How to Draw a Graduation Cap

Artist: Dawn / May 19, 2014

Step 1.

Let's get started. Draw a square for the top portion of the cap.

Step 2.

You will now start drawing the scroll with the end part of the paper, then draw a swirl.

Step 3.

Up next, finish drawing the roll of the scroll by making a tube, then proceed to step four.

Step 4.

Fill in the inside of the scroll with a paper end which is curled. Then draw in the ribbon that is tied around the scroll in the center. I know that the flap of the scroll is not included with the ribbon, but I was going for a playful concept.

Step 5.

Add the tassel on the top part of the graduation cap, then draw in the tassel ends.

Step 6.

For the last step all you have to do is draw the rest of the cap which is the part that sits on the students head. Erase the mistakes if you made any.

Step 7.

That's it, you are all done. Now you can add some festive color to your cap and scroll or diploma.
