping paper scraps and Mod Podge.  The possibilities are endless when creating a Teacher supplies garden.  You can be creative, have fun, and add personal touches specific to your teacher.  I never thought I’d say this but I can’t wait till the end of the school year!  I’m just so excited to give this Supply garden to my son’s teacher…hope she likes it! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
