We'll admit it: we looked forward to the first day of school. At least, we looked forward to decorating our lockers on that first day of school. In its small space, we could express ourselves through pencil organizers and photo collages. Admittedly, decorating a school locker has gotten a lot more fun these days. Get inspired for the school year with these creative ideas for decorating a school locker.
