It’s your special day, so stand out from the crowd by adding your own personal flair to your grad cap! Here is an easy yet stunning graduation cap decoration idea using simply artificial flowers and hot glue.
Choose flower varieties and colors that represent your personality! For example, sunflowers represent a sunny and jolly disposition, while lilies would be a wonderful choice for someone looking for a softer, more delicate touch. Choose two types of flowers in varying sizes for a visually impressive arrangement. As artificial flowers come in shapes and shades not strictly found in nature, you can really get creative with the layout and design.
We used 3D puff paints to personalize the DIY graduation cap decorating, but you can also use glitter pens or 3D fabric markers. Additionally, rather than writing your name, you can personalize the grad cap with a favorite quote, message, or simply your class year (“Class of ___”).

Directions for DIY Graduation Cap Decorating
Once your flowers are trimmed (before gluing), position the flowers to your liking. Once you are satisfied with the layout, use the hot glue gun to add glue to the bottom of the flower. Apply to the graduation cap and hold down 3-4 seconds to secure. Continue this until all of your flowers are glued down and dried.
