Owl Teacher Gift

Super Cute and Inexpensive Owl Teacher Gift - a magnet and chalkboard sign! { lilluna.com } All you need is a few supplies - silhouette chalkboard, magnets, ribbon, buttons, and chalk.

I know not everyone believes in Back to School Teacher Gifts, but I think it’s a great way to start off the year to show your child’s teacher that they really are excited to be there and that they are anxious to learn! Are they necessary – no! They’re just fun – it’s as simple as that. They don’t have to cost a ton or don’t have to take hours and hours to make, and this next project is one of those. I decided to make an Owl Teacher Gift that was a magnet and chalkboard too. It cost under $12 to make and about 20 minutes to put together.

Easy, right?

If you’d like to make on for your child’s teacher this is what they’ll need to make it…

1.Begin by writing your phrase on your board so you know how much room you have.

NOTE: This is chalk so the phrase isn’t permanent! I decided to say, “Whooo’s Having Fun in Class?”

 2. Hot glue magnets on your board since it isn’t magnetic. Then you will glue a magnet (make sure you use the opposite end of the magnet as the one on the board so they stick together) onto a button or embellishment (I found mine in the scrapbook section).

I ended up adding 6 to my board.

3. Place pictures on your board using your magnets to hold them in place.

4. To add extra embellishment I made a bow out of ribbon and also hot glued that to a magnet and put a magnet on the board too to make it even more cute.

I also replaced the string at top with some jute to have it match my bow. 😉

Just wondering when you made this? I went to my local Michael’s store and they said this (the Chalkboard Silhouettes) was carried last Spring. Perhaps different stores have the items at different times. Either way it is an ADORABLE craft!

    I bought this about 1.5 weeks ago and it was the first time I had seen them (I go pretty often). They had other shapes too. 🙁

Hello! I happened to stumble upon your blog because I was trying to find a website with these owl boards. I actually made a similar gift for my kids’ teachers for Christmas. (However, I bought mine at a local toy store for $19.99! WOWZERS!! That’s HUGE difference. I’m all about shopping local, but wow . . . ). Anyway, I also used a chalk marker, as suggested by the store employee. Actually, I used a Bistro chalk marker just like you have pictured here. I was so frustrated to find out that the chalk marker does NOT come off of this board once dried! My husband is one of my kids’ teachers, so he got a board from our daughter. I have tried everything to get this to come off. I was wondering if you had the same issue? Very curious! Thank you! Your gift is absolutely adorable!!!!
