My daughter bought a few of these decorations at the store, but the rest were made by us in part to save money but also to have them fit her locker better.
If you want to know how to make any of the items we made, follow the links below:
The items we purchased were:
The magnetic wallpaper was the basis for the black, pink, and gold theme. She also really likes blue so we added a few blue items (flower magnets and chandelier). One issue we had with the magnetic wallpaper was that it was way too small to cover much of the locker surface. To fix this issue, we used the magnetic wallpaper to hang pink scrapbook paper to cover up more of the locker.
Then we made the scrapbook paper wallpaper for the door. Since the scrapbook paper wallpaper needed to be held up with magnets, we made the magnets a little more fancy by attaching rhinestones and small round mirrors to them!
The wooden shelves were painted with gold paint and gold glitter. Then we put pink fuzzy "rugs" on the shelves. We tucked the curtains in between the rug and the shelf so that they didn't need a metal surface to hang.
We hope that this inspires you to have fun decorating your locker!

My son started middle school this year and he has his own locker. Of course, he wants to "decorate" his locker. I explained to him that stickers and other semi-permanent things would not be good. He was bummed until I sat him down with his paintball magazines and remote control car magazines and told him to pick a few things out. He didn't understand what I was doing but I then took the 5 x 7 inch magnet that had last year's school calendar on it and a jar of rubber cement. I showed him how he could have cooler things than stickers in his locker by cutting out pictures, logos, or whatever out of his magazine, using rubber cement to attach to the magnet and when this was dry, he cut out the pictures in different shapes so they didn't look the same.

I am in charge this year of decorating the boys football teams locker room. Anyone have any ideas? The school is Governor Mifflin and the mascot is the Mustangs. Our colors are Maroon and Gold.

We decorated last year for sectionals. It was a blast. We are also decorating for the junior high. We used art paper with spray paint to make banners for the hall and made a banner for each class with the jersey#'s or players name.The kids were really surprised. You can buy any color paint just make sure it is safe to use in the school and you can also get glitter and crepe paper. We hung the crepe paper from the ceiling with balloons! Show the players you really appreciate them and all their hard work!
