Quick Handmade Teacher Gifts

This weekend, like most of you, I was super busy trying to check items off my holiday to-do list.  One of the projects I worked on are these cute gifts for my daughter's wonderful preschool teachers!
Last week I scored fleece scarves from Old Navy for $4.00 a pop.   Then I made three felt flower pins to go with each scarf for that handmade touch.  To finish off the gift, I grabbed the candy cane striped buckets from the dollar spot to use as the festive container (no gift wrap needed!).  I love how the gifts look like little flower pots!
I made three different types of flower pins inspired by some awesome tutorials.  You can find the tutorial for the grey pin here, the pink pin here and the turquoise pin here.  I think the turquoise one is my favorite.  It's just so ruffle-y and puffy!  These are totally addicting to make.  I made 6 more this weekend for family members.  Consider yourself warned!

Are you making any handmade gifts this year?

Thanks for visiting!
