3 Simple Graduation Crafts

My son just graduated from High School (cue the tears), which calls for celebration. No party is complete without a few DIY projects, especially when they involve my Cricut. I know Graduation season is over, but a couple of these crafts can be customized for birthdays or other events, so go ahead and Pin it for later!

Graduation Cap Card Box


This is my take on an idea I saw on Pinterest. I used an Amazon box with the top flaps folded in, (or you can cut them off) so the top of the box is open. I used a piece of black foam board from the Dollar Store, cut to size with a hot knife for the top of the hat. I also used the hot knife to cut a slot in the top large enough to accommodate cards. I attached the top using glue dots, but you could also use hot glue. I used a large button from my craft stash and tassel to finish it off and wrote "cards" on the front with a metallic paint pen.

Glittery Card Stock Cake Topper


I used my Cricut Maker to cut "happy graduation" out of Cricut Sparkle/Shimmer Paper. I attached it to a wooden skewer using glue dots. My son does not like cake, so I made a donut tower instead and poked the topper in the center!

Pool Noodle Graduate Wreath


I used a pool noodle formed into a circle and secured with duct tape to make the form for the wreath. I spray painted the form with 2 coats of black gloss paint. While the paint was drying I used my Cricut Maker to cut the number "2019" out of Cricut Sparkle/Shimmer Paper. I used glue dots to attach the numbers to the graduation cap. Once the wreath was dry, I used t-pins to attach the cap to the top of the wreath and glue dots to adhere the 3x5 pictures around the wreath.
