Simple (budget-friendly) YELLOW Summer DIYs

The first step to creating inexpensive decor that looks high-end is to select a cohesive colour palette... and yellow is the perfect choice for summer. Today, I am sharing budget-friendly summer decor DIYs that are easy to make and look fantastic.

Free lemonade print - This lemonade print is super-cute and couldn't be easier to make. I spray painted a dollar store frame yellow, and then I designed a simple lemonade print to put inside. It's cheerful and fun... and you can download your own copy for free here.

Serve yourself lemonade tray - The perfect companion to the lemonade sign is this simple "serve yourself lemonade" tray. The tray is actually a dollar store picture frame with wooden balls glued to the bottom. Pretty clever, right? Find all the info you need to make your own here.

Tiered tray - Decorating a tiered tray for different seasons and occasions is easy and fun. I love how cheerful and bright my summer tiered tray turned out. The birdhouse on the top was a plain wooden house I found in the dollar store craft section. I painted it yellow, and added brown "wood grain" contact paper to the room. I also love my jar of yellow and white dollar store buttons, my dollar store greenery and yellow flowers, and the book stack I made from scraps of wood.

Flower arrangement - What is summer decor without flowers? I found this "flowers & garden" tin at the dollar store and knew it would make a lovely summer garden arrangement. I inserted a piece of floral foam, covered the foam with moss, and inserted dollar store flowers. I think it looks really high-end, and it only cost me a couple of dollars. What do you think?

And look how cute it looks when you display it all together.

This simple yellow wreath is fantastic too. Can you believe it was made with a dollar store pizza pan and a $3 placemat from Walmart?!?! You can find the full step by step instructions here.

I alsolutely love my NEW summer decor, and I can't believe it only cost me a few dollars. Which summer DIY is your favourite? I love the tiered tray, but my kids would definitely pick the lemonade tray. 😄
