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.
Label Maker Word Magnets
Sometimes you've got to use magnets to express yourself — specifically these DIY label maker magnets. Go for funny, inspirational, or even thought-provoking... just don't let arranging word magnets make you late for third period.
Crocheted Mini Bunting
When it's festive decor you're after, there's usually bunting involved — so why not add some to your locker? This colorful mini crochet garland will liven up even a drab locker's interior.
DIY Magnetic Chalkboard
Spending time at your locker will seem a lot more fun when there's a DIY mini chalkboard on which to jot down due dates (or write silly messages!).
Add a touch of old world glamour to your locker without going baroque. Okay, we'll be serious — this creative DIY locker chandelier is made of cardboard from a shoe box, so it's incredibly budget-friendly. Decorate it with glitter, like this blogger did, or with fabric scraps, acrylic paint and more!

It may not be glamorous, but once the locker next to you houses a rotting banana for weeks on end, you'll thank us for recommending this DIY Mason jar air freshener. Scented with your favorite essential oil, this little guy will make sure your locker doesn't smell of rotten food or Axe body spray — and that's really all you can hope for.
