Are you looking for a fast easy teacher gift? Time is running out to make something for those great teachers who spend so much time with your kids. Even though we contribute to the class gift, I always like to make them something special from each of my kids. And since this year i'm not baking, I put together some store bought goodies with a dressed up tin.
I purchased the clear paint cans at Michael's, they are the smallest size available. I bought the Hershey nuggets chocolates at Target. I cut patterned paper into 7/8 inch x 3 inch strips. Once all my strips were cut, I wrapped them around each nugget and secured with my hot glue gun.
I decorated the tin about halfway up from the bottom. No need to cover it completely because the decorated nuggets inside add to the visual interest of the paint can. I wrapped some baker's twine around the can and decorated the top a little bit.
It's just a little something extra to let the teachers know they are appreciated!! My kids will make a card to go along with the tin. So if you are scrambling for something to make the teachers in your life, run to Michael's and get some of these paint cans to decorate!
Thanks for stopping by today!
