Graduation Memory Board

How to make a Graduation Memory Board
Love this quote...
A simple way to showcase the graduate through the years!

Graduation Memory Board Decoration/Gift

 You can make a memory board in a couple of different ways.
Grad Party Memory Wall Decoration Idea
1. Create it On the Spot. The first way would be to get a roll of white paper and put it on one wall of the party space. Put out markers, paints, and crayons and let the guests leave messages or pictures. In effect, it becomes living art!
2. Request the Material. A second approach is to ask all your guests to send you pictures or stories about the graduate. You'll use these to assemble a memory wall that people can review at their leisure. Definitely one of my favorite easy do-it-yourself graduation decorations, and one which will be guaranteed to bring tears to the eyes of your graduate.

Other Graduation Ideas to showcase the Grad!


  • Instead of making a standard collage, put the photographs on a time line, which enables you to put the photos into a context. Jot down details of different events or days on the time line, such as the first day of kindergarten or the junior prom. Important events that you don't have captured in photographs can still be added to the time line with this method.

Shadow Box Memory Board

  • Don't limit yourself to items that lie perfectly flat. If you use a shadowbox instead of the more traditional picture frame or poster board, you can include items such as drumsticks, guitar picks, marching shoes, Boy Scout or Girl Scout badges, bats or rackets, depending on the graduate's interests.

Future Memories Board

  • Instead of focusing on memories of the past to commemorate a graduation, take a nontraditional approach and make a board to celebrate the memories waiting down the road. For example, for high school graduates, include logos, mascots or mock college diplomas from the schools they will attend. For college graduates, include things that correspond to their chosen career paths and goals. The photos don't have to be only of the graduate. Include pictures from magazines or trade magazines as well as illustrations.
