DIY DD Grad Cap



  • Graduation cap
  • Hot glue gun
  • White fabric paint
  • Small paintbrush
  • Exacto knife
  • Double-sided tape
  • Small Dunkin' Donuts coffee cup
  • Scissors

1. Print and cut out the stencil using an exacto knife. 
2. Position and attach the stencil to your cap using double sided tape. 


3. Using fabric paint in the color of your choice, paint the letters on. Don't use too much paint, or you will not have a crisp line on the letters.
4. Allow the paint to dry completely and carefully remove the stencil from the cap. 


5. With a pair of scissors, cut your Dunkin' cup in half. 
6. Put hot glue around the outer edges of the cup and press the cup down firmly onto the cap. 


7. Add any other fun embellishments that you want to personalize your graduation cap!
