Each year on the first day of school I love to have my boys greet their new teacher with a little gift to say hello and that we are glad to be in their class. I love how this Back to School Striped Mason Jars teacher gift turned out, it was a huge hit.
Not only is this set cute, it’s a functional gift for the teacher to help them stay organized with some of their favorite school supplies.
– mason jars
– DecoArt Americana home decor chalky finish paint (everlasting white, romance red, delicate yellow, legacy blue)
– DecoArt Americana créme wax
– clean soft white cloth
– foam brushes
– painters tape
– sandpaper (optional)
I am not showing a step by step tutorial today, but there is a full tutorial on how to make these super fun striped mason jars HERE with my Spring Inspired Striped Jars. Head over and see how easy they are to make.
You have a few choices. You can fill them with office supplies, individually wrapped candies for the teacher to snack on, or some $5 gift cards to places like Sonic – Starbucks – or Target.
Wrap each jar with a simple piece of jute twine or ribbon and add a tag and you are all set to greet the new teacher on the first day of school, these also make a great gift at any time during the school year.
