~TeAchEr GiFt~

Seriously this is a super easy project to tackle, and the effects of letting our teachers know how much we LOVE and APPRECIATE them is even longer lasting.
I heard from a friend recently "I don't do teachers gifts because I can't afford it." 
GASP.....cough....Gasp again...
I am one of those peeps who believe in showing appreciation for our teachers and all of their hard work. 
It doesn't even have to cost money or you can spend hardly anything! 
It is the thought the matters, right?!

So here is a quick and simple gift idea.

First get out some frames. If you don't have any then hit the thrift stores or dollar store.
These are 5x7 frames that I already had on hand.

Next, pull out your tole paints, spray paints, whatever you want to bring your frames to life!
 I used a spray paint I already had on hand.

Then design, in your word perfect, word pad,  or photo editing program, a favorite quote.
And if you don't want to come up with one on your own...I did all the work for you.
I found this fun quote and designed it with a chevron background!
(Just right click, save in your files, and print. This is a 5x7 sz., but you could re-size it smaller too.)

After your frames are done drying, give them a light sanding.
Print out your quote or the one above and simply frame it!

All for the cost of $0.00


  1. Great idea! Thanks for sharing! And like always, it's the thought the counts..not the $$ spent! :)

  2. This is perfect! My son has attended a special education preschool for 2 years, I've been looking for something that expresses how much his sweet teachers mean to me. Thank you!

  3. definitely the thought that counts. Even if you didn't have a printer...your child could draw a picture or write a letter and you could frame it!

  4. Love it! Quick, Easy, and Cute!


  5. So cute I totally had to copy you! Thanks for sharing such a fun printable!
