DIY Graduation Memory Tree


It’s graduation season! You know what that means? A lot of rearview mirrors are about to be adorned with 2016 tassels …and graduation parties! Along with awesome finger foods, a successful graduation party  should also focus on the grad. What better way to focus on your favorite graduate than to have all the party guests share some of their favorite memories with them? This graduation party memories tree is great for allowing guests to share some of their favorite fun (as well as embarrassing) memories involving the grad. Also, it makes a great centerpiece. And bonus: it’s incredibly easy to make!

Supplies needed: a twiggy branch (or small bundle of branches, like I did), a large mason jar, cute tags, cute ribbon, paper for a label, and a pen I decided on a classic black, white, and gold theme for my graduation party decor. I found my branches in the yard and spray painted them white (but they would look awesome without paint too). While they were drying, I began working on the jar. I wrapped it in some cute black and white striped ribbon (I found it at a local crafts store). Then I made a label with a small rectangle of gold foil paper with the smaller rectangle of white card stock on top. I labeled it “memories” to make it a little more obvious what exactly this bunch of branches on the table was for:) I love the look of hanging gift tags, so these were perfect! Plus, after the festivities are over, you could easily tie all the tags full of memories together as a little keepsake book. pro tip: place your memories tree next to a plate of goodies. That way, more party guests are sure to see it and contribute some great memories (because, cookies!).
