My locker is incredibly boring, I need a little SPICE, because it's so darn plain and booorrinngg. I don't want to go out and buy little locker decorations, pockets, mirrors, ect. but I don't want it to be so plain all year. My only idea currently is to take a plain cheap mirror and collage the rim.. any other ideas??

Is the locker metal?  You can use magnets -either store bought or home made. 
and you can pretty much make your own version of any of those store bought locker decorations.  Pockets out of a fabric you choose would be a lot more personal, don't you think?

ya know those AOL cd's you get in the mail or free at the drugstore? Try hot gluing those together with clear fishing wire, making a locker-sized panel. It only needs to be 2 rows across and about 4-8 down depending on the side of your locker. or, for another cool, industrial look, line your locker with bubble wrap. it looks funky and is good stress management when your most hated teacher gives you a bad grade! lol
good luck,

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

bubble wrap! That is the most awesome idea. Although, I have to share a locker this year, and I don't know if my partner wants me to go decorating our locker. I doubt she'll want to do any decorating, though, so maybe she won't care...

last year i took some shiny wrapping paper and cut a piece for the inside of my locker door. then i made a border with fake leaf wire from the dollar store. the wrapping paper looked good, but those damn leaves kept falling off and getting all over the floor.
