DIY Locker Decorations

DIY locker decorations inside a school locker

Make these cute and colorful DIY locker decoration ideas for back to school using ASTROBRIGHTS® Papers!

Today I’m sharing fun and easy DIY decorating ideas for your school locker. These DIY locker decorations are inexpensive and also more unique than buying locker decorations, and they only take an hour to make. There are 25 vivid ASTROBRIGHTS colors; I recommend picking four different colors for this DIY locker decorations project. Choose your favorite color combination for these printable locker decorations or show some school spirit by coordinating with your school colors. I chose Celestial Blue®, Rocket Red™, Martian Green™, and Lift-Off Lemon™ for Liam’s locker decorations.

Free printable school schedule (in your chosen colors)

First, I designed a personalized free printable school schedule that you can customize with your name and daily school schedule or after school activities; just download the free template, type in Adobe Reader to personalize, and print onto ASTROBRIGHTS Papers. You’ll choose two colors for this printable locker schedule.

DIY locker magnets: Teeny Pennants

Next, you can make a set of DIY locker magnets. These super cute DIY locker magnets look like teeny tiny school pennants. Each cheery mini pennant magnet features a motivational phrase including Work Hard, Be Nice, Learn Lots, and Have Fun for an extra dose of encouragement. Make a bunch to display your favorite photos, doodles, and daily schedule.

DIY storage box template for pencils

And last: DIY storage cups made from paper. I designed my DIY paper pencil box template to help keep your locker tidy, and it includes a personalized monogram that you can edit yourself. Download my paper pencil box template, type in Adobe Reader to personalize, print, decorate with colorful shapes, and follow my box folding directions below. Make several paper pencil boxes to store pencils, pens, lip balm, and other lightweight items securely on your locker door.
