Teacher Appreciation Week— A Candle Bouquet!

 TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK is underway and one of the things our PTA has suggested is that the students bring in a flower for their teacher. So here are the flowers I made.

  1.  A Candle in a cup (My friend Carolyn got these adorable "grow" candles at Pottery Barn a while ago, but you can use any potted candle you like. )
  2. A Flower and Brad (I used some from the scrapbooking section in the Craft store)
  3. Wired Yarn Rope (available at Joann's Fabrics)
  4. Treat Bag
  5. Paper Shreds
  6. Gift Tags

TO MAKE THE LEAVES— I simply wrapped the green Wired Yarn Rope around the treat bag and made two big loops for leaves then twisted the rope together in the back.
ATTACHING THE FLOWER— I placed the Brad through the Flower and poked the BRad through the top of the treat bag to attach.
THE GIFT TAG— I typed and printed a message to the teacher, cut out the words and glued them onto the tag.

Teachers, thanks for helping our kids grow!
