This week is back-to-school time at our house, so I thought I'd share this project from several years ago. I still love this idea!
DIY Vase for a teacher's desk
Supplies: inexpensive vase with straight sides, pencils
Tools: glue gun
(Note: I bought a vase for $1 at Wal-Mart as well as some cheap pencils. You can use very cheap pencils because they don't have to write well--they're just for looks. My vase required 22 pencils to cover the entire outside.)
Simply apply hot glue to sides of vase and glue pencils all the way around the vase. That's it!
You've got a perfect vase for a teacher's desk.
And look how cute it looks with some grocery store flowers and a bit of ribbon.
Easy as pie, quick to put together, inexpensive. But much appreciated by a hard-working teacher.
