I'm excited to be sharing an easy back to school idea.
Ok...is it just me, or is anyone else freaking out that school is just around the corner? I am one of those moms who LOVE back to school time. But I can't believe it's here already! Crazy!
This year, I have 2 girls that will be in Jr. high and I need some cute locker accessories/decorations.
Because really, isn't that what school is really all about? That and cute clothes and shoes. Oh and boys..I can't forget about the boys.
When I went in search of some cute locker accessories, I couldn't find any that my girls would love. The ones that I did find were not that cute. So, I figured I would make my own.
I pulled out some of my favorite Hazel & Ruby supplies and got to work.
This was an old forgotten clipboard that I found forever ago at a yard sale. I took the clip off and sprayed it gold (of course) and then painted the board white. Once that was dry, I added some letters and an arrow from my Hazel and Ruby stencil masks. I just picked random letters because I liked the look, but you could certainly use all of the same font. After the masks were placed, I sprayed everything a fabulous berry pink. I added some magnets so it would stick in their locker. Easy peasy.
Because I am a mom to girls, we all agree on the fact that you can never have too many accessories. Same idea goes for locker decorations. I found this cute pink, white board at the dollar store. It was fine by itself, it just needed a little something extra. I pulled out my fat roll, Quote Me washi tape and put a strip on the side. This is one of my favorite washi tapes because:
A-it's actually really sticky
B-I LOVE the empowering words and quotes.
This is the perfect little detail. My girls will be reminded of how awesome they are every time they open their locker. This makes me happy, happy, happy!
Last but not least, I made some simple picture clips using plastic chip clips from the dollar store, Hazel and Ruby washi tape and some ribbon. I just glued a magnet to each one. These will be perfect for notes, pictures or quotes that my girls might want to display.
Note: All of these Hazel & Ruby products can be purchased at Michaels
