Believe it or not, but this is my son's favorite day after his birthday :-) I don't blame him, he has the greatest teacher ever and I really do mean it!
She is smart, charismatic, strict but fair, overall the most amazing teacher we could have wished for! Not to brag or anything...but yes :-) we do brag! :-) And why shouldn't we?! She is incredible and we love her and we really wanted to do something nice for her for the first day of school.
I was thinking what to get her...flowers sounded pretty standard, so I came up with the idea to make her a bouquet of pencils :-)
I run to the store and bought everything I needed and voila!
It took me not more than 20-30 minutes to make it, but mostly because I was coming up with the design at the same time :-)
The scarecrow I bought from the store, but I thought it was nice finishing touch.
I've glued different kind of pencils to the bamboo vase and then used multi-color yarn as a finishing touch.
Some of the pencils are with "flower" heads, I made them from yarn and buttons:
This is the back of the vase-
Happy 1st day of school to everybody!!!
