I recently designed and made these easy DIY graduation party centerpieces for a friend graduating from The Ohio State University! OH-IO! Of course, the centerpieces were scarlet and gray (red basket filler and tissue paper and silver Hershey’s kisses), and I just used glassware of varying heights that I had around the house as "vases". Plus, I based the color scheme of the centerpieces on our new line of Graduation License Plate Invitations and Party Favors. Check out some close-ups of my centerpieces below, and make sure to check out our Graduation Centerpiece Ideas for more inspiration, too!
Apart from these Graduation License Plate Invitations, I also used these fun (and matching!) Graduation License Plate Water Bottles to help keep everyone cool. Coordinating invitations and party decor really helped tie my theme together.
To make the centerpieces, I layered 2-3 pieces of tissue paper and folded them in half. I then cut the paper in 1-inch fringes that were 4-5 inches long. I rolled the tissue and stuck one roll in each glass.
Then, I added basket filler and Hershey kisses to each glass to cover up the bottom half of the tissue paper, making sure to let some of the basket filler hang over the rim. I grouped glasses of different heights together and scattered filler, silver bead necklaces, and kisses around the centerpiece on the table. Don't forget to fluff the tissue tops to add some drama!
Overall, the centerpieces turned out cute, and I didn't have to break the bank to make them. Enjoy decorating for your next graduation party, and congrats to your grad from everyone here at Party411.com!
