It’s graduation season! If you’re attending a grad party (or throwing one yourself) personalize gifts and decor with MIY touches. From stylish gifts that transition easily to a dorm or apartment to hip decor that the grad will love, these handmade ideas are not only fun to make, but super quick, too!
Coffee filters dyed with the grad’s school colors make the perfect backdrop for photos, while confetti streamers add a bit of glam to the festivities. For a quick gift, decorate purchased items. Wrap yarn around hangers, dip-dye business cards, or add washi tape to a journal. And what grad wouldn’t love money? A handmade gift card holder or mason jar filled with money diplomas and topped with a hat are perfect ways to dress up a simple gift. Smarty owl art or a frame signed by the guests at the party are wonderful reminders of accomplishments and are fun artwork for a new apartment or dorm. And don’t forget the snacks! Nutella puppy chow will have guests begging for the recipe.
