Here are my favorite tips:
- Fabulous Magnets: This is a great crafty tip if you have a tween daughter. Try gluing fake flowers and rhinestones to cheap magnets you can buy at the dollar store. They make any old locker super fun and stylish and perfect for a fashionista-in-training.
- Fancy Bulletin Boards: Bulletin boards are pretty much the most boring thing ever. If you have any old necklaces lying around the house that you never wear, why not use them to spruce up that ugly yet useful cork board in your kid’s room. First, paint the border a fun colour, then using either full strands or individual beads, and your trusty glue gun, glue the beads around the border.
- Creative Textbooks: No kid loves lugging around those 40-pound textbooks. A popular trend is to use fun fabric to create a cover for your textbook. I love this idea, but a great twist to it for a younger boy is to use an old sport’s jersey (clean of course!) for the fabric. Or for the stylish music fan, try using a concert t-shirt.
