Our school is out for summer and while we missed sending gifts during Teacher Appreciation week earlier this month, we did manage to bring in a nice end of year teacher gift instead. Check out how easy it is to make a candy bouquet (gift card optional).
I am trying to simplify and declutter myself, so I can’t in good conscious buy another mug or apple themed knick knack for our teachers.
I think the best, simplest gift for a teacher is a gift card. We opted to make the gift a little more fun by adding some of their favorite candy as well. Check out this easy way to make a candy bouquet.
How to Make a Candy Bouquet
- flower pot
- floral styrofoam
- wooden skewers
- washi tape
- assorted candy bars
- tissue paper shreds
- gift card (optional)
I actually had some of the items on hand like nice flower pots, washi tape, tissue paper shreds, etc and was able to find the rest of the candy bouquet supplies at local discount stores. However, I did link to some similar materials on Amazon above for your convenience.
How to Make a Candy Bouquet with Tissue Paper Shreds
Start by adding the floral foam to the bottom of the flower pot. Then wrap each wooden skewer with decorative washi tape. This creates a prettier ‘floral stem’ for the bouquet.
Tape a candy bar to the top half of each skewer and stick the skewer into the foam. Varying height of each candy stem to mimic flowers in a pot.
Attach a fun note card to a skewer in the front. You can also attach a gift card if you have the budget for it. Hide the floral foam by adding tissue paper shreds to the flower pot.
A quick hand written note from you or your child is perfect or go ahead and print one of the ones I created.

End of Year Teacher Gift
I think gift cards are the best teacher gifts, followed by practical classroom items so that teachers don’t have to spend their own money on more supplies. If you’d rather buy some for their classroom, check out the cute stapler printable I made.
