These are made out of a large glass bowl and terra cotta pots. I used an 8" pot for the bottom. The top was a 5" dish and for my bowls; I was able to put them inside. Some bowls you can put them inside or outside depending on your bowls. I bought these glass bowls at thrift stores. They run $6.99 or so at Michael's (craft store). I ended up getting them much cheaper at the thrift stores. The terra cotta pots I did buy at Michael's. I spray painted the pots. Then used E-6000 glue to glue the glass onto the pots. My daughter and I figured out the themes and sayings to match each teacher. Then I used my Cricut and cut out the sayings and their names in vinyl and proceeded to put everything on. The sky is the limit with your ideas. You can tailor this to any theme for any teacher. We are also filling the bowls with lots of great items for rewards for them to give out...non-candy related. Bookmarks, pens, pencils, erasers, little notebooks, balls, craft items we have made and much more. We will probably have so much that we'll end up with an extra box of goodies for them to fill them up with later on.
Back to instructions: For the top, I also used E-6000 to glue a knob on the top of dish. You can use wooden knobs, but because these are very special teachers we splurge on the the knobs to make them a little fancier.
We can't wait to give them to the teachers. They are Christmas gifts.
