Locker decorations are a great way to enhance and beautify the plain and dull lockers in school. There are various ideas which can be employed and it all depends on your preferences and liking. Some popular ideas include the celebrity theme and locker decorative accessories.
Personal locker decorations are a chance to express your style and individuality from every other person that has the same type of locker. Doing your own decorations can also save you money. Even those with a minimal creative streak can pull off easy and wonderful decorations.
The best time for decorating your school locker would be just before the school year as you are assigned a locker number and combination. For some, this may be the best time to get into the locker, clean it out and choose a theme or what should be displayed for decorating purposes. The first day of school is typically a half of a day of school or a day that is used for instructional purposes only, so this is a great time to decorate a school locker. Bring all of the supplies and decorating items to school that day. Allowing up to 30 minutes preparing a decorated locker, but decorating in spurts throughout the school day, such as in between classes, is also a time efficient way to squeeze in some decorating time.
Celebrity themes are one of the most popular locker decorating themes among teenagers. Browsing through popular teen magazines such as Bop, Teen Beat and Tiger Beat to get ideas for celebrity designs is a great idea because they carry posters and photographed pages of popular celebrity musicians, bands and movie stars. These magazines are great resources for girls who like a certain teen idol. For the guys, posters of teen girls are always popular as are magazine pages of exotic cars and even video game heroes. Magnetic items that can hold up school pictures of classmates as well as notes and memos are also great features for the interior of lockers. Pencil holders and storage organizers that keep lunches from crushing and all the books straight are great tools for the organized student.
In addition to store-bought items like posters, magnets and photo frames, decorate the locker with homemade craft items. Create picture frames from adhesive papers and wallpaper scraps. Use brightly coloured contact papers to cut out shapes and words. Be sure to choose adhesive papers that can be removed cleanly. Avoid stickers which may damage locker surfaces.
The locker accessories you buy can be plain or colourful, depending on your preference. You can add additional detail to make them unique. Do this by covering the shelves with contact paper or fun fabric, stickers, ribbons and other trimmings. Paint the supplies (even the lock box) to accentuate your locker’s details. You can pin postcards, pictures, sayings and more to your corkboard squares, too.
