5 DIY Locker Decorations

July 31, 2017

Looking to increase your child’s excitement for school? Start planning their locker decorations! Having a stylish, yet organized, locker can not only get your kid motivated to go back, but keep them focused throughout the year. So to help your child feel comfortable and confident in the halls, here are five useful ways they can vamp up their lockers this fall:

1. Light it Up

Brighten up your child’s locker by adding some LED string lights. Not only will it be unique, but it’s also useful because the light will aid in finding text books. Plus, they’re bendable — making them great customizable design.

2. Try Adding Wallpaper

Removable wallpaper is easy to find and easy to use. With many different options, you can be as creative as you like. Wallpaper the back for depth or the inside of the door, or even do both! Your wallpaper options are endless.

3. Add a Message Board

Cute and useful, adding a message board to the locker door will help your child stay more organized. Whether you use a dry erase board or only hang a note pad, your student will be able to leave themselves little reminders in a trendy way.

4. Create a Blackboard

Looking for a place to share messages with your friends? Add chalkboard contact paper. Not only will your child be able to chalk themselves reminders, but their friends can leave little notes or sign their names. It’s easy to install and just as easy to remove — just don’t forget to stock up on chalk.

5. Keep it Organized

Now that you have ideas to create the best locker in the halls, you want to make it functional too. Staying organized and making the most out of the space is key. Add storage bins where you can, or attach a cute pen container to the locker door.
