  • - It's a new school year, so today we're going to do
  • back to school DIY locker decor.
  • (upbeat music)
  • Guys, are you excited for school?
  • (squeaking) Me either, but we can be excited
  • about what our locker's gonna look like.
  • So I've done lots of locker decor videos in the past,
  • you should go check those out,
  • they're really cool, after this video.
  • What am I doin' with my hands?
  • It's been two years since my first locker video (explosion).
  • (twinkling)
  • Oh, I'm so adorable!
  • Tools for School sent us these awesome locker supplies,
  • so let's make something cool to go with them.
  • Thank you Tools for School for sponsoring this video.
  • Today I got something fresh for you.
  • For the first craft, I'm going to teach you
  • how to make mini hanging macrame planters.
  • For this we will need Plaster of Paris.
  • So I have here a half a cup of water
  • and I'm going to add a cup of Plaster of Paris.
  • Let's stir it up, you want it to look like pancake batter.
  • I got these little paper cups.
  • Look how cute they are, they're so small.
  • I'm going to put the Plaster of Paris inside of it,
  • so it makes like a little pot.
  • If you tap it, it all goes to the bottom.
  • Now I got this little pencil eraser
  • and I'm just going to stick it in the middle
  • so it will hold the plant.
  • So this one we're going to do a little different.
  • We want the back to be flat, so that it will
  • go against the locker door.
  • So what I'm going to do is I've cut out a piece of cardboard
  • so I'm going to stick it in like this,
  • like about three fourths of the way
  • and then fill this side up.
  • That's good, now we're going to let those sit
  • until they're nice and dry.
  • So I made these Plaster of Paris molds ahead of time.
  • Let's open them up and see how they worked.
  • There we go, ooh.
  • (laughing)
  • It worked!
  • I like how it kinda looks like cement.
  • Now we're just going to sand off the rough edges.
  • (scratching)
  • Now that it's nice and smooth, let's get to painting.
  • I'm just going to do a diagonal blue color across the bottom
  • and then a gold stripe above it.
  • You can also tape it to get nice and straight lines.
  • I'm gonna use spray paint too.
  • (whooshing)
  • Ta da, oh my gosh, it's so pretty.
  • Oh I really like this one.
  • Yay (clapping), now it's time to put the plants in.
  • I got these fake plants at the store
  • and I'm just going to hot glue them in.
  • Tee dee, it's a little plant.
  • This one is just going to be sitting on my locker shelf,
  • so I'm going to put a cute little
  • blue pom-pom trim around it.
  • This one is really cute.
  • Aw, a little pom-pom.
  • Since this one is flat on the back,
  • it's going to be on the locker door.
  • So I'm going to glue a magnet on it.
  • On my other locker videos, there was like a disco ball
  • and a chandelier hanging from the ceiling,
  • well I'm going to replace that with a macrame plant holder.
  • I'm going to cut 12 pieces of yarn that are a foot long.
  • Now I'm going to tie them in a knot altogether at the top.
  • All right, so here's the tricky part so pay attention.
  • I'm going to split the yarn up into groups of two.
  • So you want to get an object that's about
  • the same thickness as this marker.
  • What we're going to do is tie a square knot
  • around the marker using the two strings.
  • See now when I pull the marker out,
  • there's a little gap right there.
  • Now let's do the other ones.
  • Now we're going to take this pair of strings
  • and separate them and connect them
  • to the strings next to them with a knot.
  • This is just a regular old knot.
  • (inspiring music)
  • Look at it, it looks like a flower or like a snowflake.
  • Just take the plant and put it on right in the middle.
  • And then we're going to bring up our edges.
  • Oh my gosh, it's so cute.
  • We got a little plant.
  • So cheesy, (ticking).
  • Okay guys, last step, this is how
  • we're going to hang it in our locker.
  • You're going to need a little ring just like this.
  • What you're going to do is feed all the yarn through it.
  • Now that we've got all of our strings through the ring,
  • we're going to fold those strings over
  • on the other side and hot glue 'em down.
  • Now I'm going to put a bop of hot glue
  • and I'm going to wrap the folded strings down
  • with a new piece of string.
  • Trim off the extra yarn that is left over.
  • And that's what it looks like when it's done.
  • Our planters are ready, now let's move
  • on to the locker wallpaper.
  • For the stamp you'll need foam paper,
  • scissors and a hot glue gun.
  • I'm going to cut out several squares for the base
  • and then on the next foam paper,
  • you can cut out any pattern you want.
  • I'm going to do a plus sign.
  • Now I'm going to stack 'em all up and glue 'em together.
  • (upbeat music)
  • And there's your stamp.
  • I've already marked where I want my design to go.
  • Now I'm just going to stamp all the way across.
  • (upbeat music)
  • And this is what it should look like when it's done.
  • I totally love this you guys.
  • And last but not least, I'm going to make
  • some curtains for my locker shelf,
  • this way I can hide my secret food stash in it.
  • You'll need Velcro, fabric, a glue gun and some trim.
  • To make the curtain we need to gather it.
  • So what we're gonna do is put a little dot of glue
  • and then we're going to pinch the fabric
  • and then lay it over it.
  • See, now we're going to make another set.
  • Now we're just going to glue the trim across the top.
  • Surprise, look how cute they turned out.
  • It looks like a little skirt.
  • Now we're going to stick on the adhesive Velcro.
  • One on each side and one in the middle.
  • The other side of the Velcro
  • will attach to the locker shelf.
  • Everything is prepared and ready, now let's go to my locker.
  • We're gonna start with the wallpaper.
  • Since it's contact paper, we could just peel and stick.
  • Make sure you get the one that says removable!
  • We're gonna start at the top and work our way down.
  • It's time for the shelf.
  • This is the Tools for School Adjustable Locker Shelf.
  • See? Small, big.
  • I'm just gonna stick it in and expand it.
  • Time to add my locker rug.
  • Let's attach our peel-and-stick Velcro for our curtains.
  • Ahh, oh my gosh, it's so cute!
  • And da da da dah!
  • I'm still trying to decide what I wanna put in there.
  • Takis, licorice,
  • comment down below what you would hide in there.
  • Time to hang up my Tools for School Magnetic Pencil Holder.
  • Ohh, I just had the best idea!
  • I'm gonna put some of the pom-pom trim on it,
  • so it will match the locker, so (blasting).
  • While we're at it, we're gonna put some on the mirror too.
  • That's better.
  • And last but not least, let's add in our planters!
  • Eee, so cute!
  • Tell me down in the comments below
  • which DIY was your favorite.
  • The wallpaper, the curtains or the plants.
  • (upbeat music)
  • I think this is my favorite locker
  • that we've ever decorated.
  • Comment down below which one was your favorite.
  • We did pineapple one, we did a cactus one,
  • we did a mermaid one, a unicorn one
  • and also just like a regular one like this
  • where it doesn't really have a theme.
  • Thank you guys so much for joining me today,
  • hopefully you guys liked the locker.
  • I had so much fun making it.
