Show your appreciation to the teachers in your life with a do-it-yourself planter and some cheery pansies.
You’ll need 2 yardsticks, a 4” x 4” wooden planter box, a potted pansy and saucer that will fit inside the planter box. Gather your glue gun and glue sticks, sandpaper and a hobby knife to create your gift.
Cut the yardsticks into 4” lengths and sand the cut edges smooth. Glue the yardstick pieces vertically and next to each other, onto all four sides of the planter. Set the saucer in the bottom of the planter box and place the potted pansy on top of it.
Your project is complete and sure to make the teacher’s day while creating a fun memory with the youngsters in your life.
