Back in my school days, teachers’ gifts consisted of an apple or a simple homemade thank you card. But these days, kids have gotten more creative. I ran across this adorable chalkboard potted plant by blogger Mariah that reminded me of our easy-to-make spring chalkboard pots. It’s just as simple to make, but really shows your kid’s teacher how much you appreciate them.

 DIY Teacher's Gift

 All you need to do is paint a pot with black chalkboard paint and yellow paint; add some ruler markings; and write a sweet message using chalk. Fill the pot with flowers from the grocery store, and voila! Can you say teacher’s pet?

    This is so adorable! I think I might make some for my daughter's daycare teachers, they have been so great :)

    I made these several years ago for my children's teachers and the loved them. I also made one for myself
    (I was a teacher at the time) and used it as a pencil holder.
