Easy Teacher Gifts and my LIVE TV Debut!

Easy Teacher gifts

Looking for a little gift for your kiddo to bring to their new teacher? Last week I shared some super easy, super inexpensive and dare I say… super cute Last-Minute Teacher Gifts (on LIVE TV!!) here on Dallas’ local morning show, The Broadcast. They each can be made for around 10 bucks! Check out these simple ideas…

One thing I will remember for my next appearance is that 5 minutes goes by REALLY fast. In fact I had one idea that I didn’t get to at all. That’s ok because now I can share that with you here this week, but first take a look at these great little gifts for teachers that made it on air.

Easy Candy Dishes Teacher gifts

Read one for the details and more last-minute teacher gift ideas.

By simply adding stickers and adhesive vinyl to various acrylic containers, we turned pantry basics into sweet candy dishes.

Stickers and Plaid Washi Tapee give this Canister more masculine look

A Silhouette Digital Cutting Machine makes the decorating options endless.

Easy Tissue Box cover Teacher gifts

Then we turned to tissue boxes, a must have for every teacher’s desk. These are all made using paint and paint markers.

Clockwise from top left:

Amber used some of our favorite Handmade Charlotte Stencils (on sale right now) with Martha Stewart All-Purpose Paint, Chalkboard Paint
and paint markers to create this Bamboo version.

We used a polka-dot stencil from Handmade Charlotte with Slick Neon Pink Dimensional Paintto dress up this chic lucite tissue box.

These Tissue Box Houses are cute to begin with but some line-rule and doodle graphics push it over the edge.

You know we are hot for neon and neutral! A stencil and paint markers made this simple project on-trend.

Teacher Gift Ideas

But the best of all is the beautiful rainbow house that Clare painted for her own new teacher, no DIY required.

No teacher expects a gift to start off the new year but if a small handmade surprise can make a shy little girl this excited about heading off to school, it has to be a good idea!
