Sometimes you just have that special teacher in your child's life and she deserves an extra special gift. That's how this came about.
The pitcher is an old thrift store pitcher. I spray painted it and brought it back to life. Then I put green foam inside and started making the flowers for the bouquet. The pink, red and white flowers are made out of crepe paper and put on stems. The dark red rose bud in the center is made out of paper heart doily (curled). The #1 is red shiny vinyl on a plastic spoon.
The teacher loved it and felt very special. Sometimes you have to think outside of the box and recycled products are great items to do that.
