Simple Mother's Day Gift

My students made these beautiful flower pens for their Mother's Day gifts.  To make, I cut the tip of each pen in order to hot glue the flower on top. (This was probably the most time consuming step. Prep this ahead of time.)  Then, each student wrapped floral tape around the pen.  The vases are jars which they painted the inside of.  I loved how they turned out and the kids were very proud to give these to their moms.

Happy Teaching and Learning!

  2. Great idea! Painting inside the jars means they won't chip. Thanks for sharing, Renee

  5. What a cute idea! I'd love one of these! I love the tip to paint the inside of the jars - I can imagine that made it less messy while they were drying as you didn't have to worry about the outside touching stuff!
