DIY | Graduation Hats



This month is graduation month for our school. I wanted to share these easy DIY Graduation caps. I used these for my middle daughters Kindergarden graduation. They are so sweet and really easy to make.

Here's what you will need:

  • Black Cardstock 12x12
  • Scizzors
  • Glue or Glue Runner
  • Hole Punch {kind that you can punch in middle of paper}
  • Tape
  • Paper Cutter
  • Yarn

1st Step: Fold corners as shown in picture, it will look like a diamond shape when you are finished. See picture below




 Once it looks like diamond, as shown above you are going to fold it as shown here. It's about an inch at the fold. you are going to do that at each corner and glue down as shown in the picture below.


Then you are going to punch a hole in the middle of the hat.
You are going to need to 2- 12 x 2 inch strips.
 You want to glue one of the strips ends together. So it will create a circle.



Next take that circle and tape the sides to the hat.
 Then fold it into an oval shape as shown here and glue the triangular sides to the outer circle.
 Once it's glued together fold as so in this picture.



 It will then look like the cap.

Cut off any excess paper sticking out, as shown here.
Next get your yarn to make your tassell Cut about 12 inches.
Then you are going to wrap it around the second stripe of paper.

Once wrapped around completely cut it, as shown here.
 Then take another piece of yarn as shown here to tie the tassel together.


Once tied cut the bottom of the yarn, as shown here.

 It will look like this.
 Then you are going to pinch the tassel together as shown here and cut another piece of yarn about 3 inches and tie about 1/2 inch down the tassel, as shown below.


 Cut the end pieces of the knot.
Whola you are done with the tassel.
 Next you are going to take the end of the tassel and put it through the hole you punched earlier. Turn the hat upside down and tie a knot in the tassel and then tape it down pretty tightly, as show below.


 and Whola!! your done! Isn't it so sweet. I love this and can't wait to use it on my little one when she graduates pre-k. That will be in about 3-4 years. LOL I'm already planning it. :)




 Here are some other things I made for decoration for the graduation. I loved it!

What is the Truth?


What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to http://www.calvarychapel.com/?show=Churches and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
