Fun Graduation Cap Decoration Ideas For 2018 Grads

If you are a space nerd or claim yourself an explorer, you might consider choosing the Star Wars as your decoration theme.

First of all, I want to congratulate you in advance on getting your Bachelors, or Masters, or Ph.D. in whatever field you liked. It must have been an incredible journey full of tons of adventures, ups, and downs.

Before you take off on the next stage of your life, set aside the opportunity to absorb everything and acknowledge how far you've come. Your graduation cap and gown not only embody all of your hard work and unprecedented achievements, however, the individual you've turned out to be in recent years. The decoration for a graduation cap is turning into a fun convention for college graduates. It must be a fun way to praise your voyage and make this minute yours! If you’re googling for graduation cap decoration ideas, I have you incorporated with everything from entertaining cap ideas to "aww" cap ideas that will make you question why you hadn't imagined of that in any case.

Game Of Thrones

If you are a huge fan of the “Game Of Thrones” TV show, you are going to appreciate these following ideas a lot. Show off your spirit and love for the G.O.T. It’s time to celebrate even if “you know nothing.” Hand pick your favorite dialogue and theme color from the show and add your own details. I want to mention the quote by Tyrion Lannister, “Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.”


Personally speaking, I often feel like my college life is part of a game like a Pacman, or angry bird, or even Super Mario. I feel that way because you may have found yourself catching up with the course material or for an ‘A’ in any particular class. You may lose sometimes, but you also win. So, you might want to consider your love for video games in your graduation cap decoration. The list of popular video games and cartoons start from Tom & Jerry to Super Mario to Pokemon to Pacman to Candy Crush and still, the list goes on and on. The choice is yours. It would definitely look funny and cool.

Star Wars

If you are a space nerd or claim yourself an explorer, you might consider choosing the Star Wars as your decoration theme for instance. Again, the list of Space movies and books is infinite. This movie line " NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS" OR "MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU" is excellent for the Star Wars loving graduate-to-be. Whatever the probabilities maybe, you should go after your dreams and go positively in the future you have visualized for yourself. This grad cap would recall you for just that.

Flowery design

The flowery styled graduation cap idea isn't just fantastic to be that as it may, it additionally enables you to share a notable graduation quote on your extraordinary day. You may include a couple of your most favorite quotes which you might have lived throughout your college life to influence your graduation to top exceptional.

Tech design

You might have someone special in your life that you couldn’t have made it without. Well, it’s a great opportunity to consider thanking him/her or expressing your feelings to him/her. In addition to appreciating your loved ones, keep in mind about technologies and tools that helped you earn that degree. For instance, Google, Chegg, or Reddit. Thus, you may want to consider adding tech-based theme if you would like to do it.

I have tons of ideas in my mind so I’ll just list them below for you to explore:

Major Specific (Medical, Business, Engineering, Psychology, etc.)

For Food Lovers (Starbucks Coffee, Dunkin Donuts, McDonald’s, Pizza, etc.)

Nature Lovers (Beach, Hiking, Snowboarding, etc. [photos/theme])

Sports Lovers (Football, Baseball, Soccer, etc.)

Animal Lovers (Dinosaur, Cat, Dog, etc.)

Sorority/ Fraternity/ Greek Societies spirits would be also cool

Super Heroes (Wonder woman, Spiderman, Superman, etc.)

Emoji Lovers (Create your own group # or have the funniest emoji on your cap)

…. and the list goes on and on….

(Of course, you can explore these ideas in depth using my best friend Google.)

It’s your day! You want to make it something very unique to you by your hand instead of buying it online. I want to tell you that you don’t have to worry about being stand out in the crowd because you are UNIQUE and whatever you will do is going to be unique as well.

To The Teacher Who Was So Much More

Thank you for everything

I think it's fair to say that most people remember at least one teacher who had a lasting impact on them. I have been incredibly lucky to have several teachers who I will never forget, but one individual takes the cake. So here's to you: thank you for all you have done.

Thank you for teaching me lessons not just in the textbook.

Although you taught a great lecture, class was never just limited to the contents of the course. Debates and somewhat heated conversations would arise between classmates over politics and course material, and you always encouraged open discussion. You embraced the idea of always having an opinion, and always making it be heard, because why waste your voice? You taught me to fight for things I believed in, and to hold my ground in an argument. You taught me to always think of others before doing and speaking. You showed me the power of kindness. Thank you for all the important lessons that may not have been included in the curriculum.

Thank you for believing in me.

Especially in my senior year, you believed in me when other teachers didn't. You showed me just what I could accomplish with a positive and strong attitude. Your unwavering support kept me going, especially when I melted into a puddle of tears weekly in your office. You listened to my stupid complaints, understood my overwhelming stress-induced breakdowns, and told me it was going to be okay. Thank you for always being there for me.

Thank you for inspiring me.

You are the epitome of a role model. Not only are you intelligent and respected, but you have a heart of gold and emit beautiful light where ever you go. You showed me that service to others should not be looked at as a chore, but something to enjoy and find yourself in. And I have found myself in giving back to people, thanks to your spark. Thank you for showing me, and so many students, just how incredible one person can be.

Thank you for changing my life.

Without you, I truly would not be where I am today. As cliche as it sounds, you had such a remarkable impact on me and my outlook on life. Just about a year has passed since my graduation, and I'm grateful to still keep in touch. I hope you understand the impact you have made on me, and on so many other students. You are amazing, and I thank you for all you have done.

Writing Saved My Sanity

Write it all down when you can't talk to anyone.


I love writing.

I have since elementary school, and I've dreamed of becoming a published author. I started off writing stupid plays in elementary school, then it grew it almost writing a full-blown novel in middle school. I have no idea where that thing went to. It was all notebook paper and bad writing. In high school, my writing was kinda pushed to the side so I could focus on school. When I entered college, I started writing small poems about my now ex-boyfriend.

I was scared to express myself to him sometimes, the intensity of my feelings for him scared me. So instead of telling him, I wrote them down. When I tried to share them with him, he hated it. He thought writing down feelings was weird and creepy. So I didn't share anything else with him. When we finally broke up for good, everything just poured out of me. What I couldn't express verbally, I wrote or typed out.

I always have ideas flowing through my head. They never cease and I wouldn't want them to. Writing gives me an escape, from stress, work, school, or fights. It gives me a place to vent and to be open with everything. This is a reason I love writing for Odyssey, not only has this place brought me amazing friends but revived my love for writing. I'm never without my notebook anymore, I'd get distracted in class by an idea and have to write I think then and there.

I love sharing my more personal writing with close friends, especially my poems as of late. I found that I have a voice for young women who find themselves in a toxic relationship much like mine was. I want to speak out and show them that you can grow from the bullshit. It may take some time, but you will be better.

Writing saved my sanity. It allows me to express myself without having to use my actual voice. Anyone who knows me, knows I hate public speaking. I tend to psych myself out leading up to it. My current projects include writing for Odyssey every week, I'm in the process of trying to continue my short stories, and I'm excited to announce that I'm currently working on my very first poetry book!

Writing has given me so much, and I'm so looking forward to making a career out of something I love so much.
