Teacher Crayon Jar DIY Holiday Gift #teachmetuesday

Connection (1)

Even though we Homeschool Danyella, I have many teacher friends who love Holiday gifts. So today we are featuring a DIY mason jar decorated with crayons that is so easy the kids can do it themselves (with some help/guidance of course). Once the jar is decorated, you can fill it with their favorite candy, snack or flowers!



1 Jar (mason seemed to work best for us)

Double sided tape

48 or 64 count crayon pack (depending on how big your jar is)


Jar filler

  1. wrap 1 or more rows of the double-sided tape around the jar. I did 2 rows of the tape but 3 would have made it more secure.Photo Nov 14, 2 26 03 PM
  2. Let the kids decorate the jar with the crayons. Just be sure to press the crayons against the tape to keep them secure.Photo Nov 14, 2 33 04 PM
  3. Cut a large piece of ribbon to wrap around the crayons and tie a bow. We learned it was easier for me to do this part because Danyella was getting frustrated with trying to hold the ribbon in place and tie the bow.Photo Nov 14, 3 08 57 PM
  4. Fill your jar with the teacher’s favorite items and you are ready to place the gift in a box or gift bag and give to your teacher!
