Make a DIY Clipboard with Wallpaper Scraps

Make a DIY clipboard using wallpaper scraps.

After wallpapering my hallway, I have a ton of random pieces of wallpaper left over. Since it’s gorgeous, I would love to find things to do with it. While I was trying to organize my desk, I ran across a plain clipboard that I use for my papers and a project was born.

This decorative clipboard is one of those stupidly easy crafts that just take a few minutes to complete.

*If your wallpaper is removable, you won’t need the glue and this project is even easier! Make all of the cuts before peeling away the backing. Be sure to dry fit.

  1. Cut a piece of wallpaper slightly larger than your clipboard.
  2. Trace the clipboard edge with a pencil. trace clipboard onto wallpaper
  3. Cut along the lines you traced, making it slightly smaller than what you drew.
