Oven Mitt DIY idea {Teacher Appreciation}

    Posted by  ·  April 30, 2012

    Teacher Appreciation Week is the first full week in May. Through all of April I am excited to share some amazing ideas from some of the most wonderful bloggers for my Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas series! It’s a great month! You will be totally prepared with ideas to thank your teachers!




    This idea for Teacher Appreciation could not be any easier to create!

    All you need is an oven mitt and some treats (candy, pencils, pens etc.), some ribbon and the free printable below.


    Fill your oven mitt with the treats, add a tag with some ribbon and that is it!


    If you’d like to use the same tag I used, click here to download it.

      As a teacher, very cute idea, but PLEASE NO more pads of paper, pencils, pens, ect. I handwritten note about your appreciation is the best, a good picture of your child, or gift cards.
      (or the supplies I ask for during the year)
