As part of our Michael’s Makers Challenge this month I came up with 5 teacher gifts that cost under $10! I loved this challenge, because teachers do so much for our kids and I feel strongly that appreciation should be given, but I don’t have a lot of cash to spend.
Gift #1 is this fun milk jar caddy!
I already had the glass milk jars in my cart when I found this little caddy in the wood section of the store. Three of the milk jars fit perfectly! I painted it with the chalky finish paint by Americana Decor and then used the brown wax to finish it off.
The jars don’t come with lids, but there are packs of lids to go with them in the same area. I used washi tape to cover the white lids. It was so easy to do and gives such a fun look to the boring white lids.
Fill the jars with the teachers favorite treats, or you could even do school supplies or fill them with flowers. The options are endless!
Gift idea #2 is this Redbox Gift. You can print the tag here.
Gift #3 is this cute watch. Find the printable here.
Gift #4 Free High Five ornemental chalkboard. Find the tutorial here.
Gift #5 is one of the awesome marquee lights by Heidi Swapp. Pick up one in the teacher’s last initial, or there’s also cute shapes that would light up the classroom!
