Apple Shadow Box

I’m the queen of procrastination right now; I’ll blame pregnancy hormones. I meant to start this project several weeks ago, but I was preoccupied with getting ready for a new baby. This Apple Shadow Box is super simple to make if you have all of the supplies, and it shouldn’t take long to put together. I think it makes a cute Teacher Appreciation Gift. I created the template in Cricut Design Space already. You will just need to gather the required supplies, fill in the teacher and student names in the template, and assemble the Apple Shadow Box.

Instead of getting an end-of-year gift for Gabe’s teacher, we generally make a craft type project during Teacher Appreciation Week. This year Teacher Appreciation Week coincided with our wedding week, and I couldn’t get around to it. Last year, I made Gabe’s preschool teacher a Monogrammed Wall Canvas. I had made several wood projects for my wedding, and that inspired me to try my hand at another wood project for Gabe’s kindergarten teacher. A friend of mine showed me some wall art from somewhere like Bumblejax.com, so I thought it might have been a good idea to give something like that a try. Jeremy had some sassafras planks laying around that had already been planed; I believe a tree fell on the farm, and he likes to salvage everything. I decided it would be fun to create a pencil shape, paint it, and add her name using permanent vinyl. I absolutely love how this Pencil Wall Art turned out, and I doubt this will be the last one that we make. If you don’t count drying time, this project took about 30 minutes of actual working time to complete and a few dollars in craft supplies.

Monogram Apple Canvas for Teacher Appreciation Week

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week if you didn’t realize. And I think this is the perfect time to truly show your teacher how much they mean to you. You can easily check out something like these gift ideas for college professors if you are planning on getting them something, or you could create something for them (obviously depending on what they would prefer).

I posted a photo to Instagram of a monogram apple canvas that Gabe and I made for Teacher Appreciation Week, and I received some messages and emails asking how I created it. I decided to make a quick tutorial for those of you that are interested in making one for a teacher, or maybe for your own classroom. I was very pleased with how it turned out, and Gabe’s teacher now has it hanging in her classroom. It was an inexpensive way to show our appreciation for her hard work wrangling preschoolers this year.
