It’s that time of year again. Lockers. Sarcastic Yay. Do not let the cramped spaces bring you down, as it is easily fixed by cute stuff! Today I am going to show you the essentials that you can find anywhere for cheap, some awesome revamps on cheap stuff and totally original DIYs. Let’s get started.
- Locker Shelf
This is unavoidable. Lockers just do not have enough space for everything. Even if you get a few shelves, you will probably need a sturdy shelf at the bottom. This one was $1.25 at Dollarama, but they are just as cheap at The Dollar Tree or the locker section at Target and Walmart.
2. Whiteboard/Corkboard Revamp
I was at the SuperStore with my mother when she did her grocery shopping. We passed by their seasonal section and I found a large half whiteboard and half corkboard for only $2! When we got home, I decided to revamp it. I took the marker clip off the sides and covered the purple plastic part in flower patterned duct tape. Then, I blinged out the top portion with stickers.
3. Owl Magnets (Shown in #2’s Photo)
Okay, these are the best magnet clip things I have ever seen. For $1 at Dollarama, these clips come also in Peace Signs and Hearts. If you do not want to spend anything and have magnetic clips lying around, you can print off pictures of owls and glue them on.
4. Duct Tape Pencil Holders DIY
You will need duct tape, labels (I just printed off two Lily Pulitzer prints and cut the shapes I wanted out of the paper), packing tape and a tin can
Step 1. Cut three strips of duct tape and stick them to your can so that you can’t see any of the tin showing through. I like to fold the top over the rim of the can so that you get a polished look. If you run out of tape on your roll, just apply glue to the cardboardy (Is that a word) area on the bag of your pattern and wrap around the can.
Step 2. Stick your label on to your can and write whatever you choose, maybe what you are storing inside or be random like me and right things like “LOL” and “Be Awesome”. After the label has been applied, cover with packing tape for longer durability.
I loved these so much that I made the one with the British flag sticking out of it for my room! You can just put pencils and other writing utensils inside, or you can put all your essentials inside like I did. I put in a pack of tissues, a whiteboard marker, a black pen and the thumbtacks for my corkboard, but feel free to put in whatever you want.
5. Whiteboard Calendar DIY
You will need a printout of a completely blank calendar, stick-on magnets and packing tape.
The Only Step. Cut out the calendar. Cover with packing tape and fill in all the information with a whiteboard marker. Place a magnet in each corner and one in the center.
6. Personalized Magnets
You will need old magnets that you do not need, packing tape and printouts
The Only Step. Glue your pictures to the magnets and cut them out. Cut out a strip of packing tape and glue on top.
Just to give you some ideas of the things you could put on your magnets, I googled “Unicorn Emoji” and found the above picture of a panda with a unicorn’s horn that says “Keep Calm and be a Pandicorn”. I also used a picture of a kitten sitting in marshmallows, the Gryffindor emblem from Harry Potter and three pictures from one of my fave shows ever, The Librarians. Remember, this is only advice and you need to be as true to you as possible when decorating your space.
