{DIY} Teacher Appreciation Candles

"A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others."  Unknown


The last few weeks have felt as busy as the November/December holiday season around here, but included in the fun has been this year's Teacher Appreciation Week planning, in which we celebrate the entire school staff that invest in our children's lives.

My co-chair (Shout out to Karen, you rock!) and I really have the best gig.  I mean, can we possibly over-thank the people that make us feel secure while our children are away and help cheerlead them on to new goals? I think not.  And the parents of ours school rally around that, giving generously to decorate the staff lounge, gift food every day this week, write thank you notes for us to string across the lounge cupboards, and...donate candles for us to make these gorgeous gifts.

We saw the quote on Pinterest.  My co-chair thought of attaching it to the candle.  And, I got to work on making the quote a wallet sized photo to attach with a simple, elegant ribbon.

Didn't they turn out cool?

Our hope is that when they open their mailboxes and see this plus their "Thank you 'FROYO' hard work" frozen yogurt gift cards they sense our gratitude for the priceless work they do. 

Teachers and school staff everywhere-
 sit back, relax, light a candle,
and know that you are a flame burning bright in the heart of a child.
