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.
Thanks for stopping by today!
