Teacher Appreciation – Say it with Flowers

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?

  1. 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. 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 :).

  3. That is a beautiful way to show appreciation for teachers!

  4. What a simple yet cute idea! Love it!

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

  6. 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. 🙂

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. That’s a thoughtful and very cute idea. I love that it’s a touch more than flowers!

  12. This is so cute! What a great idea.

  13. Great post! It’s so important to show the people who inspire us that we appreciate what they do everyday.

  14. Great idea! So important to show the people who inspire us we care.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.
