A graduation car is the centerpiece of a home, and many homes feature them.
But how to create a graduation home decor that makes a student proud?
A new book by the Harvard School of Design, Graduation Car Decorating Tips, can help you create a personalized graduation car for your kids.
The book, by Jennifer A. Hargreaves, teaches students how to design and decorate their own graduation cars, and it includes step-by-step tutorials on how to make them.
“There are a lot of kids who can’t be on the same page when it comes to their decorating, so we wanted to make it easier for them to do that,” Hargreeves said.
Hargreevals, who is also the author of Graduation Home Decor, said her book was inspired by the students who designed their own car and the parents who brought them home.
“They have the same ideas, but they want their kids to feel proud of them and that they have something special that they’ve created for themselves,” Hagerreaves said.
The book has been translated into Spanish and French.
A second edition is planned for release this year.
Hagerreys book includes advice for parents on how they can use the book as a learning tool.
For example, if you want your children to have fun at school and you know that their favorite colors are blue, green and pink, then you might want to consider adding them to a group of pink, blue, orange and green-themed graduation car sets, she said.
Another book in the series is The Graduation Card: The Essential Guide to Home Decoration, which is also available as a downloadable eBook.
Hagerrees book is also based on the book.
“We were inspired by parents and students who want to decorate for their children and want to make their kids proud of their accomplishments,” Haggerreys said.
Graduation Car Tips: How to Make Your Kids’ Graduation Cars is available for free from Harvard’s online bookstore.
Hargeres book also has tips for decorating graduation cars for your family.
Haggerrees book also includes tips for creating personalized graduation home decorations, like a graduation wall decor, graduation basket wall decor and graduation wall paper.
