Graduation Leis!

It's that time of year - graduation! We are making candy leis like crazy and wanted to share some easy, fun ideas!



This one is fairly time consuming, but the end result is so fun! We took 3 frooties at a time and tied them together, and then tied them to the main string, alternating colors. We chose good ole Lehi purple, but this would also be cute in a rainbow of colors, chocolate brown, or of course, the school's colors!

Careful - this one was hard on my finger - lots of knot tying! 


This is a new favorite this year - a simple chunky patterned ribbon with a candy Pop Rocks attached, with a bright tag saying "YOU ROCK - Congratulations!"


This is a refreshing new look that we are loving, and so are the customers!


Who doesn't love rainbows and bubblegum?! This would be perfect for your preschooler or kindergartener's graduation, and we made it a little shorter just for the little ones. We've added a little bow on the side to add some flair!


And finally, our classic two-toned bubble gum lei! Perfect for any age, any school (since the bubble gum comes in a ton of colors), and cute for a guy or girl graduate!


We have tons of bubble gum & frooties in all colors as well as Pop Rocks and a good selection of cute ribbon - stop by the store to get your leis, or order other fun gifts HERE for your graduate!  

Also don't miss our FREE PRINTABLES to add to your graduation gifts!

Be sure and watch us tomorrow on Studio 5 at 1pm - we will be showing these cute leis and giving some good tips!

Congratulations Graduates!

We found the perfect money lei
for graduation and thought
we'd share how to make it:

Items needed:  2 spools of black ribbon (12 feet each),
$100 (in dollar bills), and black paper.

 

Step 1:  Start folding each dollar bill like a fan, as shown below.

 

Step 2:  Cut the black paper the same size as a dollar bill.
You will need 100 pieces cut.
Fold them the same as each dollar bill.

 

Step 3:  You will need 2 dollar fans to make 1 circle.
The same goes for the paper fans.

 

Step 4:  Take each spool of ribbon and unravel them.  Place one end of each spool together and form a loop.
You will then sew the loop in place.  End result:  a loop with 2 long strands of ribbon coming down.

 

Step 5:  Now that you have a loop with 2 ends, you can get started tying on the money and paper fans.
Keep in mind that there are 2 ends of ribbon, but you will use them to tie, so in the end, there will only be 1 strand.

 

Step 6:  Alternate tying the paper and money
using both strands of ribbon,
and soon you will have the completed lei!


If you have any questions, we'd love to help!  Just contact us at our store location for more information.

Wishing all the graduates out there the best!
