I made this for O to take to her teacher on her Meet & Greet night. I figured the first day of school would be crazy! I found this idea on Pinterest. You can find the tutorial here. It was super easy and fun! I already had a large pineapple can. I had to buy the cork. Used my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby. I used regular glue to put the cork on. Then I realized, I needed to buy another roll of cork. Went back the next day and used my 40% coupon again. You know, you can show them the coupon on your smartphone. No need to print coupons anymore. Anywhoo, as I opened the next package of cork, I realized it was self stick on the back. I was a little worried, but, it worked out wonderfully. And, I think both corks that I bought were different thickness. Of course, I didn't look.
The green tacks, paper clips and the pencils came from Target Dollar Spot. I bought the candy and the ruler at HL. The note cards were a FREE printable that I just printed and cut myself. (I don't have the link to this, so, if anyone knows, please let me know, so I can give credit. I still have the pdf file though.) The Kindergarten sign came from a piece of scrapbook paper that I had and I just cut that out. I made the apple from my Cricut and had O write her teachers name on it.
As I am looking at the apple, I realized that she wrote Mrs. and she is a Ms. Oopsie! Sorry Ms. Janke! :)
Decided to make these gumball necklaces. The inspiration came from here.
The other blogger said she used a metal skewer to make her holes. So, I'm thinking to myself, what can I use? Don't laugh, but, I used our metal, marshmallow stick to make the holes. Worked perfect! Then I used a large needle to thread the ribbon thru.
