Easy Party Centerpieces


We recently celebrated my daughter's high school graduation.  She's off to college at the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig Sooie!).  We had a party with a couple of her friends who will be attending different colleges.  We wanted a way to celebrate all three graduates and made these fun and easy centerpieces highlighting their colleges.  These can work well for any kind of event - family reunion, casual wedding, birthday party.  You just need a few items and a little creativity.

We used some mason jars we found at Walmart, some crinkle cut colored paper shreds in the college colors, a little grosgrain ribbon for a bow and wood skewers.

You can use photographs or we found some images on the internet that we printed to attach to the skewers.  We just cut a solid piece of construction paper a little larger than the image and glued it to the back of the image with the end of a wooden skewer between the papers.  Stuff the crinkle paper into the jar, tie a ribbon around the top and insert the skewers.  Done!

You can make this fancier with glitter inside the jar or little battery operated lights inside for a glowing effect.  If you don't have pictures or printed images, you can use stickers mounted on the construction paper backing.  These were a hit with our guests and so easy to make.

Party on!
