Even though my oldest child is only a preschooler, I LOVE the back-to-school season! Before he was born I was a teacher, so the thought of fresh supplies–sharp pencils, notebooks, a box of crayons–gets me kind of giddy. I came up with this little craft that I think is perfect to use as a teacher gift. Fill one with candy and attach a cute tag, or use it to store some of those beloved supplies! Read on for the easy tutorial.
To make these apple jars you will need a jar with a lid. I like to just recycle old food jars. You’ll also need an apple–I used those decorative filler apples you can find at craft stores. Finally, you’ll need a strong adhesive like Liquid Nails, and some red spray paint.
Aimee has two energetic little boys, and a husband in dental school. When she’s not making PB&Js or washing scrubs, she loves to throw a pretty party, create things for her kids, and make over spaces in her home (on a starving student budget!). Catch up with her on her blog The Elephant of Surprise.
