Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Appreciation Day is next week for us. I am Hunter's room mom this year and so am in charge of decorating the class room door and coming up with a gift for his teacher. I finally decided how I want to decorate the class room door but can't do it until Friday after school and then my gift needs to be ready on Monday. Knowing this day was coming up I've been searching for some unique gift ideas. Being everything is coming out of my pocket book I needed to be careful too. Several weeks ago I stumbled upon this idea here and new that I'd have to copy it.

It was pretty easy and fit my pocket book.

I bought this clock for about $4 at Wal Mart.

I then gathered different "school" supplies I had lying around the house and in the junk drawer.

I put it all together and created this....
I love it!
I think they turned out great. I only had to do one but when Madelyn saw a picture of what I wanted to replicate she wanted one for her teacher too.
This project, making 2 clocks for two different teachers cost less than $10.
That's my kind of gift.

So cute! I love that it's something they can use. I always hate getting teachers gift that are a waste! Plus, I like how you proved you can get us something that we can use and doesn't make you go broke!
