Teacher Appreciation Gifts ~ Chalkboard Candles

Even though we homeschool,
we attend a Homeschooling Co-op
and have teachers other than ourselves for some subjects.

These teachers volunteer their time to teach students a subject that they are passionate about.  They are special ladies who deserve special thank you gifts.

All teachers need appreciation at school year's end.
This year, I thought these chalkboard candles were just right
to express thanks to them.

These candles from Hobby Lobby were perfect for this project but you could use any candle and add a chalkboard label.  A homemade candle would be extra nice.

Add a bow and tie on a piece of chalk.

I added a little note card and a Bible verse about "being the light."

I hope our son's teachers like the chalkboard candles as much as I do!

You are the light of the world.
A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;
nor does anyone light a lamp and
put it under a basket,
but on the lampstand,
and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Matthew 5:14-15
