Thought I'd share with you the gift card wreath that we make for the teachers at our school. It takes a little planning before hand, so it's probably too late for you to pull it off this year. Just put it on your to do list for next year!
We start by sending out a letter a few weeks before hand with a self addressed envelope attached. (CLICK HERE TO SEE LETTER.)
The parents are then asked to either send in a gift card, cash or check by a certain date...usually a week before the end of school. Once we have collected all of the cards and the money, the room moms purchase the gift cards, wreaths and ribbon.
The cards are simply tied to the wreath with ribbon and that's it! Of course you can add more embellishments but it looks great just as it is.
It's so easy and such a great gift for teachers!
I'm lucky enough to be the room mom to both of my boys' teachers so you get to sneak a peek at the two I created this year. (To see the tree I made last year, click here.)
The paper mache' letters were added to personalize the wreaths a little bit. Tied to the wreath with ribbon lets the teachers' use it for a Christmas decoration now and in the future.
