4 Fun DIY Graduation Party Ideas

    Graduation is coming up and you’re looking to plan the perfect party to celebrate in style. You deserve it! We made the web rounds to look for four awesome DIY projects you can start working on to make your event go off without a hitch. As we’re sure you know, handmade parties are not only more fun to prepare, but they’re also more personalized. So whether it’s you or one of your friends or family members who’s graduating, check out these crafty graduation party ideas!


    graduation cap bottle toppers

    How cute are these graduation cap bottle toppers? To make them, cut out squares from black card stock and glue on a bit of yarn or string in your school colors. Unravel the ends of the yarn or string to give it the appearance of a tassel. Glue or tape the whole thing onto bottle tops to make them look like grad caps. Get the full rundown at Mixbook!



    table centerpiece

    So your parents ordered ten million extra copies of senior portraits…now we know what to do with them! Cut out your photos in fun shapes with a crafting knife and tape them up to the walls, protect them with a waterproof sealant and pile them next to the drinks as coasters, or place them in a centerpiece of flowers. Get the full how-to at Pear Tree Greetings.



    graduation pillow

    Whether you’re packing up for a dorm room or a new apartment, pillows can be a useful and sweet reminder of home and loved ones. Find the tutorial for making your own on FaveCrafts and then have your friends and family sign away at your party.



    cookie graduation party

    Looking for the awesome theme for your graduation party? We love the idea of a “smart cookie” party, celebrating your educational success while giving the perfect excuse to eat cookies! Put your Pinterest recipes to the test—and entice friends and family into the fun—and create a major spread of sugared happiness. Check out more photos from Love the Day’s smart cookie theme party!
