Pencil Mason Jar Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Such a cute teacher appreciation gift! A "pencil" mason jar!

Hi friends! I am so excited to share this cute little project with you today! If your kids are in school, you know just how much time and effort goes into teacher appreciation gifts! While our appreciation extends throughout the year, it’s nice to set aside specific moments where we can truly tell our teachers how much we care about their work and what they do for our children. This week, I’m teaming up with the gals of Craft Lightning to bring you a bunch of fun ideas for Teacher Appreciation Gifts! How does that sound? Tons of great inspiration – and here is my contribution: a Pencil Mason Jar!

What you’ll need:

  • Mason jar
  • Black paint
  • Pink fabric
  • Felt
  • Polyfill
  • Glue gun/glue
  • Yellow candy
  • Label/washi

And the steps:

  1. First I masked off the bottom of the mason jar for the pencil “tip” and painted it black.
  2. While that was drying, I cut a circle of pink fabric (larger than the mason jar lid) for the “eraser” top!
  3. Simply place the pink fabric right side down, add some polyfill and glue the fabric down to the inside of the mason jar lid, all the way around.
  4. I then glued a circle of felt down inside, to tack down all the fabric ends and give it a cleaner look.
  5. Then simply fill your mason jar full of yellow candy and you’re done!

How cute is that? Do you see it? It’s a pencil! Pink eraser top (which can also be used as a pin cushion), pencil lead bottom and full of yummy lemon drop candies! These alone would make cute teacher appreciation gifts, don’t you think?

But we went one step further and made a cute little label to go with. Simply print out the label and attach it to your jar with washi tape (my fave)!

And the end result is one adorable Pencil Mason Jar!
