DIY Graduation Gift: College Hashtag Tote Bag

Where did May go??! The last few weeks of school have flown by. So many fun projects-- I got to help host a "Glow Dance Party" for our entire school, chaperoned a class over-night trip (which included some fun campy crafts!), watched my little perform in her ballet recital, and celebrated my birthday. Phew! I hope to get some of those fun projects over here on the blog soon. Today I am sharing a fun idea that can be used as DIY Graduation Gift or an end of year gift for your favorite teacher. It's pretty much my favorite "DIY Gift" because it is so easy to make!

The College Hashtag bag is a fun twist on a project I have shared here. All you need to make your hashtag bag is a canvas tote bag, craft paint, and iron-on letters.

To start, use painter's tape to create a line. I like to place it near the lower third of the bag. Then use a foam brush to apply the paint. Lighter colors only need one coat. But I like to do two coats for the darker colors. Let the paint dry completely before removing the tape.

Use iron-on letters to add your 'hashtag'. (My set of iron-on letters did not contain a hashtag, so I made one myself by cutting up a H and an I.)

There are so many possibilities for this bag. I created "College" themed ones for my girls' school teachers. But while I was making them- I kept thinking... these would make awesome graduation gifts! And I also made a "ballet" one for Maisy to give to her dance teacher. And wouldn't this be a cute gift for a bride-to-be or a newly married couple?!

Below I sourced the supplies. If you make a Hashtag Bag-- send me a pic or tag me on social media! You can't go wrong with a hashtag :) :)
