My son is counting down the days till school starts! He is so excited to start Kindergarten.
We thought it would be a great idea to make a pencil holder for school; however, I don’t think they are allowed one at their table. So we decided to make one for his teacher.
A great thing about this pencil holder, it holds extra pencils for when a kids need them and it has special flags so the kids can return them to the teacher.
When looking for the perfect Duck Tape to use for this project, my eyes laid upon the Chalkboard tape. I HAD to use this tape. Nothing says teacher like chalkboard!
Back To School Teacher Gift
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Duck Brand Chalkboard Tape
- Duck Brand Duck Washi Tape (your color choice)
- Terra Cotta Pot
- Decorative Pebbles
Step 1: Cut a section of the Chalkboard Tape. We cut ours to be about 3 inches long. Peel the backing off the tape and apply it to your terra cotta pot.
TIP: Don’t try and put it on straight. Since the pot is round, it just doesn’t look right. It is best to angle the tape.
Step 2: Using your chalk, write a cute little message on the chalkboard tape. It is best to do this before filling up the post.
Step 3: Fill your pot with the decorative pebbles.
Step 4: Take a pencil and lay it on the sticky side of the Duck Washi Tape.
Step 5: Fold the tape over on to itself and cut.
Step 6: Cut a triangle out of the flag.
Now all you have to do is to add the pencils to your terra cotta pot and you are done! I told you it was the simplest teacher gift to make.
