Back To School Series | DIY Sequin Planter

For the past five years, Joel has been a fourth grade teacher, among other things – like uber talented handy man at home! I know how hard he works to teach and nurture 30+ elementary students 5 days a week for 10 months of the year! It’s a lot of work and at times, very stressful. So to start the school year on the right foot, I’ve come up with a little DIY Sequin Planter to show your teachers just how much we appreciate what they do all year round!

Simply clean the surface of your planter and hot glue your sequins to the planter.

Wrap tightly around your planter. Secure the end with hot glue.

You may choose to add a fun little note! I made a little banner that reads “Happy First Day Of School” and secured it to a pencil simply using tape. I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love to see a little greenery on their desk everyday! Plus, wrapping it in a little bling never hurts. If your teacher happens to be male, no problem! Just wrap it in bacon…just kidding! You can choose a more masculine color of sequins to wrap it in or just some simple ribbon or twine will do.
