Make Back to School Fun with DIY School Spirit Crafts


Now let’s give your locker some school spirit with some DIY school spirit crafts!  I love working with chalk board fabric because you can use it in so many ways for home decor and now, for your home away from home, school. For a cool locker decor you’ll need chalk board fabric, a magnetic shim (or use an old refrigerator magnet like the ones you get from a baseball team or realtor), spray adhesive and embellishments like die cut letters, fabric, bows, jewels, ribbon, whatever you want.


Find a large die-cut shape like a circle, square or rectangle and cut the magnetic shim and chalk board fabric in your die-cut machine. Spray the backside of the chalk board fabric with adhesive and stick it to the non-magnet side of the magnetic shim. Next, add school color embellishments using a hot glue gun or adhesive spray and maybe even add a string to hang a piece of chalk so it’s always handy!




If you have any magnetic shim material left you can die-cut letters, shapes and numbers, hot foil the fronts and use them to add to your locker decor too!




Be sure to send in your photos of lockers!
