It’s graduation party season!  Crafty moms everywhere are getting ready to decorate lawns, garages, and halls in school colors as friends and family dig out their elastic-waist shorts  in anticipation of massive amounts of potato salad.  If you’ve got grad party decorations on your to-do list, check out this idea by Meg at Mega Crafty.  She turned classic cone-shaped birthday hats into graduation caps!  They make a fun table decoration, and after the party you can send them home as party favors!  (I’m totally loving Meg’s pictures of her dog modeling the finished cap!)  [how to turn a birthday party hat into a graduation cap]
