DIY Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

The end of the school year is getting close y’all. That means it’s time to show the teachers in our lives how much we appreciate all that they do. I’ve put together a couple of ideas for you to give to your teachers! These are two super easy (and inexpensive) ways to show our teachers we love them!

teacher gift potted plant in metal bucket with chalkboard labels

First up, this darling potted plant! I found a couple of metal buckets with chalkboard labels painted on them at Walmart for just $4. These bright red daisies were so cheery and their size was perfect for my buckets. I just kept them in their original plastic pots and added tissue paper to help hide the edges of their container. I ended up using a white paint marker to write “Thanks for helping me grow!” onto the chalkboard labels.

While I was at Walmart picking up the metal buckets, I found these sweet little pineapple tumblers, too, (just $2.97!). I wanted some kind of container to fill with candy, and when I saw these adorable tumblers, they just begged to be filled with gold-wrapped candy. Lindt truffles with gold wrappers were perfect for this, but miniature Twix or Hershey’s Kisses with gold foil would be great, too.

I made a little tag that says, “Teachers like you are sweet to have!”, printed it onto card stock and attached it to the tumblers.
