GRADUATION PARTY IDEAS ON A BUDGET
DIY Party Backdrop
Smart Party Planning has this great idea using dollar store plastic tablecloths to make this cute backdrop, and you can use your school colors to give it a custom look!
Glitter Candle with Class Year
I’ve taken this idea from Fun Holiday Crafts. Instead of a New Year’s number candle, why not put the class year on it?
Mini Galvanized Drink Tubs
Thanks to the TipToe Fairy for this super cute idea on how to make your own galvanized pails using dollar store buckets!
Stephanie suggests using a spray paint with a hammered texture finish.
School Colors Cupcake Stand
And how about this cupcake stand from Sarah with an H that can be personalized with your own school colors? This is made using dollar store items!
We sisters do a lot of diy projects, and let me tell you . . . Home Depot is the place to get your spray paint. They have so many colors right now!
Repurposed Frame to Hold Photos
Find some frames at your local thrift store, remove the glass, paint a cool color, string some wire, and you’ve got yourself a super cute way to display photos at your graduation party! Thanks to Picky Stitch for this clever idea!
Free Printable Graduation Banners
Thanks to Paper Trail Design for the free printables! Pennant banners are an easy way to add party decor. Not only do they have this free printable banner, they also include free printables for cupcake toppers, photo booth decor, water bottle wrappers, and more!
For best results, print on cardstock.
Tissue Paper Graduation Year Sign
Thanks to Sugar Bee Crafts for this graduating class year display idea! It doesn’t get much thriftier than this, folks!! And, again, you can use your school colors to give it a custom look!
Mandy does suggest this hot knife for easiest cutting results. . . though not a necessity to be able to make this!
Graduation Cupcake Stand
What about this super cute cupcake stand from One Simple Bliss?
*TIP– purchase your cake boards from a local cake shop! Then, you can buy singles of different sizes rather than having to buy an entire pack!*
Chocolate Graduation Cap Pops
Thanks to Edible Crafts for this easy idea, and who doesn’t LOVE chocolate?!
Congrats Lawn Sign
Let guests know they have the right place with this low-cost sign! If you have a Cricut machine, you can make your letters even cuter!
Better Homes and Gardens has more ideas, too!
Graduation Party Drinks
The Idea Room has this great idea! With just a few supplies, like black cardstock and some cute straws, you can make some fun graduation decor!
Paper straws are always cheaper to buy on amazon than anywhere else!
Graduation Cap Centerpieces
Use recycled dishes (or dollar store dishes) to make these graduation cap centerpieces. I think they’d do well as serving dishes for some finger food, too! Thanks to Cook and Craft Me Crazy!
Snixy Kitchen has this in a post for a wedding, but why not use the same idea for a graduation party? Goodwill is the best place to find an old suitcase like this!
You’ll love this diy project that will keep the kids at the party entertained for hours!
