Graduation Party Drinks

The graduation season is upon us, and chances are you know someone who is graduating from college, high school, middle school and even kindergarten. If you plan on throwing a graduation party or celebrating a graduate this year, why not add some fun graduation decor and drinks to your graduation party.

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!
