Hi there! I’m Sara from sincerely, sara d., and I’m honored Angela asked me to be a contributor on Unexpected Elegance. Angela is so creative and a diva at DIY projects, and I always love seeing what she’s up to.
Today, I’m going to show you how to make a fun clipboard. And the cool thing about this clipboard is that you can customize it to fit any style.
You can obviously use your clipboard how you wish, but I’m using our clipboards with my kids. Together, we’re memorizing a monthly Bible verse. Our verse for this month is Jeremiah 1:9, and I’m sharing the printable with you:
For the DIY clipboards you’ll need:
- scrapbook paper
- Mod Podge
- old brush
- spray paint
These clipboards are easy, inexpensive AND cute. I found my clipboards at Target for $2 each.
I spray painted my clipboards with Rust-Oleum paint + primer spray paint. This stuff is awesome. (Remember to do several light coats to avoid dripping.)
Next, I traced the clipboard on the scrapbook paper. I cut about a half inch in so you could see part of the (painted) clipboard.
Also I cut around the actual clip on the board as you can see below…
Next, paint a thin coat of mod podge on the back of the scrapbook paper and adhere to the clipboard.
Now paint over the entire clipboard surface – excluding the clip.
And there you have it! You can create something unique for yourself or as a gift! Or, use yours too for the monthly verse. I’ll be sharing a new printable every month on my blog.
I put a clipboard in my kitchen nook…
And one in my boys’ bathroom…
It was so fun to be with you guys today, and I’m looking forward to next month!
