graduation diploma centerpieces

with a trip to the dollar tree and 
a hunt for some rocks, 
you too can make some centerpieces 
for a graduation party.

centerpieces such as these 
graduation diploma centerpieces:
here's the how-to:
make sure it's the RED one you pick 
cuz they do have other colors.

i had this foam from walmart but 
dollar tree also sells foam blocks.

it doesn't matter, as long as
you can fit a piece snugly in the cover.
now it's time for this:
then head on outside to get this:
now take some white wrapping paper roll and: 

when you cover the cylinder, 
you'll have about a 3 inch space from the top 
where you can do this:
ok so i had this Martha Stewart poker thing 
for hole poking i got from michael's ages ago 
but you can use a Phillips screwdriver too.

the photo props were also from the dollar tree.
i pushed the photo props into the holes, filled it back up with the silver filler,  and there ya go.
this one's a double diploma:
now that's something to write home about!
