You don't get to be yourself in most areas of school, so make the most of your locker.

Step 1: Choose a color scheme
Choose a color scheme for your paper background. Some people use multiple colors while others use just one. Consider making a border in a contrasting shade.

Some students choose a theme for their locker, like sports or movies.

Step 2: Measure your locker
Measure your locker before cutting any paper to make sure the pieces will fit in the spaces you want to use them.

Step 3: Use magnets
Use fun magnets or clear tape to attach the paper, so it will be easy to remove.

If magnets won’t stick to your locker, use special removable wallpaper or contact paper, available at craft stores.

Step 4: Attach pictures
Attach pictures and magazine clippings to the background paper. It can be anyone—friends, family, musicians, movie stars, models, or a mix.

Leave some space open—you’ll never know who you’ll want to add on.

Step 5: Hang a spot for notes
Using magnets or clear tape, hang a dry-erase board, a corkboard, or a calendar so you can write notes and reminders throughout the year.

If using a dry-erase board or corkboard, be sure to hang a holder for tacks or a marker and eraser.

Step 6: Use stickers
Intersperse colorful and expressive stickers.

Have a small 'seasonal' area that you can change for holidays, special occasions, or just whenever you feel like it.

Step 7: Add designs and quotes
Use colored markers to make your own designs or write quotes on your background paper.

Attach a small hook to the ceiling of your locker and hang an air freshener.

Step 8: Hang a mirror
Hang a mirror. With only a minute or two between classes, your locker can serve as your post-lunch teeth inspection and post-gym hair check.

Did You Know?
Some schools have started using clear lockers so teachers and administrators can make sure students aren’t hiding contraband.
