When it comes to keeping my kids busy and entertained every day, nothing compares to the enjoyment they get from arts & crafts. Between colored pencils, crayons, markers, pastels, highlighters, watercolors, acrylic paints, glitters, glues,… our house is basically a crafting warehouse! As you know, I love to create and use my imagination, so when my daughters express an interest to make something artistic, I always encourage them.
I’ve been trying to find cute, unique ways to display my kids’ artwork for many years now. This system here has worked for a while. And in our previous house, we set this up, which also worked well. However, it’s time to make some updates and a new place to display their artwork was in order (more on that to come soon). Hint: Our new art display center features clipboards!
For today, I will show you how I took five dollar store clipboards and made them totally chic and refined using contact paper! It was a really simple process and I’m in LOVE with how they came out!
Easy Dollar Store Clipboard Update
Here’s how this all goes down:
Use the scissors to cut the contact paper so that it’s a few inches longer than the clipboard on all sides.
Flip the clipboard over and use the utility knife to cut the contact paper along all edges.
Wasn’t that easy? I made five of these little babies! I can’t wait to show you in a few days what I did with them! And why this new system makes displaying my daughters’ art masterpieces easier than ever!!
