Ways to Decorate a School Locker

If your school allows you the freedom to decorate your locker, take advantage of the opportunity to showcase your personal taste and personality. Choose from the practical to the frivolous when decorating your school locker. The only rule you need to follow is to use items that reflect your individual style.

Simple but Convenient

Decorate a magnetic dry erase board with sea glass, phrase buttons and pictures. A calendar is always handy and is decorative as well as functional. Use stickers and graffiti to mark important dates. Place a pencil box that you've decoupaged with your favourite beauty tips on your top shelf to hold make-up and grooming items. Don't forget to hang a mirror on the inside of your locker door to make sure that snack you enjoyed between classes isn't caught in your front teeth. Consider hot gluing animal print faux fur around your mirror for a zanier appearance.

Memory Boards

Memory boards are constructed easily by stapling batting onto an 8x10-inch piece of wood. Cover the batting in your favourite material. Use denim, stripes, quirky patterns or even taffeta and lace for a dainty look. Criss-cross ribbon, leather or neon shoe strings over the board, and staple them to the back. After you have hammered buttons into the board where the strips of ribbon intersect, slide pictures of your friends, ticket stubs and silly notes under the ribbons.

Wall Coverings

If you don't mind the work it requires to remove it at the end of the school year, consider lining your locker in prepasted wallpaper. Or if wallpaper is too boring for you, your locker is sure to garner a lot of attention when you adhere artificial flowers to the entire backside. Use double-sided tape to hang daisies, roses or carnations in your school colours. Glue dots help to add plenty of sparkle when you fashion a border of gem-coloured stones around the edges.

Personal Style

Showcase your academic accomplishments and highlight special events when you decorate your locker. Frame and hang awards and certificates inside your locker door. Hang party invitations and announcements on the walls. Dry corsages worn at dances, and dangle them from the coat hooks.
