Teacher Appreciation Gift: Pencil Vase

The school year has just started and your child most likely has a new teacher now. I know many like to give gifts at the end of the year, but now is a fun and unexpected time to thank the person who spends just as much time with your kids as you.  Why not show your appreciation with a simple Teacher Appreciation Gift!  This Pencil Vase is easy to put together and won’t cost you much either.  It’s a great way to say thank you! Plus pencils are super cheap this time of year at most major retailers.

40-50 Yellow Wooden Pencils
Artificial Flowers

Best of all your child’s teacher can display this pretty vase on their desk for the entire school year.

What do you think? Do you give teacher gifts?


  1. I homeschool, so no teacher gifts for me. But I would stick a general gift card in there as well because teachers always need to buy supplies.

  2. How clever is this! You could get everything at the dollar store and let the kids go to town on this! Amazing.

  3. This is such a wonderful idea! I know my children will be excited to make this for their teachers. This would be a great gift for anyone to me!

  4. This is SUCH a cute idea! I love how pretty it is and totally something anyone can do! Such a great idea!

  5. It looks like a fun project to make together with the kids. While school supplies are still on sale, I should run out and stock up.

  6. Oh, I love this idea! I want one for my own desk. Would it be tacky for me to have my son to make one for his homeschool teacher?!?

  7. This is such a cute idea! I bet it is so fun to make as well! I bet any teacher would love this gift no matter the time of year!

  8. Such a cute idea! It’s always nice to show teachers you care!

  9. Excellent and really adorable idea. Also not too hard to make so this is one I would do. I think my teens would be embarrassed right now if I did that. But sharing with my SIL. She will love this.

  10. Omg that is one cute gift!!! My daughter has her open house coming up. This would be so cute to bring to her teacher
