DIY Teacher Gift: Apple Candy Jar

And it’s back to school we go! As I’m sure you can relate, our household is in full back-to-school mode as we run around town acquiring the latest and greatest school supplies to complete our checklist. Maybe it’s the artist in me talking, but I have to say, I do find great joy and inspiration in seeing what fun patterns, animals, and trends make it onto this year's assortment of notebooks! While my daughter is rifling through deciding which folder will make it into her backpack, you can find me browsing the styles and thinking about sachet inspiration.

Glitter and unicorn notebooks aside, it’s always important this time of year to show gratitude to the amazing individuals who passionately teach our children day in and day out. As your superstar student begins a new school year, give thanks and appreciation to your new teacher with a DIY gift that you and your children can create together. Pair it with the scent of fresh apples with our new Apple Pickin' Scented Sachet Envelope for a treat your new teacher will love.

 Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Red Craft Paint
  • Brown Craft Paint
  • Ivory Craft Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Small Terra Cotta Pot with Lid
  • Wooden Acrorn Dowl Cap
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Green Felt
  • Scissors

Yours Truly,
