Teacher Gift Idea DIY - twine wrapped vases

The second teacher appreciation gift we did this week is pretty simple. Again, I had everything on hand. But the outcome is cute and it's practical at the same time. I tend to steer clear of too personal or kitschy gifts for teachers. How many mugs can they really own? Or do they really want that painting from my kid? A handmade card to go along with a gift is plenty cute and personal from my kids if you ask me.

For this one you'll need: fresh flowers, a few different colors of twine, double sided stick tape, drink dispenser or vase

I bought a few of these drink dispersers from Ikea, but I've seen them lots of places, such as at The Container Store, Cost Plus, etc. 

I didn't photograph how I started to wrap the twine, but I took a small piece of double sided sticky tape for the beginning of the twine and just wrapped. When I switched colors, I tried to keep it in the same area as where I began the last color so that if you turn the bottle, everything looks pretty and you don't see the starts and stops of twine.
