– MAKE IT! Bottle Topper with College Logos –
After the aisle stroll and the hat toss it’s time for a college graduation party! We call this graduation party, “Hat’s Off to the Class of 2021!” These colorful bottle toppers look like graduation caps when perched atop beverage bottles. They make memorable party decorations on bottles of beer, water, or wine, plus show pride for the alma mater as you honor your graduate.

The uniqueness of this DIY project is the logo paper from your grad’s university. I was lucky enough to find this University of Washington (Go Huskies!) scrapbooking paper in a nearby craft store, but there are many sites selling wrapping paper or scrapbook paper with college logos. The logo paper is glued on top of a square of poster board to make the top of the graduation cap sturdy.
The mini-tassels are a great find from Hobby Lobby. They’re actually 2 inch drapery tassels, but they were so perfect and inexpensive I couldn’t resist. They are available in gold, red, black, and cream. As you can see they are priced $2.49 for four tassels. Buying them sure beats making them from scratch for saving time. YouTube has many tutorials on how to make tassels using yarn or embroidery thread, if you are inclined to hand make them.
