I'm a big believer in creating DIY party decor that is fast, easy=, and inexpensive. And why do I believe that? Because if it's all three of those things, you're more apt to do it!

This is why I'm happy to share this 2016 tissue paper graduation party decor craft. It's simple to make, fast, and won't cost an arm and a leg, but the best part is that it is a show-stopper. Plus, you can customize the colors any way you like! We created this one in gold and black because those are the on-trend graduation party colors right now.

Materials: Start by tracing your numbers on the foam board. I didn't use a template because I knew they'd ultimately be covered by tissue paper!:­)

Using the Xacto knife, carefully cut out the numbers from the foam board.

Hot glue the dowel to the back of the numbers.

Cut a small piece of floral foam and stick the bottom of the dowels into the foam. This will help your numbers stand up straight! Place the dowel into the mason jars. Fill jars with confetti to cover up the green floral foam.
