4 years. 48 months. 1460 days. All that hard work has finally paid off. Here’s to the next 4 years being as memorable and as life-changing as the last.
8.Powered By Starbucks
One of my favorite funny graduation cap ideas has to be this ‘Powered By Starbucks’ design. Seriously though, find me a graduate that has pulled through 4 years of college without a trip (or 10000) to Starbucks!! I’ll wait.

One of the prettiest graduation cap decorations has to be this one. If you’re graduating this year as an optician, this easy graduation cap design is perfect for you (why not even frame it later and pop it up at your place of work?).
13.My Turn to Become a Teacher
One child, one teacher, one pen, one book can change the world…and you’re about to become a part of that change. You’re going to inspire your students so much just like your teachers inspired you. And that’s something your students will never forget.
14.Faith It Until you Make it
Always have faith and it’ll carry you through whatever hardships you’re facing. Have faith in yourself, your capabilities and most of all have faith that the future has some big things in store for you. So go chase your dreams and enjoy every second of them.
15.I’m Finding My Way
If you’re graduating with no immediate plans for what to do next, that’s absolutely ok.
Take your time, think about it properly and you’ll see the right opportunities come to you when the time is right and you’re ready for them. Meanwhile, just enjoy every minute of your big day. You’ll find your way soon enough.
16.Now Hotter by One Degree

17.I Wanted To Give Up But I Remembered Who Was Watching
Get this graduation cap
All those times when exam anxiety got the best of you, or the work got far too overwhelming and you just wanted to take the easy route and give up entirely…but you didn’t.
You probably realized that there are too many people counting on you to fail and would be happy if you didn’t succeed (yes these people unfortunately still do exist in the world!) and you wanted to prove them wrong.
Or perhaps you remembered your parents, who pushed you from your childhood days to work, work, and work but this time no one was there to push you while you studied on campus. So maybe you realized you owe it to them to keep that momentum going.
Or maybe your faith in God made you stronger and kept you going. Whatever it is, you pulled through and came out the other side, as a graduate!
18.Finally Graduation Cap
All those long sleepless nights staying up late revising for exams and cramming in any last-minute information your brain could absorb has finally paid off.
FINALLY, you’ve passed, and it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor!
19.The Tassel Was Worth The Hassle
Trust me when I say once your graduation cap is on your head and you switch your tassel from one side to the other, you’re going to be feeling SO good and on top of the world.
You’ll literally forget about all those long nights spent studying for finals and the stress that came with it. It was all worth it in the end, wasn’t it?
20.Don’t Touch My Crown
Come graduation day and you will officially be the queen of your own kingdom; so don’t let anyone touch the ‘crown’ on your head (the one with the GORGEOUS graduation cap design on it!).
Coronation day (I mean, graduation day!), here we come!
21.I Love Me To The Moon And Back
Get this graduation cap
And so you should. YOU made this happen so don’t you forget it. Love yourself for it and be proud of yourself too.
Don’t forget to indulge in a night of self-care and lots of pampering before graduation day. Try to make it a weekly habit too (#selfcaresundays) because once you start working it’s really easy to fall behind on self-care, so try not to fall into that trap.
22.A Grand Adventure is About to Begin
One of my favorite easy graduation cap ideas has to be this one. The butterflies (that were once caterpillars) break free and start their new lives and adventures. Be like a butterfly on graduation day. Beautiful, redefined, and ready to take on the world!
23.It’s Time For A New Chapter
It sure is! Whether you’re looking for high school graduation cap ideas or college graduation cap ideas this design is perfect for both. It’s the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter and guess what…it’s going to be amazing!

“Aim for the moon and if you miss you may hit a star”.
That is exactly what you have done throughout college to now get to where you are today, the star of the show and of your life! Be proud of yourself and continue to live by this saying in everything that you do going forward.
25.Finally, What’s Next?
YAY! you and your very own friends have made it to graduation day! So what goals will you be setting for yourselves next? Starting your very own business? Scored the job of your dreams? Getting married? Starting a family?
Whatever life goals are next on the cards for you, get excited! Don’t forget to stop over at your designated ‘Central Perk’ coffee shop with your friends for one last coffee and session of reminiscing before you all head your separate ways.
26.Thank You, Next
As Ariana Grande rightfully said “thank you, next” to all of her past loves for the lessons they taught her, the same goes for you and the lessons college and college life taught you!
Now it’s time to move on to the next chapter and learn a few more lessons on the way.
27.Work Hard in Silence, Let Success Make The Noise
Get this graduation cap
I really love this one and it’s always been a personal motto of mine. There are far too many people in the world that are constantly singing their own praises and letting the entire world know about every single one of their achievements, which I guess is fine but I’m not about that life.
I’d much rather work hard in silence, celebrate my own achievements (perhaps just with my very close circle of loved ones if it was a big one!) and then let my success speak for itself. Give this a try for yourself. Remember, you don’t need praise or validation from anyone, be your own cheerleader!
28.The Best Is Yet To Come
Get this graduation cap
As the saying goes, “you ain’t seen nothing yet”.
So just you wait and see what’s right around the corner for you. The best is always yet to come.
29.With Love and Pride, Today and Always
This touching design is a wonderful gift idea from parents to their children that are graduating. The words identify how every parent feels on their child’s graduation day and that is complete and utter love and pride in all of their achievements.
From the moment you were born, to when you reached all of your milestones (crawling, first steps, first words) and now seeing you graduate and ready to take your first steps into your chosen career.
I hope you loved this post about easy graduation cap ideas as well as all of the designs I’ve created for you. I wish you well on your big day and all of the success for the future too. Congratulations again!
