Yellow Roses - Teacher gift

Last week was beyond CRAZY!  We had the boys birthday/goodbye party on Saturday and I took on WAY too much in the preparations.  Will I ever learn?  (Not likely!)  I can't wait to share the party with you, but it will have to wait till next week.

This week is Teacher Appreciation.  Each day I will showcase what my son is taking to spoil his teacher. You can never spoil a teacher enough!  They do so much that goes unnoticed.  Take the time to give back and show some much needed appreciation!

I have lots of cute items to give Ryan's kindergarten teacher.  The room mother had a daily list of things to give the teacher.  I am trying to follow the list with some additional crafty gifts!

The first day was the teacher's favorite flower; a yellow rose.  Well, I knew she would probably get a few bouquets worth and that they would eventually die off.  I wanted to give her something that would last and that she could use as a decoration.



Here is my sweet Ryan, ready to surprise his teacher with a special gift!

I made three rosettes and and attached the stems to each one.  I wrapped them together and tied a yellow bow on them.
Here is a closeup of the roses.

If you are interested in making the roses, you can find the pattern here.  It is the same as the ones I made for my wreath.

To make the stems here is the pattern:

Worsted weight yarn
I hook

Chain 52.  Hdc in in the second stitch from the hook and in every stitch to the end.  Fasten off with a long strand of yarn.  Attach a sewing needle to your yarn.  Place two pipe cleaners on the yarn and sew the sides of the crocheted piece around the pipe cleaners.  I tried one pipe cleaner but it wasn't sturdy enough.


I hope that Ryan's teacher enjoys her first day of Teacher Appreciation week!  If you would like to see past ideas for teacher appreciation, you can find them all here.
