Clipboard Wall Display | DIY

Clipboard Wall Display Hello, it’s Jen & Jodie back to share a super fun idea with you. It’s our Clipboard Wall Display and we are so happy with the way it turned out. We decided to spruce up four old boring clipboards. It’s so easy and inexpensive you could do a larger display than we did… or even add in a few mini ones.

Here are the supplies we used:

  • 4 Clipboards
  • White Spray Paint
  • Tacky Glue
  • Gold Glitter
  • Paint Brush

We spray painted the entire front side of the clipboards, metal parts and all. Once the paint has a nice even coverage, set the clipboards aside and let them dry overnight.

Then it’s time to make them sparkle! Slip a piece of paper under the clip to protect the board from getting glue on it. Using a paint brush, apply a good coat of tacky glue to the front side of the metal clip.
