How is it already time for end of year teacher gifts? I don't know about you, but my kids have some of the most caring, considerate teachers and I try to give them something handmade along with a gift card each year to show our thanks. Over the next week or so, I'll share some favorites I've created.
These pencil jars make a wonderful keepsake gift that is pretty, usable AND eco-friendly!
Any glass bottle with a pretty shape will work. First, I wash and sanitize the bottle with a little bleach and water and let it dry. Then it's time to start altering!
For the coordinating pencils, I used to cover them with paper but found washi/paper tape adheres better and makes sharpening the pencils easier.
