To show my boys' teachers how much I appreciate them, I put together a little happy for them.
A chalkboard flower pot with some SUPER cute paper flowers
supplies I started with a terra cotta pot, chalkboard paint, and contact paper.

Use hot glue or another kind of adhesive to get the paper to wrap around the pencils.cricutflowers Cut out some cute flowers {3 per pot} either with a Cricut or just using a pair of scissors.

It was SUPER easy to do!
I made this K for my car with outdoor vinyl.
