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
First thing you’ll want to do is give your clipboards 4-5 light coats of spray paint. Remember to let each coat completely dry before doing another one. 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.
Let it sit for a few minutes and then tap off the excess glitter. Then just let it dry overnight again. We actually propped up the bottom of the board a little. Otherwise gravity makes the glue and glitter slide down on the clip just a bit.
We have a few other clipboard projects on our blog. I think it’s because they are so inexpensive so they are fun to decorate with. You can check out our Polkadot Clipboard Sign HERE over on Eighteen25!
