Home: Back-to-school floral arrangement with pencils

Throughout my high-school years, I was a straight-A student. My only B was in driver’s ed (and that was a miracle, given my car accident the first day of driver’s training). Letting your teachers know you appreciate them can help your standing, too, and starting the year off with a gift on the first day of school never hurts. 

Here’s an idea that could get you an A+ for creativity. It’s a vase made of pencils covering a cylindrical container, with a tape measure as a ribbon. You can fill it with any flowers you’d like. It’s sure to cheer up any classroom. 

What you’ll need:

  • No. 2 pencils
  • Small glass/vase/can
  • Double-sided tape
  • Rubber band
  • Colored plastic tape measure
  • Fresh or artificial flowers
