I don’t know that much about quilting but this is an absolute awesome idea. You could even incorporate clothing pieces from your child’s outgrown clothes throughout the years.

Balloon Garland

Blow up balloons and with a needle and thick thread thread them together to make a balloon garland. This is very cheap and a great way to add a lot of color to a party. You can use thread but would be more secure if you used embroidery thread. Mix and match colors for your theme to go with the colors of a school for graduation or just go random for a birthday party. This can be something done at the last minute as well as you can get everything you need and have it ready to go.

Graduation Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup Hat

Use a gold or silver paint pen and trace  a square on top of each square as seen in the picture. Take a six inch length of ribbon (this can be color co-ordinated to work with the schools color just as the black poster board can be changed) and glue it to the top of the black poster board. Hot glue the black square with the square you made on it facing up to the small end of a mini Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup. Top with a small black sequin or bead to cover the glued ends of the ribbon to make a finished look. These would make great party favors or would make a great gift with several placed with tissue paper in a gift box.

Graduation Caps Favor Suckers

Melt chocolate and attach Reece’s Cup with a square of chocolate. Add a dollop of chocolate on top and add a string licorice and mini M&M to the top. Color co-ordinate if you can to school colors or do in a large variation of colors. These would be great for a party as favors or to have several nestled into tissue paper/wax paper inside a gift box to give to your special grad.
