Graduations are occasions worth celebrating. And if you’re going to celebrate, you might as well go all out! These graduation party straw toppers are inspired by our cute graduation cap cupcake toppers. We also have some fun treat boxes that guests can take home when the party is over.

Altogether, these craft projects complement each other to make the perfect grad party decorations. A little can go a long way, and these simple designs are beautiful accents for creating the festive environment your graduate deserves!

Caps Off to the Grad

Much like our cupcake toppers and wrappers, these graduation party straw toppers are super easy to make. You will only need a few simple tools and materials plus our template for the graduation cap. Once you have everything ready, there are only three steps to follow!

We cut our graduation party straw toppers onto blue and dark gray metallic paper, and our tassels onto gold metallic paper. Assemble your mini grad caps with tape or glue, and then use a small circle punch to create a hole in the caps and tassels to stick your straws through. Easy peasy and such a simple way to make it the best grad party ever!

  3. Slide cap onto straw; then add the gold paper tassel on top.
