DIY Teacher Gift - Spin Art Stationary

Want a thoughtful DIY teacher gift your kids will be proud to give? Ta-Da!

My daughter's participation in gift giving is super important to us. It is just one way that we hope to help her believe that her gifts and talents are worth giving and worth receiving. At this point, she could rub brown marker on brown paper and everyone would be perfectly proud (thank God), but when she has something totally beautiful to give, BONUS!!


So go ahead, buy some basic kraft paper stationary ($4.99 at our local hobby store), a little tempura paint, and put that salad spinner to good use! Maaaaaybe a $8 total gift (which gets cheaper the more you make.)

The Goods:

The Process:

It is easy enough...

Use a little tacky putty to put your card on the bottom of the spinner. Let your kids drip, splatter, or make shapes with the paint, put the lid on, and spin until everyone feels satisfied.

Experiment! There isn’t a wrong way!

Look at that precious face of surprise! Every.single.time we opened the lid, he did this. His awe never waned.

Oh! these are the perfect companion craft too...

We love The Not Very Merry Pout-Pout Fish. It is a precious, easy to read, fun rhyming book about a fish that soon realizes that, “Hey! Homemade gifts are the best gifts.” Awesome addition to any home library or classroom!


Now, create a way! This DIY kids craft inspires creativity and exemplifies the power of giving and receiving handmade, love filled gifts. These Christmas Holiday Spin Art Stationary makes the perfect handmade gift for teachers, family, and friends. Enjoy!
