So every year my lovely wife makes gifts for the kids teachers. Like most people she loves Pinterest. This year our teacher gift was inspired from Pinterest Here .
Krissy went to the local dollar store and found these little glass mason jar mugs. They also had these self adhesive foam hearts. so we stuck the hearts to glass in the pattern that we desired.
After the heart adhesion process we took them into the basement to spray paint them. It was like 18 degrees outside. We laid them out upside down for the first few coats. I sprayed them three to four times waiting 10 min between coats to allow it to tack and not run. We let them set over night then turned them over and gave a few more coats so we could the areas that didn't get touched because of being upside down.
Here they are, all dry and painted. I must note we had the pink and white spray paint sitting around from other projects so those are the colors we chose to use.
Here we have removed the sticky foam heart stickers. to reveal clear glass to the inside of the jar, mug. The foam stickers did not give the cleanest lines for the paint but it still is pretty cute.
Here they are all done. Krissy filled them with candy and tissue paper, tied a ribbon around the neck. They turned out mighty pretty if I don't say so myself.
We appreciate those who teach our little ones. We appreciate the unconditional love that they show for children. I know its not a lot but I hope that the time that we put into these will express our gratitude for them.
