DIY Grad Party Decor Supplies

Start by creating 2 inch circles in your design program (I use Silhouette Studio). Import the graphics and add one image to each circle. Print and then cut the circles out.

Use a sticker maker to place adhesive on half the circles. Place the stickered circle image size down on the table, add a toothpick to the back, and sandwich the non-sticky circle image on the other side, being careful to line up the sides.

Now you have beautiful DIY cupcake toppers!

Use the disassembled cut files to make the decorated balloons. Cut the different elements out from the different colors, then use transfer tape to put the image together.

Use the transfer tape to place the vinyl graphics onto a mylar balloon. You can personalize these with the school colors. If you are inflating balloons, it’s easier to add the vinyl to the uninflated balloon first, but you can still add it to purchased inflated balloons, like I did with this one.

  5. Thank you for sharing the mylar balloon application.
    First time visiting your site and can’t wait to explore more.

  6. Wow! The balloon idea is unbelievable!! We can do this for any occasion. So exciting. I love the way you made the cupcake toppers, I never thought to try it like this. I always made the process way more complicated 🙂 The final set up with the balloon and the cupcakes, looks incredible! Thank you very much for sharing.

  7. After seeing how easy it is to make I will be decorating all of our future Mylar balloons. Love this and thank you!!
