My baby girl graduates from her first year of preschool this Thursday. Where in the world have the last 4 years gone?
Anyways, I knew I wanted to give her teachers a year end gift, but because there are 5 of them I always struggle figuring out what to give them. I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, but I don’t want to give them something useless either. Then, I looked at the dozens of propagated succulents that I had lying around and instantly knew what I would do. Here’s what I did and how you can make your own…
Easy End of Year Succulent Teacher Gift
- Jars/cups/containers of any kind
- Decorative rocks
- Potting soil
- White cardstock
- Free printable “Thank you for helping me grow”
- Spray paint (if you don’t like the color of your containers already)
If you want your containers to be a different color than they already are (which I did), give them a few coats of spray paint and let them dry well. I used punch goblets I found at a thrift store for $1.99.
Fill the containers very full with potting soil.
Lay the decorative rocks around the edge leaving a circle in the middle for the succulent.
Place your succulent in the center making sure the stem goes down into the soil. Give the succulent a little spritz of water to help it settle into the new container.
Print out these free labels to attach to your gifts, cut them out, and then attach with string. I used baker’s twine.
These were the easiest gifts to make! And the best part, for 5 gifts I spent a grand total of $3.98 which means each gift cost just $0.79! I can’t wait to have Bean give them to her teachers this week. Succulents are the gift that keeps on giving 🙂
Are you as in love with succulents as I am? Did you know that each leaf can potentially grow another plant? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
