Teacher Gifts are next up on my Christmas Gift making list. I thought that this Pencil Mason Jar Cozy would look so cute on a desk filled with pencils, don’t you? Although I’m pretty sure I will fill mine with fancy chocolates before giving it to my son’s teacher. After making the Buffalo Plaid 3 Wick Candle Cozy I couldn’t help but also make one with a pencil theme as well. Because what Teacher doesn’t deserve a little scented relaxation at the end of the day, am I right? Ooooo! Maybe I will fill the Mason Jar with homemade bath salts!! The possibilities really are endless. Just make sure to add a note reminding people to not use the cozy while burning a candle, they are for decoration only.
