How to draw a graduation cap with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Simple drawing for kids and beginners.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
In the first step of our graduation hat tutorial, you’ll find it much easier if you have a ruler on hand. Once you have your ruler ready, you can use it to draw a slanted square.
It will be at a slight angle to show that it is slightly tilted. Then draw a line close to the circumference on the bottom two lines, leaving a small space in the right corner.
Then draw a circle in the center of the square for the button on top of it.
Next, draw the underside of the graduation cap
You have the flat top of the hat, so now you can draw the bottom side, which will be the part that obscures your head.
Use some straight lines down from the bottom of the flat top for the side of this section, then use a curved line underneath to join the two vertical lines.
That’s all you have to do for this step, and once you’ve added this, you’re ready to move on to step 3!
Start drawing the fringes of the hat
Graduation caps will generally have a tassel dangling from the top of the hat. In step 3 of this graduation cap tutorial, we’ll start with this aspect.
First, we will draw the rope to which the tassel will be attached. To draw this rope, draw a curved line from the knot on the top of the hat pulled to the side so that it hangs off the edge.
Then draw another line running close to it to end the sequence.
After completing that sequence, we will draw a circle at the end of the sequence, as this is what the tassel will attach to later.
Now draw the rest of the tassels for the hat
Now that you have the strings for your tassels, we can start painting your own tassels for this graduation cap step.
The tassel will attach to the circle you drew at the end of the rope dangling from its side. To get started, draw three thin shapes over the circle to start the tassel.
Then we can outline the flower part of the tassel. You can draw this with two curved lines that connect with a jagged flat line at the end.
Be sure to carefully refer to the reference image as you draw so you can see what we mean!
Once this tour is complete, we just have a few details to add in the next step and then you’re done!
Complete the final details of your graduation cap drawing
This step of our graduation cap tutorial will include adding the final details to get you ready for the final step.
Once we’ve added these details, we’ll also look at a few of your own that you can add!
First, let’s start by completing the tassel. We’re going to add some sugar detail to the tassel to make it look like it’s made up of many individual strands.
That should end our insights, but you should make sure to add any of your own that you might like!
These might include drawing someone wearing a graduation cap. It could even be a self-portrait! Sometimes people will draw pictures or messages on the grout board, so maybe you can do that to personalize the hat.
These are just a few ideas you can try, but what else could you think of to complete this graduation hat drawing?
