Gather your materials

Before you start creating your graduation centerpiece, you’ll need to gather your materials. Consider using a combination of flowers, balloons, and graduation-themed decorations. You’ll also need a vase, foam block, scissors, wire cutters, tape, and possibly a hot glue gun.

Create your base

Start by creating the base for your centerpiece. Cut a foam block to fit in your vase and secure it in place with tape. You can also use a hot glue gun to ensure the foam stays in place. Make sure the foam is tall enough to keep all of your decorations in place, but not so tall that it sticks out of the top of the vase.

Add your decorations

Once you have your base, it’s time to start adding your decorations. Use wire cutters to trim flowers or other decorations to the desired length and stick them into the foam block. You can also add balloons or graduation-themed items like miniature diplomas or caps. Try to create a balanced arrangement by spreading out your decorations evenly throughout the centerpiece.

Add finishing touches

Once you have all of your decorations in place, take a step back and evaluate the centerpiece. Add any finishing touches, such as tucking in stray pieces of greenery or tying a ribbon around the vase. You may also want to consider adding a small card with the graduate’s name or a congratulatory message.

Display your centerpiece

Finally, it’s time to display your graduation centerpiece. Choose a prominent location, such as a dining table or mantlepiece, and place your vase in the center. Consider adding additional decorations, such as confetti or streamers, to make the centerpiece really stand out. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your creation!
