(Update: We first made these a few years ago, but they’re still a favorite with the kids!)
My daughter just started middle school. She’s loving it so far (okay…it’s only Day 2), and one of the things she’s excited about is that now she gets a locker.
A locker to cram full of stuff that I can’t nag her to pick up or organize.
But also a locker she can decorate. She’s not going overboard (she’s mocking the idea of locker chandeliers, even though I secretly want to make one anyway), but she did make a few things she can hang in hers, including these magnets.
Aren’t they purdy? I like that they look sort of jewel-like. And you can change the pattern on them to…well, anything, really. We used washi tape, but if you had scrapbook paper, or even wrapping paper you liked, you could use that instead.
DIY Locker Magnets
Here’s what you need:
- disc magnets
- washi tape
- clear glass rocks (we found ours in the floral section at Michael’s)
- clear glue
Cover the non-magnetic side of your magnets with washi tape. Trim the edges and smooth them, tucking any remaining tape underneath the magnet. Add one dot of glue on top of the washi tape, and press your glass rock on top of the glue. Allow to dry overnight.
That’s it! Simple but fun.
