Do it yourself graduation cap

Whether commemorating your graduation or cheering on a friend or family member, help them make their big day even more special with a DIY graduation cap.

Here are five tips to get you started:

Proper tools and materials are key

Before you start hot-gluing pearls and sequins to your graduate’s cap, be sure you have the right tools and materials on hand.

You’ll need some strong scissors (think fabric or mesh Cutting shears), a pencil or pen, craft glue, and plenty of embellishments like rhinestones, ribbons, feathers, etc.

Choose a base material

Many online retailers sell pre-made mortar boards made of paperboard or foam core, which can be a great starting point for your decorations.

However, you can also use a regular poster board or cardboard from a recycled cereal box. Just be sure to choose something that’s sturdy enough to hold up to your planned decorations.

Consider the shape of the graduation cap

The classic mortarboard is square with a flat top, but some schools and universities have unique cap shapes. Before you start gluing on feathers and fringe, ensure you know what shape your graduate’s cap will be so you can plan your decorations accordingly.

Have fun with the details

This is your chance to let your creativity shine! If you’re making a cap for a close friend or family member, consider incorporating personal details like inside jokes, shared interests, or photos.

Don’t forget the finishing touches

Once you’ve added all your desired embellishments, it’s time to add the finishing touches. A little bit of ribbon or twine can help secure loose items, and a quick coat of clear spray paint can help protect fragile decorations from damage.

With these five tips, you’re ready to create your DIY graduation cap! So get out your supplies and start making something special for your graduate. Best of luck!
