6 DIY Teacher Appreciation Gifts

6 DIY Teacher Appreciation Gifts LivingLocurto.com

It’s Living Creative Thursday where I feature YOUR creative ideas! School is almost out, and we all like to do a little something special for the teachers’ that spent the last nine months with out kids, but we don’t want to break the bank to do it. That’s why this week’s living creative features 6 DIY teacher gifts that are top class! Thanks so much to everyone who submitted their favorite parties to #livingcreative Thursday.

Teachers are always sending notes all around the school, to parents, home with kids, and pretty much anything else you can think of, so a notepad is always a big hit. Amy and Michaela from Making Life Whimsical made an adorable free printable for these teacher notes, and I love the little bow!
