Is your child graduating this year? Make these handmade leis and host a Dr. Seuss themed graduation party with these fun party supplies.
Disclosure: As an Oriental Trading Ambassador I’m provided with product to facilitate any tutorials I provide.
The twins are graduating from middle school in a little over a month. They won’t be celebrating at school this year due to the school closures but I still wanted to be able to do something at home to acknowledge their achievements.
The school will be opening just for one day for them to clean out their lockers, pick up their certificates, and turn in their text books. However, they are missing out on their end of year graduation ceremony and trip to Knott’s Berry Farm.
Oriental Trading came through for me though with some really fun party supplies and candy, so I’ve put together these graduation leis for them.
These graduation leis were so quick and easy to make and the kids are going to love them.
What you need
- Net sleeve
- Curling ribbon
- Cord, ribbon or ties
Before we get into the detailed instructions I want to show you something really fun that I found on the Oriental Trading website.
I was able to personalize labels for each of the kids to pop onto Hershey’s kisses. If you didn’t already know, Hershey’s are Flynn’s candy of choice so he’s going to be so excited to see these.
Let’s get back to making those leis now which you can include these personalized Hershey’s into. You can also pop them into a bowl for a graduation celebration. I’ll be doing both.
The net sleeves to make graduation leis make this project so quick and easy. You could probably make three leis from one package.
Place your candy inside and as you go, tie a piece of curling ribbon on either side to secure it in place.
Once your lei is long enough tie the end together with more ribbon. You’ll need to thread it through the holes of the net to secure it to ensure the ribbon doesn’t slide off.
Fold your money as if you are making a fan and tie that onto sections of the lei using cord or ribbon.
That’s all there is to it. Your kids will be so happy to have a celebration at home this year.
