I’m sharing ideas on how to make your own locker accessories. I have twin 14 year old boys who are in 9th grade. Now much to my disappointment, my boys don’t really care about locker accessories. My granddaughters sure do though and I thought it would be fun to make some things for their lockers. I’ll try and persuade my boys to show a little interest in beautifying their lockers. Not sure it will work though.
The first thing I did was take a trip to the dollar store and I found a few things I could alter and make fun. I found a dry erase board and some magnetic pencil holders. They are pretty boring. I found some washi tape at JoAnn’s and knew I could use it to add some life to the message boards.
She loves her bling!
My boys are required to have a zip drive and headphones at school. Last year they both lost theirs. I needed to come up with a solution. I bought some Altoids just for the tins. I covered the top with a piece of vinyl, added the washi tape and glued magnets to the back. The Altoid tin conveniently holds the zip drive and the headphones. With the magnets they can place it on the locker door and hopefully always know where they are.
