FAB UP YOUR LIFE
Glam up your locker
#1 A dry-erase board
Pick up a small dry-erase board at an office supply store. Go to town decorating it with preppy ribbon and stickers. For some boredom-busting before homeroom, use permanent marker to add on a blank tic-tac-toe box, hangman’s noose or dots grid.
Keep things organized with bright-colored locker shelves. We think arranging your books, notebooks and folders by period works the best and will have ya off to class in a jiff, but tidy up however you like.
#3 Got a spare?
Grab a cute, inexpensive acrylic or plastic glass. Decorate it with puff paint and permanent markers, then glue a magnet to one side, right in the middle. Pop it up on your locker door and fill it with extra pens, pencils and other school supplies just in case you run out on your way to class.
#4 Quick-fix bag
Scout out a local crafts store for a plain, zippered bag. It can be cloth or plastic, and should be the size of a makeup bag for optimal storage capacity. Use a hot glue gun to add on cute patches, glittery jewels and other fun things that are totally Y-O-U. Then, toss in some necessities: An extra lip balm, period supplies, a Tide bleach pen for emergencies—you get the idea.
#5 Photos + Magnets
Last but not least, you’re gonna need some stellar finishing touches. Arrange a trip to the mall with your buds and cram your crew into the nearest photo booth. Spend five minutes snapping silly pics that are sure to make you smile during the school day, then use ridic magnets to post the photo strips in your locker.
