4 Delightful DIY Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

In preparation for Teacher Appreciation Week in May (May 5th-9th for those of us never mark anything down on calendars) I created a mini, mini round-up of some 
DIY Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas
that I have shared over the years.

DIY Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

   Oh em gee! Can you guys believe that this Cork Board Flower Pot was 
THEE FIRST craft project I ever shared here on the blog? 
I'm sure the quality of the picture gave it away!

Seems like just yesterday I was a wittle, wittle tadpole in the world of craft blogging and well, now I'm just a toad--old, tired, and cranky. The only thing missing is the warts.

You can check out the full project details here.

I "tote-lly" loved sharing my first freebie over at Uncommon Designs last year as their new printable blog contributor. It was right around this time last year so the theme was "Teacher Appreciation".
Much to my surprise, the puny tags were a hit! You can get your own gift tags here.

My most recent contribution to Uncommon Designs is this charming, teacher-inspired printable apple gift wrap and mini note card.

I convinced myself that designing with apples is just as good as eating them!
An apple a day will keep the doctor away....or so they say.

Last but not least, continuing on with the fruit theme I recently shared these

A guaranteed "A+" for your spawn if you gift your teacher something sweet inside of these!

So there you have it-- a few different unique ways to give your thanks this year to your favorite educator!

PS. I know my blogging has been sparse and sporadic these days so thank you to those of you who stick around! There are a few things on the home front that are keeping me rather busy (aside from keeping a nine month old from climbing the walls) and a three month long work project that is finally coming to a head but is draining my soul. I know in Blogland they often say once blogging starts to feel like a chore then it's time to quit. I'm really working hard on keeping it fun and not beating myself up on not being on a regular blog schedule right now!

I had forgotten about your fun corkboard vase project. All your ideas are precious! Life is crazy on my end, too. Take it easy...or as easy as you can with your little one!

I'd love to hear from you!
