As I'm writing this article, my graduation date is exactly one month away. My roommate and I have been discussing how we want to decorate our graduation caps. The problem: we both have absolutely no idea. Even Pinterest hasn't been able to help us! So what do you do when you have a million ideas? Well, hopefully I can help you decide.
1. An inspirational quote
Everyone has a quote that means something to them. It could be from a book, a show/movie, or even a celebrity. If you have good penmanship that makes it even better. This will also leave your design more open for personal details. You can add flowers, a border, glitter, rhinestones, whatever you want!
2. A pun
If you want something a bit less serious, go for something with a joke. There are plenty of graduation and college puns to be made. If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you could go with "Game of Loans." Getting your bachelors of science? "I'm done with with B.S." Just because you have a degree, doesn't mean you have to be serious about it.
3. Something Disney
Who doesn't love Disney? Just pick your favorite movie and there's probably a graduation cap design you can use.
4. Be honest
College is expensive, there's no use hiding it. Your school may have gotten all of your money but at least you can stick it to them one last time.
5. Show off your fandom pride
The Office, Friends, Harry Potter, Star Wars, there's a chance your apart of some nerdy fandom. Whether you're a closeted fan or full-on obsessed, now is your time to let your flag fly.
6. A shout-out
Of course, you could always say thank you to your biggest supporters. Whether that's mom and dad, your dog, or Starbucks, it's never a bad idea to show a little gratitude.
7. Something with your major
You've worked hard to get your degree, you should be proud of it! From accounting to zoology, show off all your hard work with an homage to your field of study.
8. BFF caps
Who needs friendship bracelets when you could have matching degrees? This works especially well if you and you best friend are in the same college, and even better if you can snag seats next to each other.
9. School pride
If you can't pick your own theme (or you just really love your university) you can always show off your school spirit with your team's colors.
10. When in doubt: throw some glitter on it
You can never go wrong with a little sparkle.
Whether your already set up with a job after school or you still have no idea what you're doing with your life, this is your day! So, don't stress if you can't come up with a graduation cap idea, because this is just the beginning, my dear. You've got the rest of your life to figure things out.
