25 Of The Prettiest DIY Graduation Caps You’ll Ever See

I’ll be honest with you guys: I had no idea that decorated graduation caps were such a big thing. I know, don’t I sound like your typical mom trying to be cool by pointing out Internet trends you’ve known about for months? Cute! Anyway, back in my day (cue crickety old man voice), we all just wore our grad caps as they were. Sure, some super creative people added a cool extra tassel or their initials or something, but no one was full on painting their caps, or attaching fun little accessories to them. I wish they were though, because that makes a boring graduation ceremony a lot more exciting.

Looking to decorate your own cap? You definitely will want to take inspiration from the Internet – Pinterest and Instagram are full of amazing DIY grad caps that probably took more time than studying for finals did (no judgement here). Even if your school won’t let you decorate your cap (boring), you can still enjoy looking through these photos and imagining what ~could have been. Get ideas for your own cap this year or in the coming years – this is a trend that doesn’t seem to be dying anytime soon. There are tons of options out there, but here are 25 of the absolute prettiest graduation caps you’ll ever see. One of them has to be motivation enough to get started on some crafting!
