This week, if you’re like the rest of the Partially Motivated world, is the week you are scrambling to come up with original, easy ideas to provide gifts for those who have helped you or your children grow either through Teacher Appreciation Week or Mother’s Day. So to save you some research time we have gathered some great do it yourself projects from the web that can work for both Teacher Appreciation Week and Mother’s Day and are super cost effective for those of us who might or might not have 11 teachers and 3 mothers to arrange for.
Who knew an old jelly jar could turn out so beautifully?
Pins like these are super trendy in my neck of the woods. I’m not a great seamstress, but I think I could handle these easy instructions.
I think this project could easily be changed for Teacher’s Appreciation Day. And who doesn’t like cake?
I think these are just super sweet, and it would be a great project for little hands to take part in.
Download the tags provided by Eighteen25 for both teacher’s and mother’s day gifts. So easy and so cute!
So simple, and I think with the bright green of some herbs that you can buy, this would be a great gift.
Because you already have the chalkboard paint from the above project, and the mustache glass made me laugh.
and finally one last one…
I’m a sucker for the Mod Podge done well, and these are perfect gifts for teachers or mom’s out there.
Well there you have it. These are all super great and easy right? We think so. Enjoy!
Have any other ideas for us to share? We’d love to hear and see them.
