Make classmates jealous with these cool DIY projects for your locker.
DIY Wooden Frames
Forget the plastic variety. Balsa wood sheets are affordable, easy to find at the craft store, and, with a decorative hole punch (also available at craft stores), can be made to look like expensive frames. Add adhesive magnets to the back and—voila!—a picture frame as pretty as the photo inside of it.

DIY Glittered Clothespins
For someone who likes a little glitz and glamour, these clothespins couldn’t be any easier to make—all you need is a little glue, a lot of glitter, and small adhesive magnets. Use the pins to display a class schedule or other important papers on the inside of the locker.

DIY Magnetic Pen Holder
School Locker Chalkboard Initial
Special paint transforms a paper mache—or wooden—initial into a functional chalkboard, while ribbon lets the whole thing double as a bulletin board (use the glittered clothespins above to affix documents or photos to the ribbon!).
