How To: Grad Cap Design By Eliza brown & evelyn maxey

Step 1:

Think about the theme that you’d like to have for your grad cap. Do you want to feature a funny meme that was popular this year or a pun? Are you looking to create a design that’s specific to the college you’ll be attending and want to proudly decorate your cap in the school colors? Keep in mind that you’ll be creating a piece of art that celebrates one of the most pivotal events in your life.

Step 2:

Once you’ve decided on the theme for your grad cap design, it’s time to get your supplies! While you’ll probably find everything you need at most arts and crafts stores, you may be able to find similar crafting supplies around your house or at your local grocery store.

Step 3:

Place your grad cap facedown on a sheet of white paper and trace around it with a pencil. Use a ruler to determine the location of the tassel button at the center of the grad cap, then sketch out your design idea.

Step 4:

Using your sketch as a guide, add letters, gems, foam stickers, or any other decorative elements. Adhesive letters and foam stickers don’t cling well to the textured surface of paper (ex: glitter paper), so it’s best to hot-glue all decorations to your grad cap to ensure everything stays in place.

Step 5:

Once the glue has dried completely, remember to reattach your tassel to the newly decorated cap. While this sounds like a no-brainer, it is easy to forget this important step!
