I found these bags in the dollar section at Target a few months ago. I bought a few because I knew there was a project waiting to happen! I painted them and we added cookies and a note to his teacher. Super simple, but personal.
You will need: Paint, paint brush, burlap bags.
I decorated these free hand and I was all prepared to add pictures of how to paint them. But I lost them. And since I took all these photos with my new camera..they will have to do. ;)
Stripes and polka dots is what I went with. Pretty simple, I would just suggested putting a piece of paper or cardboard inside so the paint doesn't bleed through to the other side. Let dry and you have a cute gift bag!!
Some more ideas to fill your gift bag are gift cards, chocolate, or a small gift!
Something you could also do is get your kids involved and let them paint them! They will have a lot of fun making something for their teacher.
