graduation cap craft

Materials (for a full sized cap to fit a child):

Instructions:

  • Set one aside.  On the other square snip triangles out of the corners to form a sort of cross shape as shown in the image to the right.
craft instructions
 
  • Fold the sides of the cross (see yellow dotted lines in image).
     
  • Staple the edges together where they meet (see yellow circles in the image).
     
  • Repeat with the other sides to form a "cup shape" that the child will wear on their head.
     
craft instructions
 
  • Staple or glue the square on top of the cup shape to form your grad cap.
     
  • Optional:  Make a tassel with wool:
      
    • wrap a piece of wool around a 3 1/2 inch disk, your hand or a piece of cardboard about 20 times
       
    • Tie a long piece of wool (about 24") through the loop
       
    • remove wool from base and tie a 4" piece of wool around the loop you've made about 3/4" down from the top
       
    • Snip the ends at the bottom to form the tassel.
       
    • Staple or tape the tassel to the cap
