Teacher Appreciation

Trusting Tigers door decoration
Pencil vase
I'm a little late posting this but here you go...

The class will be bringing flowers to the teachers on Tuesday.  As Room Mom, I wanted to make sure they had a place to hold their flowers.  I found this idea online, so here you go:  This cost approx. $15 for two vases.  I found 2 jumbo cans of Campbell's soup at Big Lots for $1.50 each.  They were 50 oz.  The Dollar Tree had colored pencils, 10 for $1.00 The large soup can needed 48 pencils!  The ribbon was from Michael's.  I would recommend a smaller can if you are making this as a gift from one child.
Directions:  Empty, clean and dry the soup can.  Place on it's side, put a small amount of hot glue near the top and bottom and place a few pencils in place, press.  Continue all around the can.  Place a rubber band around it to hold in place.  Then put a drop of hot glue in the middle and attach the ribbon.  Wrap around and tie with a bow.
For a finishing touch, create a sign to put into the vase, "Thanks for helping us bloom!"  or if you have a class photo write, "Look how we've grown!  We appreciate you!"
This bouquet of flowers will be sure to brighten their day! 
Doesn't take long to assemble!
