GORGEOUS Summer Decor DIYs... made using dollar store supplies and a FREE download

If you love SUMMER, FREE things, CHEAP decor, and craftting... this post is for you! Today, I'm sharing gorgeous summer decor DIYs that I made using dollar store supplies, and I am sharing a summer print that you can download for free.

First up... is this beautiful piece of porch decor I made using dollar store supplies.

I started with this galvanized planter that I found at my local Dollarama. 

I used my Cricut to add a decal to the front, but you could leave it plain, paint the front, or add stickers. It's totally up to you.

I finished by inserting floral foam into the bucket and inserting dollar store florals and greenery. Cute, right?!? For a closer look, you can check out the YouTube video here.

It looks great on my porch next to the dollar store bird house planter I made last year.

Next up... is this FREE summer downloadable print I designed for you. 

To get your copy: click on the photo below, right-click, and save it to your computer. Then, print it like a regular 8x10 photo.

You can display it on a dollar store clipboard embellished with ribbon and paper flowers.

Or, you can pop the picture is a dollar store frame (or a frame you already have). I have a frame in my house dedicated to seasonal and holiday prints, and I just switch out the photo periodically.

The last project I have to share today is a fun way to upgrade a wooden dollar store shelf. The dollar store has tons of these shelves with words on them. 

I painted mine with white chalk paint, added some wooden beads for feet, and secured a bit of ribbon around it with hot glue. I styled mine with dollar store greenery and lemons.

You can get a closer look at the "before" and "after" here.

Look how cute the tray looks with the free print. No one would guess that this summer decor came from the dollar store!

I also made a short little video showing how I made ALL these projects. Check it out below!

FREE Spring Watercolour Print

Seasonal decorating is a fantastic way to periodically refresh your home. And one of my favourite EASY things to do is to update the artwork on a clipboard frame I made using dollar store supplies. Today, I'm sharing a FREE print for Spring that you can download and use. You are going to love this idea!

Isn't this print simple and adorable for Spring? I printed it at my local copy store, and I absolutely love it!

To download your own copy: click on the photo below, right-click, save it to your computer, and print it like a normal 8x10 photo.

I put the print I designed on a dollar store clipboard that I dressed up with a bit of ribbon and some dollar store paper flowers. I love how easy it is to update this budget-friendly frame with new seasonal prints, don't you?

Alternatively, you could stick your free print in a frame. I love how it looks with some dollar store florals.

What do you think? Do you love the muted colours I used for this free Spring print?

Do you prefer the clip board frame? Or is the framed print more your style?
