Whether it’s Teacher Appreciation week or a birthday, this Flowerpot Apple if going to be the perfect gift!
This Flowerpot Teacher Apple craft is the perfect container to hold some sweets and a gift card. A handmade gift that you can make with your kiddos will hold a special place in your teacher’s heart for years to come.
To begin, remove labels from flowerpots and saucers. Base coat the flowerpots and saucers with red acrylic craft paint. Apply a second coat, if necessary, and then set aside to dry.
The paint will soak into the clay of the flowerpot, so you will need more paint than normal.
Cut leaf shapes from olive and dark green felt and then accent with a pattern in bright green acrylic craft paint. Polka dots and plaid are easy patterns to duplicate.
Dip a new pencil eraser in acrylic craft paint and dot onto the leaf. Use the edge of the paintbrush to create stripes and plaids.
Base coat the wooden finial and spool with dark brown acrylic craft paint. Apply a second coat, if necessary, and set aside to dry.
Apply a dot of glue from a glue gun to the base of each leaf and pinch to create dimension.
Attach the wooden stem to the top center of the flowerpot saucer with a glue gun and glue sticks. You can also use liquid craft glue, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Tie assorted green ribbons, trims, and baker’s twine to the stem. Trim any long ends with scissors.
Layer the olive green and dark green leaves together, and then attach to the base of the wooden stem using a glue gun and glue sticks.
Fill with tissue paper or paper shred, candy, and a gift card. Whatever your kiddo’s teachers love, the possibilities are endless!
A gift card to the grocery store or Amazon would be thoughtful and something they can really use.
