The graduation season has arrived, and now is the moment to showcase your creative side as you embark on your future. When it comes to graduation clothing, your graduation cap is only one of many items that you may personalize. While you cannot design your gown, many schools allow you to customize your grad cap. If you are not permitted to adorn it during the ceremony, you may always decorate it to hang in your room after the ceremony.
Here are simple steps to personalize your graduation cap.
Choose a Design
When looking to customize your caps or tassels for graduation, select a design that reflects your individuality. For some, this may be an inspirational quotation, while for others, it may be something comical to help them enjoy the completion of their degree. The goal is to begin with a broad concept and progressively add to it, resulting in a design that is unique and personal to you. Writing a unique phrase on your graduation cap to express your gratitude to your parents is one of the most popular ways to customize it.
Gather your crafting supplies.
You will need some craft items to finish your project of customizing your graduation caps and tassels to your design. These might contain images, glitter, foam letters and shapes, or any other material that can enhance your design, as well as adhesive, sticky tape, or another type of glue. Using these materials allows you to get a beautiful result while showcasing your ingenuity.
Make a Design Plan
Before you put anything on your cap, you need to measure the surface area and organize your design. This will keep you from making mistakes when you recreate the design on your cap. You'll know if you have enough area for everything you want to add if you measure everything and plan your design ahead of time.
Begin using the materials
Once you've created your design and gathered all of the appropriate craft supplies, you can start attaching the items to your graduation cap. Remove the tassel from your graduate cap before applying the items. Take your time and allow each piece to dry completely before adding anything new. Waiting between additions reduces the chance of damage to previously finished work. Remember to connect the tassel to your finished grad cap. The tassel is an essential feature of graduation attire. After the graduation ceremony, you may take it off your cap and frame it.
