Fall Teacher Thank You Gift

Yeah its Fall Y'all!!

I feel like I say this every year, but it truly is my favorite time of year in the South!  The trees are full of fall colors and we are blesses with beautiful weather.  The temps are cooler in the mornings and evenings with warm sunny afternoons.  Its hard not too feel excited with the beautiful weather and the holidays approaching.

I wanted to share with you these very simple and inexpensive Fall Teacher Gifts. We are so blessed to have my kids in a wonderful public school filled the most amazing staff.  I love doing things for my kids teachers because they give them so much in return.  This fall we are sending in the cute candy apothecary jars full for fall goodies.  A very expensive gift to let you teachers know how much your appreciate them.

I originally saw these jars on this Pinterest post about creating apothecary jars for only $2.  I knew this was a project I wanted to do with my kids.  They were super excited about it because they used their allowance money to purchase the supplies at the dollar tree and help make these cute teacher treats.

I thought it was a very cute and simple teacher gift to let them know how thankful you are for them.  You can fill the apothecary jars with any kind of goodies, from homemade to store bought. After they were filled we used some cute ribbon and thank you tags to personalize the gift.

  All you need is a candle stick, a jar with a lid and glue, I found out the hard way that you need to get a special glass glue. I would suggest using E-600 glass glue.
I created some thank you tags, that I printed on cardstock. I used my 2.5" circle punch to punch out the circles.  Then I used coordinating scrapbook paper and my 3" scallop  punch to create the layered looked. I glued the  two circles and used a hole punch to attach it with ribbon to the apothecary jars.
 You can also personalize it with your child's name.
