Graduation Party wreath and garland

It's that time of year- school is almost out!  There are lots of 
parties and celebrations coming up!  

I'm helping to throw a graduation party next week so I made a few things to decorate.  

I made a wreath and garland in the school colors, which are black and gold.

For the wreath I dug some holiday gold tinsel garland (amazon link for you if you aren't a supply hoarder like me) and a wreath form out of my stash. 

 I very simply wrapped the garland around the wreath.

Next I cut some black triangles from cardstock.  
Then I wrote out 2014 with glue and sprinkled it with gold glitter.

I clipped the triangles to black bakers twine with mini clothespins.

I hung the wreath with a length of black tulle, tied in a bow.

For the garland I gathered some gold and black tulle and ribbons, and tied small pieces onto jute twine.  

I used lots of tulle, but also used some gold and black ribbon and ric rack.  

My blogging friends all have some great party ideas.  Please stop by their blogs for ideas for your next party!
