DIY Paper Tassels

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that paper tassels are my go-to décor item. It’s not hard to see why. They are easy to make and customizable. For this occasion, make them in the graduate’s school colors and hang them around the party venue.

Make a photo string set using pictures of the graduate over the years. This will be sure to bring back memories! Another idea is to include an instant photo booth at the party. Have guests take pictures through the night (or day) and let them clip them to the photo string. This way more memories are created during the graduation party.

DIY Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Grad Caps

I made these for a graduation dinner party and my guests absolutely loved them. Who would think that Reese’s could have such an adorable use? Cut a two inch square of card stock or glitter paper and attach it to the top of the candy with tape. You can also take a small piece of ribbon and glue it to the square to create a tassel.
