May is such a busy month, with school winding down. I had to get going on my teacher gifts early this year, since we kind of have a lot going on at the end of the month. I saw this adorable idea last year with the crayons, and I knew I wanted to do something similar.
I think personalized gifts are wonderful to receive, so I like to make them as often as I can.
Canvas (I used 12x12)
Paint & brush
One trick I learned with stripes, is to use the same width of tape as you guide in between stripes. Make sure to continue the tape on the sides of the canvas as well.
I cut out the letter that I wanted, so I could use it as my guide.
It helped a lot to have an idea of where to place the crayons.
Then I added some vinyl to it--you could stencil the words on if you don't have a cutting machine.
And if I am being honest, the pinwheel was an after though. I accidentally forgot to center my letter, so it looked off. I added the pinwheel to make it look better--and I actually really like how it looks with it. :)
I am very excited to have my daughter pass these out to her teachers. They have done so much for her this year, that this is the least that I could do for them!
Yay for wonderful teachers!
