Teacher Appreciation Week is this week in our schools and this past weekend my Niece and I made these cute, quick and easy Apple Pots for her teachers.

  • Paint a terra cotta pot and saucer with Country Red Americana Paint from DecoArt and let dry. 
  • Paint a wooden spool with Chocolate Brown, let dry. 
  • Paint a large "squiggle" in Pistachio Mint, let dry - then paint stripes in Victorian Blue to create your "Worm". 
  • Outline your Worm and draw in his/her face with a Black Sharpie Marker.
  • Lightly letter your saying - Grade A Teacher - in pencil then fill in with the Black Sharpie Marker.
  • Spray entire "Apple" - inside and out with Matte Spray Sealer from DecoArt, let dry.
  • Glue a silk leaf and the painted spool to the top of your terra cotta saucer "lid" with Aleene's Original Tacky Glue from I Love To Create, let dry.
Fill with a sweet snack or maybe a gift card and say THANK YOU to your favorite Teacher this week!

Thanks for stopping by! - Beth
