How to Make a Graduation Cap Centerpiece with Flowers

May 12, 2015

Take your graduation celebration to the next level with a unique centerpiece using simply a vase, flowers, and an old graduation cap! If you don’t have access to an old cap, pick one up at your local party or costume supply shop.

This DIY graduation centerpiece is so easy to put together, and can be recreated in less than five minutes for a last-minute festive touch. For this project, we used the vibrant and fun Floral Embrace assortment from the 1800Flowers.com graduation flowers collection, which arrived in the perfect sized vase for this purpose.

Directions for DIY Graduation Cap Centerpiece

If your flower arrangement comes in an appropriate vase, all you have to do is place the vase into the graduation cap and secure the fabric around the vase. You can secure it further by simply placing a piece of double sided tape onto the vase and press the fabric from the cap onto the tape for 3-4 seconds to secure.

If you are gathering the vase and flowers separately, first add the flower food and water to the vase. Trim the flowers to the appropriate fit and arrange in the vase. Then, simply place into the graduation cap and secure with tape.
