I love creative teacher gifts and my daughter is just starting Kindergarten! So when I saw About a Mom create pencil flowers I knew what my daughter would be bringing to school for her new teachers. These pencil flowers are so easy to make you can do them in 30 minutes!

Now, I don’t own a flower punch and I couldn’t justify spending $24 on one for this single project. So instead I found the perfect solution. Precut paper flowers from Michael’s. The ones pictured are the Shabby Chic ones, I picked these because some of the flowers have book print on them. I also have an oversized hole punch that was the exact size of the eraser, making it easy to slip the flower on. You’ll also need wooden pencils, Elmer’s glue, and green ribbon.

Pencil Flowers Materials


I pulled out all of the flowers to pick which ones I wanted to place together. Pencil Flower Teacher Gifts

I used one big one and a smaller one on top. The pastel colors and book print just looked so cute together. Punch a hole in the center of the flower. If you have a regular sized hole punch you’ll need to punch two holes to make it wide enough. Pencil Flower Teacher Gifts

I then put glue all the way around the outside of the silver part so that the ribbon and the flower wouldn’t fall off. I wrapped the green ribbon around to hide the silver part and then simply glued the knot so that it wouldn’t come untied. Pencil Flower Teacher Gifts

Then place the flower onto the eraser. Set them in pencil holder to allow the glue to dry without squishing the flowers.

You could use silk flowers as well for this project and they may last longer. Make sure to check out  About a Mom tutorials if you have a flower punch and extra scrapbook paper! Protection Status

  1. I am a retired teacher and I like your teacher gift idea! It is a great gift that any teacher would enjoy! Keep up the great work. Hug-A-Bug hugs to you!

  3. This is great. I love how creative and actually really pretty they turned out. Would be great for a gift at Christmas time.

  4. This is simple, easy and very good activity for kids, specially if you want them to be crafty! Thank you so much for sharing, I am searching for anew activity that could help my kids be more creative this past few weeks ( I am trying to take them out of computer for the past week) and this blog gives me idea on our nice activity. Very creative and visually enchanting, the instruction is really simple so hopefully I could make my own version tomorrow.
