Teacher Appreciation - Wire Frames

Well, the end of the school year is upon us. I know, a little early, right?

My preschooler just graduated.

Sniff.

I woke up in a panic the morning of because I had no gift for the teachers. How do I let these things slip my mind until, literally, the hour before??

I decided to make them some wire frames.

Luckily, I had all the supplies on hand to make these cute little frames.


I painted the frames a lovely sky blue (2 coats).


Then I used my 100 grit sandpaper to distress the corners and edges.

I took my silver floral wire and hot glued them to the back of the frame, zig-zagging across the front...

I had these cute mini-clothes pins and used them to hang our little cards on...

On the back, my daughter wrote, "thank you! Love, ____" (Hey, she's in preschool...that's like a milestone for us. :)

All in all, a pretty good last minute gift for my poor, poor memory! I hope the teachers like it! Thank you, teachers for putting up with my dear little girl all year long!
