Teacher Appreciation Week is here and I just made such a fun gift for my son’s teacher! We have been so lucky that he has had some amazing teachers and I loved being able to give her this gift. I’m the classroom parent for my son’s class so I emailed the class and asked if any of the parents wanted to donate a gift card to make a gift card bouquet for a teacher appreciation gift. Once I had the gift cards and supplies in hand, it was time to make this incredibly easy and cute teacher appreciation gift! This could be a great gift for not just a teacher but anyone special in your life. Add in some gemstones for mom and this could be a perfect Mother’s Day gift as well.
How to Make a Gift Card Bouquet
- Flower Pot
- Plant Stakes
- Foam Flower Shapes – or you could cut flower shapes out of patterned paper!
- Styrofoam Ball
- Glue Dots
- Fake Flowers
- Gift Cards!
Place the styrofoam ball into the flower pot. Part of me wanted to chalkboard paint or write on the flower pot but I decided to leave it as is and I’m glad I did.
Cover the styrofoam ball with the fake flowers. This is just to cover up the styrofoam and make it look a little prettier. You will probably have to cut the stems down in order for it to fit.
Place a plant stake into the styrofoam ball. Then, attach a foam flower on one side of the stake using glue dots.
Take a matching foam flower shape and press on the other side. The plant stake will be in between the two foam flowers thanks to the glue dots.
Put glue dots (I used 2) on the back of a gift card and then press firmly onto the foam flower.
Repeat the steps above according to the number of gift cards you have and then you’re done! Gift cards can be for amazon, a cosmetics store, a spa vacation, or even a Jeep rental. You can even laser engrave some kind words and quotes with a laser engraver or cutting machine in the card to make the card more personalized. The choice depends on you and the person you want to give a gift to. Give to someone awesome in your life!

This is a cute gift idea for the hard to buy for.

Cute idea but I don’t think I can afford that many gift cards. Maybe instead of a bonquet I’ll do a gift card corsage.

This is such a cute idea. Who wouldn’t love this!
This is the cutest thing! So much nicer than a gift card inside a card, it seems more like a present with a lot of thought behind it!
