DIY: Tile glass pendant

Enjoy!Chatting with a co-worker just now, I realized that the last day of school is right around the corner. Clearly, on one level, I was aware the end was near. But that was a level that I had shut down, stuffed deep into my psyche so I could deal with all the other tons of stuff that happen just before the year ends.

But what really stuck in my craw was when my co-worker mentioned having to get a gift for her elementary-aged kid’s teacher. The torrent of thoughts that followed:

- I should get my kid’s teacher something;
- This teacher is going to get a ton of gifts from kids;
- Most of these gifts are probably going to be that bulk-style, plasticky crap with lead paint,
which means…
- I have to do something different.

DAMN IT. Effort was going to be involved — likely mine.

Luckily for me, I know of a VERY easy DIY that is both inexpensive YET has classiness potential. It’s the kind of thing you (and your kid) can make, and the teacher won’t do the dead-eyed, tooth-gritting ehhhhhhhh smile.

It’s perfect for teacher’s gifts, graduation gifts and self-adoration gifts (the best kind, obviously): The glass-tile pendant.

As a teacher, I would really appreciate a gift card to ANY WHERE instead of a gift.

Angela says:

As a teacher, I loved everything that my students and families gave me. Hand crafts are the best, most thoughtful gifts any one could give to anyone! Excellent thought!

Thanks, both of you, for your thoughts. It’s always a toughie!
