Teacher Appreciation Wreath


This year for Teacher Appreciation Week, I decided to create a flowering wreath for my son's teacher.
I thought this gift could be something she could either display in her classroom or at home.  



For a special touch, I attached  a removable tag  with a personalized message.

To create this wreath, I used the same techniques featured in my Spring Wreath Tutorial.

Thank you, Teachers for all that you do!
