Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!

Aloha and Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!

Today I gave my co-teachers personalized mason jar water cups and I'd love to show you how to make them, too! 

I started with 24 ounce, wide-mouth mason jars that I got from Walmart, Aladdin brand straws that I found at Target, and rubber grommets and I got in the hardware section at Lowe's.

My husband drilled holes in the top of the mason jar lids with his cordless drill and slipped the grommets in place.  I washed everything really well to make sure the metal shards were all out. 

I then used my Silhouette Portrait cutting machine to cut out apples and the teacher's names onto vinyl.  The apple clip art is from Creative Clips on TpT.  

Inside the glass jars, I put a 5 ml sample of my favorite essential oil to put in my daily water - Wild Orange! I wrapped it up in some tissue paper and tied with yarn - just using what's already in my classroom! I put the little package and a product info sheet folded up so they can read all about the benefits of the oil.    
If you are interested in checking out more oils, you can go to my website here.  I recently signed up as a rep for DoTerra!

I then used the same yarn that I wrapped around the tissue paper and wrapped it around the lids and attached a simple little card.   They came out so cute and my co-workers loved them!

You can grab a copy of the card from my Google Drive.  Just click the picture below.


Leave me a comment below if you end up using the card or making these glass water jars.  How else do you celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day?



  1. That is brilliant!!!! I wouldn't ever thought to drill holes like that!!!

  2. There are times when I find it difficult to make decisions, but still have to do. I know people always have emotions so that there is no justice. But I still hope.
