My two little ones are finally back to Preschool! I’m so excited for them. They both love their Teacher so I thought it would be fun to have them bring her a first day of school bouquet.
I bought a bunch of number 2 pencils to decorate jars. I reused a Jam jar and bought another candy jar from the dollar store to use. Since both of these jars were shorter then the #2 pencils I had my husband saw them perfectly in half. This way I could cover the outer part of the jar all in pencils. If you could find a tall straight vase you could do the same with full pencils as well.
I used a large thick rubber band around the jar and then positioned the pencils underneath. Once I had all the pencils on I added ribbon for decoration and to add some security to the pencils. Then I added school supplies to the larger one and flowers to the smaller one.
Last I added a gift tag with the message, “Happy First Day of School.”
Hope everyone had a lovely summer!
