All proceeds go towards my mission trip to Africa. While there we plan to visit an orphanage and schools throughout Uganda to donate supplies and hopefully build another class block made of bricks in replace of the mud and stick structures currently there :)

Please contact me before your order because this is a busy season for me. If for some reason I can not fill it, it will be refunded. If you are interested in anything regarding graduations (money leis or posters) the EARLIER you place an order the better so you can get your order in time for your grad. Expedited orders may be possible but it needs to be discussed beforehand. ***

NOTE: I ship my leis Priority mail, with insurance.


These custom leis are made to order. They are an original piece made by me that my aunt taught me and I started making these 3 years ago for friends and families graduations. You may have seen this classic design used before. These money leis are made out of REAL money. I like to use brand new dollars and 2 dollar bills for a nice crisp, clean effect.

There are basically 3 ways to order this item:

1. As a crown The crown above was made with $2 bills. Note that the design will vary, all depending on which type of bill I use.


2. As a longer piece with ALL dollar bills to go around the neck (these are most popular)

COST= ($50+AMOUNT OF REAL MONEY YOU WANT INCLUDED+shipping)<------ includes $100 of real money if $1 bills are used. If you want a different kind of bill such as a $2 bills the price will increase.

3. Another option is to mix the money with the school colors so it would cost less and still keep its length.

COST: ($50+AMOUNT OF REAL MONEY YOU WANT INCLUDED+shipping) generally the amount of money would be $50 worth if "ones" are used and the squares would alternate between color and money. This is pictured above in the picture of the grad and her friend

Personally the ones with only money look awesome and people usually choose to do $100 "ones" which is shown above in the picture of the grad with her parents. These are more expensive but the labor is the same cost, I do not make more off of it.

NOTE: the leis do not come with the tassels included (the mother found them at the dollar tree and attached them for an extra look) Each square represents one bill and the graduate may take it apart and reuse the bills later on.

People love these because they look really nice and are a good way to give people you love a nice graduation gift. Why give them money in a card that yes they will like, but wouldn't remember as much as something special like this. Leis aren't really as big in some schools so take advantage of that and make you grad feel loved and special.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and if you are interested I will make you another listing if you want the other two options that are cheaper.

Thanks for looking!
