Succulent Pens Teacher Appreciation Gift
Here’s what you need to make this Succulent Pens Teacher Appreciation Gift:
- Faux succulent stems
- Ballpoint pens
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Tacky glue
- Floral ribbon/wrap
- Plastic mason jar
- Paint (optional)
- Painter’s Tape (optional)
- River pebbles
- Printable Teacher Appreciation Cards print here: Helping Me Grow Cards
Start by wrapping a line of painter’s tape around your mason jar about 1/3 of the way down. Paint the bottom of the jar with the desired color to give it a color block look.
To make the succulent pens, hot glue the succulent pick along the side of a ballpoint pen. Use the hot glue to hold the floral wrap in place at the top and wrap it around the body of your pen, concealing the succulent pick.
Place a dot of tacky glue on the end of the floral wrap and press into place. Allow to dry completely.
Pour the river pebbles into your mason jar once the paint has dried. Stick the succulent pens down inside the rocks so they are sticking out of the top of the jar.
Wrap the top of the jar in twine and attach the printable teacher appreciation cards: Helping Me Grow Cards
Now you’re ready to give your teacher a one-of-a-kind gift!
This would also be fun to attach a printable teacher gift card holder to.
