graduation glass hat centerpieces

hey do you know anyone graduating pretty soon?
i would have to answer YES YES to that question.

both my kids graduate in a few weeks 
(from middle and high school) and i am 
skeedadaling along making grad party stuff.

like these easy peasy graduation hat glass centerpieces:
the inspiration for these came from a stop at home goods, where my love of meri meri products 
can be found at times.
they're so dang cute.
you're supposed to wear them as party hats but i turned them into centerpieces for my kids' grad party.

all you need is a label which i made with my cricut,
a dollar tree 6-8" tall vase, and some dollar tree sparkly filler.
i made a label of my kids' names, 
the school they graduated from,
 and the school/college they're going to.

then i placed the hat on top and pulled the elastic around like so to keep it in place.
wasn't that easy?
good thing you didn't have to write a tutorial about it cuz that takes twice as long. lol
come back next week for the diploma...

  7. I don't have a Home Goods store in my area but we have a TJ Maxx. I don't know if they would carry these graduation hats but would love to find them somewhere to make these center pieces for my daughters HS graduation party. Very cute! Do you know the size of these hats so I know I get the right hats to fit on the vases? Thanks so much for sharing your idea!

    1. i'm not sure the exact size because i no longer have the centerpieces but the hats are about 5 x 5 inch mortarboard squares. i was trying to find them online-the only source is here:
      https://www.ebay.com/i/263314561029?chn=ps
      but it comes with different items as well-congrats to your daughter and thanks so much for visiting! :>D
