Teachers are such an important part of our children’s lives. I wanted to create a useful and thoughtful gift. I’ll show you how easy it is to do yourself with the American Home by Yankee Candle brand sold at Walmart. You can visit the Walmart Assortment page to see what they have so many sizes and fragrances to pick from! You won’t be able to decide! It’s so convenient to be able to pick them up at such a great price point.
I started with a cute bucket with handles. I love the idea of a storage bucket so it can be used for books or supplies. I filled the bottom with Christmas tissue paper then some cute red filler you can find at the craft store. I added two size candles, one called Sunny Sands and one called Warm & Happy Home and a jar of fragrance beads. I wanted to keep with Christmas type colors and neutrals so everything would look pretty together!
I added mittens with the technology friendly tips, a scarf I crocheted from one skein of yarn in about 30 minutes. I’ll show you in another post, SO easy! And a sweet set of handmade, reusable hand warmers made from a cute plaid fabric that is soft and cozy! You can read the post on how to make the hand warmers here. I added burlap ribbon and twine for that rustic touch. The finishing touch is a tiny chalkboard tag that says “for you”.
I’m sharing a video on Instagram on how I put together the gift! Stop by if you like! I found the candles in the front of the store near the home items. Sharing at Stone Gable
