It’s back to school time, and this year is so different for us. It’s the first year since I’ve known Pete that he isn’t working at a school. So no back to school for us here. But we still have friends with kids going back, and we know teachers going back, so we’re sending a few of them these DIY Pasta Sauce Apple teacher appreciation gifts.
A traditional back-to-school gift idea is to give a teacher an apple. But apples, everyone can give those. How about a DIY pasta sauce apple? Now that’s something different.
I put a few together using an 8oz. jar of Rita’s Wooden Spoon. The sauce is the perfect size for this apple craft.
DIY Pasta Sauce Apple
What You’ll Need:
- 8oz. jar of Rita’s Wooden Spoon marinara sauce
- Bright green card stock
- Dark green card stock
- Black marker
- Paper trimmer
What You’ll Do:
Use the paper trimmer to cut 3/4-inch strips of the bright green card stock.
Put a dab of glue on the end of strip and wrap it around the rim of the mason jar. Let it dry completely, then put it on the mason jar.
Cut out a leaf shape with a long stem from the dark green card stock. Use the black marker to draw a leaf on the cut out.
Fold the stem down and tape the leaf to the top of the mason jar.
This is so cute for back to school. Would you make this DIY pasta sauce apple for your kid’s teacher?
