DIY Graduation Caps, 2 Ways

Accessories, DIY, Featured  /   /  By Aimee Santos

I remember during my college graduation, it was quite entertaining to see how each student personalized their graduation cap. So many of them were extremely fun and creative! With graduations just around the corner, I was inspired to come up with two different DIY’s to help any future grad stand out in a sea of black caps. Hope you enjoy!!

DIY Flower Crown Graduation Cap

Materials:

Steps:

1. Wrap the flower vine into a circle. Make sure the circumference is the same size as your head. You want the flower crown to rest comfortably on your head.

2. Once you get the size right, wrap the flower vine around a second time.

3. Trim any excess length off the flower vine, then wrap the ends with floral tape to secure them in place. (Note that stretching the floral tape exposes the stickiness which helps.)

4. Wrap the floral tape in 2 other places on the flower crown to keep it even more secure.

5. Remove a few of the leaves and flowers.
