Candy Cane Centerpiece (Teacher’s gift)

Here’s a fun, easy, and inexpensive gift idea I put together for my son’s Kindergarten teacher. A few other parents and I presented her a gift card and this cute centerpiece at the “Winter Party” last week.
I was inspired by this image off Pinterest via Ecopolitan Bride.

I started with a plain round glass container. This actually held a scented candle. It was close to being gone so I cleaned out the wax and made sure it was dry.

First I hot glued three packs of candy canes to the glass (found at Walmart for $1 each). Then I finished with some red ribbon. My local Fry’s grocery store had small poinsettias on sale for $3.99.

It turned out to be a super cute way to present an inexpensive flower!

Ms. D loved it… (see it on her desk?), and my son was also super proud to give her the stamped clay ornaments we made! 🙂

I just loved attending both my kids’ holiday parties. That’s one of the the most fun part of parenthood! Here are a few of my fav goodies they have made this year.

Thanks for stopping in and do have a fantastic day!
