FREE Graduation "Hashtag" Sign

If you want an easy way to capture graduation memories, make sure everyone shares their photos with the same hashtag. I love the idea of setting out a sign as a remember, and I'm sharing the one I designed for free.

To download the sign I designed: click on the picture (above), right-click, save it to your computer and print it like a regular 8x10 photo.

Then, add your hashtag and pop it in a frame. Here's what mine looks like in a dollar store frame. Cute, right?

I'm currently planning my oldest son's graduation, so I'll have more fun ideas and downloads soon. Make sure you follow me on all my social media channels so you don't miss anything!

Simple SPRING DIYs made using dollar store supplies / High-end Spring decor on a budget

Aren't simple ideas the best ones? Today, I'm sharing fantastic dollar store DIYs for Spring -- they are easy, inexpensive, and super-cute! (And there is a short step-by-step video at the end of this post, so make sure to check it out. 🙂)

How adorable is this rustic Spring wreath? It looks high end, the materials are super-cheap, and it's soooo easy to make. Wrap a wreath form in twine, wrap more twine around the middle, and insert dollar store florals. Easy peasy!

This umbrella wreath is another great DIY for Spring. Simple take a dollar store children's umbrella, pop in some dollar store flowers, and tie with a ribbon. That's it!

This porch hanger is cute too. The tin bucket came from the dollar store, and I added words with my Cricut. Then, I popped in some floral foam and inserted fake flowers. It was simple to make, and it would be a cheerful addition to any porch.

This riser looks high-end, but it only cost a couple of dollars to make. It's just a dollar store plastic bowl glued to a dollar store plastic plate. I love a 30 second DIY that looks like it came from a high-end store!

Alternatively, you can use the same technique to DIY a tiered tray for Spring. Glue a large plate, a candle stick holder, and a small plate together. I got all the supplies for this one at Dollarama.

For a closer look at these DIYs, check out the video I made (below).

Pro tip: I print mine at my local copy store (on cardstock) for less than $2 each.

You can just print one, or you can print a group like I did. Can you believe I got these frames on my local dollar store? I love to switch out the pictures for different holidays and seasons.

I hope you like these free summer prints. I have more summer content coming soon, so stay tuned!
