DIY: Hand-made Gift Ideas for Teacher’s Day

Teacher’s Day is celebrated worldwide every October 5th. I was browsing through Pinterest for gift ideas to give to my teacher friends and I thought I should share some here. 🙂

#1 Teacher Banner with Paper-cut Hands. How-to: Use colored paper to cut out triangles for the banner/bunting; to cut out letters and hands. Arrange everything on the banner (could be made of paper too) and glue them on. Write your (student) name on the hands. Hang this banner on your teacher’s office door or on your classroom door/wall.

Students’ Hand Prints. Using cardboard/paper/fabric, cut out a heart shape; decorate. Use watercolors to make the hand prints; decorate with your name. Add a “Happy Teachers’ Day” note and ribbons for hanging. Hang on your teacher’s door.
