Hello everyone! Today I am doing the promised DIY Locker Decorations for you! I'm really excited for this so let's get right into the post!
I have 3 crafts for you today. A chandlier, word banner, and magnetic bins. These things are completly DIY and you should be able to do this without going to the store.
This first craft is making a chandlier out of 4 4x4 squares (aka charm pack squares), a circle made out of cardboard, a square of fabric (big enough to wrap around the circle, not shown in picture), fabric scissors and regular scissors, and a stapler!
The first step is to cut out your circle (not shown in picture) and then cut out a piece of fabric that will cover your circle. Do not cut a piece of fabric in the shape of a circle unless you are planning to glue your fabric on your circle.
(Sorry for the little shadow peeking through, they like to do that...) Now, wrap the fabric square you just cut around the circle like so. Gather up all the ends of the fabric to the middle of the circle and staple to hold it in place.
Take your charm pack squares and cut them into strips. I did 3 strips per square so I ended up with 12 strips.
Staple the strips onto the chandlier like shown. I wasn't able to put all the strips on because there was not enough room. When you are done, put some magnetic tape on the top and stick it on your locker! (Not shown) ENJOY!
2. Word Banner
This next craft is creating a banner which says your name or other word on it. It uses a similar technique as our Memory Strand (check out that post in the Tutorials tab!)
YOU WILL NEED:
Pieces of paper, number depends on how many letters are in your word. (I used 4)
Markers for decor
Take your paper and cut a triangle that looks like this. (Mine is a bit messy) Do that to all of the papers and they should look like this:
After cutting out the triangles, write your word on the triangles. I wrote my name to keep things simple!
Grab your tape and cut a small slim piece. Attach the triangle to the string by putting a little part of the tape on the triangle and then wrapping the tape over the string and then putting the tape on the back of the triangle.Those who did the Memory Strand craft should already know what I mean.
Do this on the rest of your triangles and VOILA! You have an awesome banner for your locker! ENJOY!!!!
Since this has already become a long post, I am splitting the post into 2 parts. Tomorrow's post will be the last craft and then some Locker Organization Tips so stay tuned. I hope you all enjoyed today's crafts and be sure to come back tomorrow!
