Give your grad a handmade graduation lei! Here’s how to string one together…

A graduation lei is easier to make than you think.

A lei in any form is a fun way to celebrate your graduate’s accomplishments. Whether you use flowers, cash, or candy, they will feel extra special on their big day. String together a flower lei yourself with a few tips.

Carly Goodrich shares how to string together carnations. Just a few simple supplies will turn a pile of flowers into a decorative lei. And if that’s not your grad’s style, gather up a bunch of peonies and butcher paper for a graduation bouquet.
