Spoiling the teachers who are with my girls for 7 hours a day, 5 days a week is something I enjoy doing each year! Each week we do a “Thoughtful Thursday” gift and we work hard to try to create creative thoughtful, practical gifts!

As we are moving into the Christmas season, I wanted to give Extra special gifts to show them just how awesome they are! Because I love giving practical gifts that are easy to make, I knew exactly what I wanted to make! I have made a “tea wreath” in past and it came out really well. I thought I would do a take off of that, but this time with Extra gum, as I could come up with a fun play on the word “Extra!” I came up with fun Extra Gum wreath idea and here is the quick and easy “how to!” tutorial on how to make your own. It took less then 10 minutes to make, and it was less then $15 to make three of them.


Step 1: Buy Extra gum, anywhere you want… it’s sold at a lot of places! There are tons of flavors. I chose 5 different flavors. I bought the cardboard circles at Hobby Lobby, a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, and Red Ribbon, as well. Trace the circle on the back of the paper. Then cut out the circle.

step 2

Step 2: Glue the paper to the cardboard cut out. (I used a glue stick!)

step 3

Step 3: Hot glue the packs of Extra gum to your wreath. You could also use glue dots, but the hot glue worked great.

step 4

Step 4: The last thing I did was add the red ribbon on the top! I tied a bow, then also ties a loop at the top so the Extra wreath could be hung if desired.


Last you will want to print this tag to hang off of the wreath! Your teacher is sure to love this Extra special gift! Don’t forget to write a note explaining what makes them so Extra special to you! To print, simply right click and save the photo to your computer, then print.
