Graduation Cap Ideas

While it’s certainly an option to leave your graduation cap pristine and stark black during commencement, it’s become more prevalent in modern times to spruce things up a little bit. Some people enjoy adding a large glittery image to the top of their cap, while others might choose a more understated design like the letters of their Greek organization.

Decorating your graduation cap can show off your personality, display what matters the most to you, and make you stand out among the crowd of other graduates. Not sure how to decorate your cap? There are lots of options and the ones listed below can be an excellent start for your brainstorming.

If you prefer to go with something simple and easy, all it takes is visiting a craft store for some adhesive letters to attach to your cap. You can add your name, the year, or whatever other information you want to convey to the audience. This is an inexpensive option that requires minimal crafting experience.

Those who have a bit more creative skill can consider hand-painting their graduation cap. Put on some lettering and create a design that shows people who you are and what you’ve accomplished to be standing where you are today. Even if you aren’t an expert painter, this is a fun way to commemorate the special day.

Markers, stickers, paints, and watercolors all make for great options to take the design from your brain and make it a reality. Or you can leave the design aspect to experts by purchasing the graduation cap design that shows off your personality, culture, or favorite quote. The sky is truly the limit, so think big and get started!
