If your so-blah locker makes you cringe whenever ya put in
your combo, then listen up! We’re glamming up grim lockers to keep ya grinning
from homeroom to the final bell. Who says school can’t be crafty?
#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.

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.
