I don’t make the kid’s teacher’s gifts every year, but when I do its usually ornaments. Something the kids can help with even if it is just picking out colors.
I bought the stuff to make them a while ago.
I made them today, even though I won’t have the kids give them to their teachers until a week or two before the holiday break.
I glued the beads on a skewer with a string I could glue under the cap. I put the mini bulb ornaments on wire.
