Teacher Appreciation – Say it with Flowers

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: May 7, 2014 | Categories: Arts and Crafts, DIY, Health and Fitness, Wordless Wednesday

This is Teacher Appreciation week at my son’s school and today is flower day. It could be a single flower from you own garden, a bunch of wildflowers, a flower(s) from your local grocery store or flowers delivered from a florist. Just show your appreciation for your teacher with flowers.

Here’s one of the things my son and I decided to do for his teacher for teacher appreciation week…

flower pot from a watering can teacher appreciation idea

What you’ll need:

  • Watering Can – Walmart for $7.99
  • Flower/Plant – Walmart for $7.99
  • Gardening Gloves – Walmart for $4.99
  • Vinyl Monogram Letter – Hobby Lobby for $2.99
  • Potting soil and gravel for bottom of can I already had.

This is one of those DIY’s that’s pretty self-explanatory. Just add rocks (gravel, etc.) for drainage (although holes can be drilled in the bottom of the watering can) and some potting soil. Add your plant/flower, and more potting soil and water.

Add a monogram letter on the front (I put one on both sides) with the letter of your child’s teacher’s last name.

And add a pair of gardening gloves to give it a finished look. Plus who couldn’t use an extra pair of gardening gloves?

What teacher appreciation gift have you made for your child’s teacher this year?

    That is a really cute idea!! I think it is great to show teachers they are appreciated for all the hard work they do through the year!

  2. Personally, I love flowers, so this is a great idea 🙂

    Love this idea Donna!

    Now that the kids are teens they’re buying a book, dedicating it to a teacher who inspired them and donating it to the school library.

    But something like this is more personable. I know my daughter would like to make something like this for a couple teachers.

    Thanks for sharing this idea hun! Hope all is well :).

  4. This is such a simple and lovely gift idea for teachers.

  5. Such a cute idea for a lot of things – baby showers, birthdays, mother’s day, etc., too!

    Love the cute set up you created! We gave Reese’s cups this year.

    That is an adorable idea. Since I am my boy’s teacher I think they should all make me one so I can decorate for Spring. 🙂

    It’s so funny, my son is now obsessed with flowers. He would love this gift for his teacher.

  14. Love how you used the monogram letter – cute and personalized. I’m sure that bought a smile to his teacher’s face. I homeschool my daughter so it’s a bit different for me.

  15. Great gift idea! I’m the teacher so I haven’t given myself anything but a pair of “duckies” for my feet!

  16. Tammy says:

    Seeing as we homeschool I am the teacher – my appreciation gift is having my daughter graduate high school 🙂 I’m all done officially next Saturday!

    This is a great idea. I have been wanting to do something for the teachers since school is starting back up tomorrow. This might work perfectly.

    This is adorable. I never did something as fancy but I would a lot of times bring fresh flowers from my yard to the teacher.
