(fast electronic music) ♪ Yeah, the time of our
lives it was all about fun ♪ ♪ We were the kids and
it was all about fun ♪ ♪ Whoa, oh, a shame we grow older ♪ ♪ Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh. ♪ – Hey guys, it’s Brooklyn and Bailey and today we are going
to be showing you guys 12 different graduation cap designs that you guys can do, they’re
DIY, do them yourself. We’re really excited about it,
so let’s get onto the video. – Okay you guys, so the
first graduation cap we are starting with is a
basic school themed decoration. So you can see here that we
have this sparkly awesomeness. So to explain kind of
the idea behind this cap. To start, we had this
sparkly paper right here that we just fit to
match the size of the cap and then we found some cute
little stickers to put on top. So you can see that we got 2018 which is the year we are graduating. This year finally. And then we have a cute
paw to match the theme of our school. And of course, the colors
all coordinate along with our school as well. And then you can see we put
cute little sticker rhinestones on the outside edges just to make it feel a little bit girlier if
the sparkles weren’t enough for you yet. And that is the finished
look for this graduation cap. (picture whooshes) – Okay for this graduation
cap it looks super fancy and complicated but in fact it is not. It kind of looks like you did
your own little lace doilies on the sides kind of, but
it’s actually just paper and it comes that way which is super nice. As you can see, it just
comes with the little design on the side. So we put that on the top and then here we just have
stick-on gold glitter letters that said dream big. If you have another quote
you want to put on there you could do that too. And then there’s like
a big blank space here that if you wanted to
add pictures or designs or maybe another word or
something at the top, you could. Or you could just leave
it plain, I mean it looks really great that way as well. We also added little pearls on the side. It’s just like a delicate
little touch to the rest of it and then a pearl in the middle to kind of bring it all together and yeah. (light sizzles) (hands tapping) – Bump da da dum. Next graduation cap, so you can
see this one is personalized to moi, but it can be
personalized to you too if you’re going to be
wearing the graduation cap. Of course, you would
personalize first your name. So I put Bailey but if
you’re Sarah or John you can go ahead and put
that in cute white lettering and then the year that you are graduating. And then we outlined the design with a gold, sparkly pen and
then the next step was finding just these cute stick-on flowers which of course I’m super
girly so I did flowers, but you can find whatever
stick-ons that you think you want that matches your personality
and put those on the edge of your graduation cap. Just add a little pizazz here or there. And then again following
the theme, outline it with a gold, sparkly pen just
to give it a cute little pop. And then to finish it
off, you’ve got the button in the middle, so we just
glued it on top right there just to make it look a
little more cutesy and fun. (picture whooshes) – Okay so this graduation cap is something I would definitely wear. It’s kinda more simple, but I like it. And these are the colors of my school. You could do the ribbon and
this little glittery paper that’s on top in whatever
colors your school are, so if that’s black and gold or
maybe it’s green and yellow, I don’t know. Mine is red and black and then on the bottom here I just
have my graduating year. Obviously, you guys might be
different so you can change that up a little bit as well. It’s really pretty, but super easy. You just put on this little
glittery paper on the top. You put a little jewel on the button on the top of your head as
well, and then you just, obviously make a bow out of the ribbon and put your graduating
year and you’re done. So super easy, super quick but
really cute at the same time. – Okay, you guys time out. So, we do have some exciting news. We are going on a Mascara Tour and the cities we are
hitting are Nashville, Dallas, Salt Lake City, and Atlanta. So if we aren’t visiting
where you are going, do not worry, first of all. We so love you guys
even if we’re not going, but also you guys can watch our
socials and we’ll be posting about ways you can get involved and get the mascara early too. So we are going to try
and include everyone, but those are the cities we are visiting. All right, let’s go back to the video. For you superhero lovers
we’ve got a cap for you. So check this one out, it’s Batman. So obviously from your
perspective it looks upside down, but if you were wearing the cap this way where you could see the cape then the Batman would be right side up. So that’s the first point I
wanted to make, so to begin kind of the idea of how
we made this happen. We first started with
getting black felt here, cutting out the shape of a
cape, and super gluing it to the bottom side of the cap. So that’s the first step. Second step is to get yellow
ribbon and black ribbon. Tie a bow and hot glue it on top right where you put the cape so you
can see right here they align. So we glued the cape under here and then glued the bow on top of that. And then the next step because
I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t freehand a
really good looking Batman, so I printed off an
outline from the computer and honestly just Googled Batman and it will pull up the outline. You can just print that off
the computer, outline it on a black piece of paper, and cut it out, and you have your bat. Then just cut out a yellow
oval to go underneath it. And there is your Batman graduation cap. Congratulations, you’re now
the superhero graduating. – Okay for all you Disney fans out there. I’m a Disney fan. You guys should be Disney
fans if you’re not. This is a Minnie Mouse
little graduation cap here, and these ears actually go
in the back on this hat, but you can do it either way. Some girls wear their hats
towards the back of their head, so you know you see it more
from the back, I don’t know. So you could do it either way. But again we’re just using this
glittery paper that we have. Honestly you should just get it ’cause it’s in all the options (laughs). And then these ears
came off of a headband. We just cut ’em off a
headband and glued ’em on, but you could also cut out
little circles from the paper and just fold the bottom and
glue ’em on so they stand up. Whatever is easier for y’all. And then again we just made
a little bow and glued it right in the front with this
polka dot ribbon right here. You could do red ribbon,
you could do glittery ribbon if you want to change it
up a little bit, but yeah, overall you just look like Minnie Mouse with your graduation cap on. (picture whooshes) – Since you are graduating
you’re going to probably want to sport the college you’re going to so this time we are going to show you guys how to do a college
sporting graduation cap. So no, to clarify, I’m not announcing where I’m going secretly
by showing you a UT cap. That is not in any way, shape,
or form a secret meaning. I just wanted to come up
with a college, you know, and this is the first one
that popped into my head. I printed off outlines and traced them. So I got this cute little
sparkly gold like paper. It doesn’t really feel like paper, it mostly feels like just
sparkles really glued together. So it’s like this metallic
sheet and we just cut out the shape of the long-horn
and the UT, traced it on this, cut it out, and then put it on the cap. And then we got these silver sparkles. There like small versions of
these and then we outlined the design of the longhorn
and the UT on top of that. Very basic, it’s really, really easy. Not hard at all. You could do this for any school. You could print off a
bear, a lion, I don’t know what other mascots there are,
millions of different things, eagles, all can be fit
on this wonderful cap in sparkle metallic paper
and you can just stick it on and there you go. (picture whooshes) – Okay I don’t know about
y’all but I’m a huge fan of Wonder Woman. She’s a strong, independent superhero and I love her and the movie was amazing. So this is a super fun graduation hat that is about Wonder Woman. So you just cut out a
red triangle of paper, a blue triangle of paper,
white stars from paper, and then there’s this little
gold Wonder Woman thing, so we just use this cut-out,
put it on the gold paper, cut it out, and then
drew over it the same way that the W is. Glue it all together and you’re
Wonder Woman for graduation. (picture whooshes) – Okey dokey, so if you
are a girly-girl like me or a spring girl who loves flowers, this is a graduation cap for you. It is literally the most basic and easy possible
graduation cap you could do. Go to Hobby Lobby or any craft store. They will have a row of just fake flowers. You go in there and you
buy the color flowers and the shape flowers you
want, cut the stems off, and you glue them onto
your cap just like this. That is it, ladies and gents, that is it. You have a flower crown graduation cap. (picture whooshes) – So this hat kinda reminds
me of henna, which I love. The designs are always super
intricate and beautiful. So the top of the hat looks like this. You kinda have to either
freehand it or get a stencil, you can trace, there’s like
transfer paper and a bunch of other options you can do as well. On this cap we just use Sharpies. If you have pens or other
colors you want to use, you can do that as well. And then to add a little
bling to it, we put gems just around it and all over
the design to make it stand out a little bit more. On the tassel itself
for the graduation hat, we did a little feather
dipped in gold glitter paint. But it’s just a fun, intricate design. (picture whooshing) – If you are looking for
a simple school spirit like graduation cap, then
this is the cap for you. Literally, again, so easy. Basically just find
sparkly paper in the color of your school, and then
we found some black lace to go on top because our school
does have the color black, but I’m sure if you had
white or silver or gold you could probably find
that somewhere too. We went ahead and laid the
black lace over the red and then just glued it
underneath the cap right here. So it looks super cute and decorated. It looks like you spent
a lot of time on it, but truly it only took
you like five minutes. And then just to add a little pizazz, we added the cute little button. This is really, really
easy so there you go. – So you all know that I love girl power and we love showing you guys that girls can be powerful and empowered. And so this graduation
cap, it just embodies that whole thing, is
the female gender sign. So we have this red sparkly
paper cut out and then we put it on top of this foam. It’s like this thick little foam pad, and it just makes it stand up and pop off the hat a little bit. And then we put a black
and white striped paper on the bottom. Super, super easy to do,
but it’s also very cute and it shows what you stand for, so women empowerment all the way. Graduation, here we go. (picture whooshing) – Thank you guys so much for watching. I know it’s crazy. Graduation is finally here.
