Here in Hawaii Graduation is a very big deal. They have a 5th grade, 8th grade, high school and even preschool graduation. There a tons of leis given, balloons, banners, you name it, it is there.
Anyway... My son graduated this year and I wanted to show one of the many lei that I made for him.
It is a money lei. I made it with quarters. $25 dollars worth of quarters. I don't have step by step pictures but it is very easy to make.
Here is a awesome tutorial that I used to make my coin money lei.
