Thank you Ring Pop for sponsoring this post. I have a sweet graduation craft to share with you today! Read below for how to make a Ring Pop Class Ring, plus a bonus graduation DIY centerpiece to celebrate the end of the school year with your children.
*The printable is updated for 2022! Download is available at the bottom of this page.
This school year has been a tough one for kids and is definitely one for the record books. Making class rings with Ring Pop lollipops is such a fun and simple way to celebrate students you know and recognize a job well done.
One of the positives of this past year was the extra family time we have had. Crafting and doing DIY projects together is something my tween and I really enjoy, so this graduation craft was a big hit.
Graduation Craft Ideas
Using art and crafts as a creative outlet has really helped us during some stressful times, but this Ring Pop Class Rings DIY project is all about celebration.
This is a fun project to do at home with your kids. Plus, you can easily make enough class rings to share using the Ring Pop 20 Count Bag and the free printable I’ve provided a little further down the page. The Ring Pop 20 count bag includes a selection of five flavors.
With so many colors and flavors, you can give every kid their favorite flavor Ring Pop. My girl LOVES the Ring Pop Watermelon and Twisted Blue Raspberry Watermelon flavors the most. Ring Pop is one of her favorite sweet treats.
Even if you’re just having a small graduation or end of the school year celebration at home, Ring Pop makes every party sweeter.
In addition to the class ring printable, I’m going to show you how to make a super simple graduation cap centerpiece that will hold all of your class rings. These graduation crafts use supplies that are easily accessible and you probably already have most of it at home.
How to Make Ring Pop Class Rings
Ring Pop 20 Count Party Pack
Printer with color ink
Standard copy paper
Scissors or a 1 3/4 hole punch
Tape or glue
Download and print the class ring labels here. There ae 12 labels per sheet.
Using scissors or a 1 3/4 hole punch, cut around each class ring label. We recently moved and half of my craft supplies are still boxed up in the garage, so my daughter and I cut ours out using scissors.
Use a piece of tape or a small amount of craft glue to adhere each label to the individual Ring Pop outer package. We used glue dots for ours and it turned out perfect. There was no drying time and they stayed in place.
How to Make a DIY Graduation Centerpiece
This centerpiece that doubles as a container to hole the Ring Pop graduation rings was a last minute addition to our end of the school year celebration. I think this simple graduation craft project added a unique and personal touch to the graduation party supplies I ordered online.
Glass container with a circular opening at the top.
Scrapbooking paper or a foam sheet in black, blue or green
Craft glue and/or tape
Cut a 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide band to fit around the mouth of the container. Glue or tape the ends together to keep them in place.
Cut a square from a piece of craft paper, cardstock or foam sheet. This will serve as the top of the graduation cap and the size you need will vary, depending on the size of your container. Run a small bead of glue around top of the band and carefully place the paper square on top. You can optionally use tape or glue dots to attach the top of the hat to the band.
Cut a small circle from the same paper. As pictured, glue it top and center onto the graduation cap. If you have a tassel that matches your paper, foam or cardstock it would make a nice addition.
It is hard to believe T is in middle school now. I’m so glad she still enjoys doing art and craft projects with me.
Seriously, this was a tough school year for us and I know so many of you can relate. It was nice doing a special graduation craft to celebrate the end of the school year and a job well done. We needed this!
I hope these end of school year crafts will provide some fun for your family and bring a smile to the grads you know. Who doesn’t love a yummy Ring Pop?!
