Decorative Clipboards DIY
Clipboards are great for keeping your home office organized, but they can be a bit boring. Why not upcycle those old clipboards to make some decorative clipboards that are both functional and pretty! With just a few supplies and some time, you can create your own decorative clipboards to use with all your organizing needs. When they’re not in use, they double as wall art. Or you can even create some to use only as wall art if you like. This is a perfect gift for crafters on any holiday list! The following is an instructional blog post that will walk you through the steps in creating this project. I hope it inspires you to get creative! One note, I used a Vintage Moth Print for this project, but you can choose any subject that you like. We have loads of Bird prints, Mushrooms, Eggs, Flowers on this site, so grab what ever speaks to you the most and use that!
This project takes a plain vintage clipboard, and makes it into something that’s not only useful but decorative too! You’ll find the instructions for this fun vintage clip board makeover below.

Step 3) Find something round to use as a template. I used a penny for mine. Draw around the object on each end of the pleated paper.
Step 4) Trim the paper along the marks that you made. Then unfold the pleats and you have a nice scalloped edge paper to work with! Yay!
Step 6) Once dry, apply a top coat of Mod Podge, as a sealer, to protect the surface.
