Supplies Needed to Customize a Locker Clip

Directions for Making a Locker Clip Craft

Step 1 - Magnetic Locker Clip Craft
This is how we start our locker clip craft.

Step 1

After gathering all of the supplies, invite kids to cut the tissue paper into small squares. Kids can expedite this process by cutting multiple sheets of tissue paper at once!

Step 2 - Magnetic Locker Clip Craft
Customize your locker clip with your favorite colors!

Step 2

Wet the brush with Mod Podge, then use the wet brush to pick up a piece of tissue paper. Brush the tissue paper onto the wooden clip, then repeat the process, covering the entire clip.

Be sure to overlap colors so the wood doesn’t show!

Step 3

Allow the Mod Podge to harden and dry completely, then attach adhesive magnetic tape to the back.
