These graduation straws are so easy to make and they add some fun pizzaz to your party.  I love how sometimes even the simplest of crafts can add a big impact to the overlook of a table setting or party decor.

All you need are some straws and cute serving glasses…even with a plastic cup these straws would be really adorable.  To make the graduation caps all you need is some black card stock.  Cut out a 2 inch square and then poke a hole in the exact middle of the square using the point of a sharp pencil…this is where you will put the straw through.  Then cut a rectangle that measures 5 x 2 inches.  Roll the rectangle into a circle and glue the two ends together with hot glue.  Then glue the circle on the square.  Slide the graduation cap onto the  straw.  Add a little dab of glue if needed to hold the graduation cap in place on the straw.

I also added a little black band around the bottles and added a graduation date of 2014.  You could also add your favorite graduates name, or other words that fit your party like congratulations!

    Hey, thanks for this! I am creating these for my daughter’s high school grad party. I found that the rectangular strips worked best for me when they were 1 in long by 5 inches. So happy that you posted this. So happy to have these great ideas!

    I made these for my son’s graduation party in June. They were fun to make and so cool. Thank you for the idea, directions, and pictures!


  1. […] Graduation Party Drinks – I know the title of this sounds a little misleading, but the idea is to make little graduation caps and then insert a straw through them to be used as decoration in a graduation party. All you would need to do is use that graduation cap link we talked about earlier and minimize it. This is a super cool decoration everyone will appreciate! […]
