Fun Teacher Gifts ~ Beach Towel + Mason Jar

We had a few gifts to give at the end of the school and Awana year. I was inspired by a post on Pinterest.

The gifts include a beach towel, mason jar drink cup and lemonade packets. Fill the mason jar with lemonade packages and then take tulle or twine and tie the towel around it. I then added a custom flag tag to the straw

God Bless America Patriotic Banner

We had a Memorial Day party at our house and I wanted to make a decorative banner for our mantle. It's not often I make something for our house

I decided to make a three tier banner ~ God Bless America is the focal point and I then added a star garland and panels of red, white and blue

It added just the patriotic touch I was looking for!

Memorial Day BBQ

Such a fun day for a Memorial Day picnic with our church family. Mike was up at 3am to put the meat in the smoker and decided to sleep outside in his hammock.
