For Hadar

While in a craft store today I asked my BFF Hadar, a kindergarten teacher, what she uses to hold her student sticks... she laughed as she shared with me the ugly truth... plastic science vials! I could not believe my ears. (Yes, I am a science teacher, but I'll take cute over science any day of the week!) We then headed for the ribbon isle where she picked out a pretty seafoam green ribbon with white polka dots. When I got home, I got to work...

Now Hadar has cute cans to hold her student sticks! I actually made two cans considering Hadar teaches kingergarten and therefore has two separate groups of kids, Early Birds and Later Gators. I kind of wish I had a before and after picture. Happy crafting!



  1. It's darling! Hadar deserves it, and you are a great friend. :)

  2. I LOVE IT!!!!! thanks Ashley :)

  3. I love this!! Too cute! :)

  4. Oh I love this! I just have a plain old plastic container to hold my student's sticks.

    Did you use a glue gun to get it to hold onto the jar? Maybe I should use a glass jar for this? What do you think?

  5. These are so cute!! I am going to have to decorate my stick cans now too!!


    What happens in kindergarten... lasts a lifetime

  6. Love it!!! I will decorating my can for the new school year.

  7. Kelly B,
    I did use a hot glue gun to hold the ribbon. And I used an aluminum can, but really, any cylinder will do. Glad you all like it!

  8. This is super cute! And it seems totally doable! Thanks for the idea. :)

    Magnificent Multiagers!
