inexpensive teacher's gift idea

I made these little bouquets for Kira's teachers and speech path for Teacher Appreciation Week.

I think I'm going to do the same thing for Jackson's Zoo School teachers for the last day of school.

2 bouquets from Aldi's @ 3.99 ea - 7.98
3 coffee mugs from Salvation Army - 2.50 total (If I'd of been thinking ahead, I could of garage sale'd these for WAY less than that.)
1 large block of floral foam - $1.50 after 40% off coupon at Joann's

$11.98 for 3 gifts - not bad!


  1. those are great! and I love that the mugs are plain -- teachers get so much apple/"#1 teacher!" junk.

  2. Wendy, are those real flowers or silk?

  4. They're real. They are from two fresh(ish) bunches from Aldi. ;)

  5. Great idea! I'm crocheting washcloths to pair with some handmade soap I bought on etsy. Will have to bookmark this for next year.

  6. Great job! I really wanted to do something for the teachers, but they keep pushing the wrong buttons with me. Bad, huh?
