Preparing decorations for the graduation party.

I am preparing for a graduation party, that will take place on July 8th.  I have started to make the decorations for the graduation party, and wanted to share the ideas and decorations I am making.  I know I am a little late on sharing graduation party decoration ideas, but my son has been gone for the last 3 weeks at our church camp(Camp Wakonda).  He is working as a lifeguard/counsler, and this requires him to stay at camp.  So that is why the party in July.  Here is a link for those who might want to know more about our church camp.

My first project was to make a cool card box holder, so I came up with the idea to use an old mail box and decorate it.  Here is the finished project, but I also want to share the steps involved.

Here is a list of the supplies used.

Old mail box

Black and Red spray paint

Red and White scrapbook paper


Mod Podge

Clear Acrylic sealer

I purchased the mail box from a local salvage yard for $5.  I had all the other supplies on hand.  Here is a before picture of the mail box.

I scraped and cleaned the mailbox.  I than used my Cricut Expression machine to cut the letters.  I used” printing 101″ cartridge for the McKinley and Bulldog lettering and used “George and the Basics” cartridge for Mack and 2012 lettering.

I adhered all the letters together than adhered to the mailbox.  I than used the Mod Podge to seal the lettering to the mailbox.

After all the Mod Podge was dry I used a clear acrylic spray paint to put a final seal on the entire project.  I decided not to Mod Podge the front of the mail box with my son’s name, that way I can remove his name and use the mailbox card holder again for the last graduation party in 3 years!

I loved how it turned out, what do you think?  I will be posting the other projects as I complete them, so follow me so you can see the other great ideas.
