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.
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.
