Graduation cap decorating ideas, gowns generally known as because of their appearance, are typically flat caps, square with a tassel on top. Usually they have done in a single color for entire graduating class, which may be difficult for your family to get you in crowd. To highlight, decorate your cover with words, pictures and other decorations, but make sure you check with your school and teachers first to see if there are rules against this.
Words are an easy way to graduate cap decorating ideas. Think of names, phrases or letters that you want to show. Maybe you want to put name of a family member or friend who inspired you throughout your education, name of a friend who died or even your own name so people can find. You could join school letters at top of lid, or alternatively you can write just a short sentence as “Done”! Buy cards from a craft store or cut colored construction paper and paste on top.
If allowed, consider painting top of lid of a different color for cap decorating ideas. Using spray paint and cover entire top flat section in desired color. You can also connect almost anything you can think of using hot glue. If you think there is a figurine funky or funny looks, paste. Find flowers or ribbons in school colors and connect. Or glue on small shrine that represents your time in school. So if you were cheerleader pompoms glue mini, mini balls I was in football team or musical notes if you were in band.
