super simple teacher gifts

succulent teacher gifts

even though i home school part time, my kids still go to school 2 days a week, so we have lots of teachers to be thankful for and show our appreciation to this christmas season!  they each have several teachers: core, art, science, music, latin, math etc… so i try to be creative with a gift that is either useful or beautiful, but also inexpensive.

i found these adorable glass tea light jars, made to look like gold and silver mercury glass, at target for $2.36 (next to the kitchen & dish section).  i added succulents from the home depot for less than $2.50.

some simple velvet and grosgrain ribbon, along with a tag from the target dollar spot, finished them off!

welcome to “what i wore” at the pleated poppy!  share with me your fashion posts and we can inspire each other!  i started this originally as motivation to get out of my daily uniform of jammies or sweats, but now i am encouraged and held accountable to put a few extra minutes aside for myself and try new things.  i’d love for you to join me!

I took very few pictures this last week because we travelled out of town for a family wedding – mostly cozy travel clothes!
