How To Draw A Grad Cap

Do you want to know how to draw a grad cap? Of course you do! Well, it’s easier than you think — just follow these incredibly simple steps and you’ll be putting the finishing touches on your own cap in no time. First, you’ll need some supplies to get started: colored markers, construction paper, scissors, and glue.

1. Sketch Your Design

Grab your markers and start dreaming up your grad cap design. It can be whatever you want — a monogram, an inspirational quote, a family crest, or something entirely unique to your personal style are all great options. As you sketch, be sure to leave plenty of extra space around the edges. You’ll need it later.

Once you have your design sketched out, it’s time to break out the scissors and cut. First, make sure to cut two pieces of construction paper, one for the base of your grad cap and one for the front part that wraps over the top. Measure each out a few inches longer than your sketch, to make sure you can wrap the sides around.

2. Cut and Glue the Pieces

Now, lay the two pieces of construction paper side-by-side on a flat surface. Carefully cut one of the longer pieces in half (this will be the front piece that wraps over the top). Then, use the glue stick to join the two pieces together along the longest edge.

Once your grad cap base is assembled, it’s time to add your design. Trace the sketch onto the front piece, and then carefully cut out your design. You can also use markers to color in your design however you’d like — the possibilities here are truly endless.

3. Assemble the Grad Cap

Now it’s time to put everything together! Take the front part of your grad cap and place it over the base. Make sure the shorter edge lines up with the edge of the base, and use the glue stick to join the two pieces together. Trim any excess paper around the edges.

Next, fold the edges of the base up and over the front part, and use the glue stick to secure everything in place. You may have to trim off some excess paper to make sure everything lines up properly. Once you’re done, your grad cap will be ready to show off.

4. Final Touches

To make your grad cap truly stand out, you can add some extra flourishes. Glue a few colorful ribbons to the base to give your cap a festive look. You can also tie on some tassels, or add a few rhinestones for some sparkle. Have fun and make it your own!

Now that you know how to draw a grad cap, there’s no excuse not to show off your style! No matter what your design looks like, your grad cap is sure to be one-of-a-kind. So get creative and make a cap that you can be proud of for years to come.
