Dear Dish-It: How Should I Decorate My Locker This Year? :: Discuss It!

Dear Dish-It,

I don’t know how I should decorate my locker; it’s long and skinny.

Dear MCG,

Good question! Next to decorating your bedroom, decorating your school locker is a great way to express your individuality and personality. Choosing colours, themes and patterns for your locker shows the world what you like and how you express your creativity.

Tell us in the forums how you’re planning to decorate your locker this year >>

Girls seem to decorate their lockers more than boys. They put up pictures of celebrities, pets, friends and boyfriends. Boys tend to see a more functional and practical use for their locker: what better place to keep stinky gym socks and old cheese sandwiches?

In the same way that each of us is different, every locker is a unique expression and celebration of that difference. Here are some tips on how to go about decorating your locker this year.

1. Before you go nuts with the decoration, does your school have a locker decorating policy? Some schools are more open to your personal expression than others, so check to see what the rules at your school allow.

2. Inside your locker, though, things are different; the world is yours. Choose a favorite theme, such as: music, movies, sports, beach, party, pink, space, super heroes, hockey, skating, boarding, humour, 4-H, mice and motorcycles.

3. Pick the colors or materials that you want use for the background, like: wallpaper, painted canvas, fabrics, acrylic paint, wrapping paper, aluminum paper, mirror faux fur and neon.

4. You'll need accessories: magnets, stickies, tape, ribbons, dried leaves, pieces of fabric, glue, scissors, and 3-D postcards.

5. Items to hang on your locker walls: wooden frames, mirrors, day planner, calendar, clock, pictures, photo collages, cell phone holder.

6. Clean the locker inside. First take all your stuff out and do some cleaning before you start to apply your chosen decoration. Anything that's mouldy or leaves a bad smell has to go.

7. Above all, have fun!

Ever Been Stuffed Inside a Locker?

  • Tons of times!
  • Once, back in 7th grade.
  • I'm too cool for that sort of stuff.
  • No, but I stuff other kids in their lockers!

Ahh, I heard about that... it's really sad, even though I've never listened to Linkin Park. I only knew about the group because one of my best friends from real life was really into them a few years ago. She probably still is, but doesn't talk about them as much. But I do hope everyone who has to deal with the aftermath can cope with it, and that Chester's having a better time. That information at the end of the post is very useful, and that quote is very true. <3 It's a good thing you brought that up, too~
