Framed Teacher Gift

Hi WRMK fans!  Amanda here today.  Teacher appreciation week is fast approaching but it’s not too late to put together a thoughtful, handmade gift for the guardian angel that teaches/puts up with your kid everyday.  Even kids can get involved in this fun project.

Perhaps I should have asked some teachers for their thoughts, but I think there is nothing more lovely and sweet than the iconic bright red teacher apple.  A thoughtful piece of framed art doesn’t have to be complicated.  A simple apple made out of DIY Honeycomb paper in an 8”x10” frame is just enough to make a teacher feel special and loved.

This bright red honeycomb apple looks almost good enough to eat.  The dimension added by the honeycomb will definitely make this gift stand out on a table or wall.

Adding a stem and leaf to your honeycomb apple is super easy.  Simply roll a piece of brown cardstock into a tube and adhere on top of the apple.  Free-hand cut a leaf from scrap cardstock, add a crease down the middle and adhere to the cardstock.  Super easy, even for the kiddos.

Make your gift extra special by having your child write a sentiment or phrase with chalk.

The DIY Party Honeycomb stencil kit comes with all kinds of fun shapes, including an apple.  For an 8”x10” frame, trace the 4” apple onto a DIY Party Honeycomb pad.  Since we only need half of an apple, you only need to trace one.

There’s no need to get specialty chalkboard paper.  Distress a piece of black cardstock with some chalk to add some detail.

And just for fun, make some smaller apples by tracing the 2” apple stencil.  Heck, make a bunch of small apples for the cutest teacher appreciation garland ever.
