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
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.
