Hey everyone! I just thought I would share a super quick Teacher Thank You Gift that I made for my kids teachers.

2x4 wood cut into 2: 3.5 and 1: 4.5
sand paper
sponge brush
black craft paint
abc block fronts (mine were created using gg digitals-School Days Kit)
modge podge

Sand the rough edges of your blocks.
paint them black and let dry

Using modge podge adhere your abc fronts to the blocks using a first coat to stick them on and then a 2nd coat going over the fronts. (My fronts were created digitally in Photoshop using the kit mentioned in the supplies, but get creative...your fronts could be made a ton of ways!)

Here is the finished product! I made 4 sets and each set probably cost $.50! Can't beat that price. Throw in some apple scented hand soap and they are ready to head out the door to the fabulous teachers who have inspired my kids all year!

  1. Those are so cute! And you don't just have to use them for teacher gifts, you could make them with a variety of letters, spell things out, etc... Love this.

  2. Those are adorable! What a great, inexpensive idea.

  3. Those are very adorable! Nice gift for a loving teacher!

  4. I was going to make a stitch but those are SO much faster! I think I am going to make those for Jesse's teacher and one for my "September" shelf as well! :) I even have leftover blocks already cut out from an earlier project! Thanks for the idea!

  5. favorite teacher gift I have seen this year!!! Love it!

  6. Those are too cute! Too bad I don't have little ones with teachers to make gifts for anymore!
