Hand Painted Pencil Flower Pot

I always give a gift to teachers because I feel they are under-appreciated, and we need to show them how important they are to our kids.

Heck, I spoil my kid’s teachers throughout the school year because they deserve it. It doesn’t have to be much at all, so that is why this Hand-Painted Pencil Flower Pot is one of my favorite gifts to give to them.


Tips for Making This Easy Painted Flower Pot

What if I can’t find the exact brand or color of paint?

No problem and my suggestion is to bring a pencil with you to the craft store and try to match it the best you can. Sometimes brands are sold out or not at sale at certain stores, so don’t let that stop you. Remember, it doesn’t need to be perfect, just made with love!

What other items can I put in the Painted Flower Pot?

You can get creative on what to put in the pot- it doesn’t have to be pencils.

  • Sharpies
  • Writing pens
  • Flower/Plant
  • Candy- like suckers
  • Granola Bars
  • Rulers
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Anything I teacher might need or want

Another fun project you can make for your favorite teacher is the DIY Teacher Crayon Wreath.
