Teachers’ gifts are so much fun. For me, they are a great way to say ‘thank you’ and ‘I appreciate you’. This Unicorn Gift Basket is a great idea that makes the ideal teacher gift! Teachers don’t get enough of these things these days. Yes, we have special days for it or general holidays but, it doesn’t have to be one of those special days for you to do something nice for your child’s teacher.
Unicorn Gift Basket for a Teacher from Dollar Store
We love shopping at the Dollar Tree or any general dollar store for crafting supplies. It makes it so much more affordable and is tons of fun to stock up on fun things. Not only can you pick up fun craft supplies, but you can add simple gifts to the basket by picking up motivational books, hand lotions, candies, and other little items that will come in handy for a teacher year round.
Supplies for Unicorn Gift Basket Teacher Gift
- White Basket
- Black Sharpie
- Fake Flowers
- Pink Foam Paper
- White Foam Paper
- Gold Sparkle Foam Paper
- Super Glue
- Grass & Goodies!!!
- Take your gold sparkle foam paper and cut out a unicorn horn. I suggest cutting the horn on the larger side. That way if you do need to resize, all you need to do is trim rather than cut a brand new horn.
- Time for those ears. Grab your white foam paper and cut two ears.
- Then take your pink foam paper and cut the middle section of the ears.
- Once you have white and pink ear sections, glue them together to make the perfect unicorn ear!
- Grab your super glue and flowers. Glue the flowers on the rim of the basket.
- Next, glue your horn onto the basket followed by the ears.
- It’s time to draw on those eyes! Take your sharpie and first practice on a blank piece of paper to perfect your technique. Once you have your technique mastered, draw on those eyes and eyelashes. Sharpies are permanent so make sure you’re ready. You only get one shot!
- Now you are ready to fill your basket with the Easter grass and all those Easter goodies!!!
And it’s ready!
