Well, once I got the mason jars dyed how I wanted them, the rest of the project was pretty easy! Using each teacher's favorite color, I hot glued some fabric to the lids and used freezer paper to stencil the teacher's initial on the top.
A few pretty ribbons on the side...
I got the idea for the appreciation jars here. I gave each parent in my son's class some strips of paper. All the kids sent back a note for each teacher, we stuffed the jars with the notes, and the teachers LOVED them.
And what's teacher appreciation day without a few flowers??
