Last spring I added a clipboard wall over our couch and up until now the clipboards have only held up kid artwork. To dress them up for Christmas, I made some simple DIY wall prints with the help of a super cute font and an even simpler garland. I shared it on Instagram last weekend and y’all BLEW UP MY PICTURE with likes!! So here’s the tutorial on how to make your own.
Have family coming and want to deck your halls super quick? This would be PERFECT in a few picture frames. Or clipboards, cause they’re awesome.
I almost made this into a printable (and I can if any of you would like), but really, it’s so simple you don’t need one.You just need this great font by Kimberly Geswein. I love all of her fonts and pretty much swooned when I saw that she made this one. I used it on our DIY letter garland as well!
-Cardstock (paper works, but the cardstock lays better if you are using a clipboard)
-Some kind of word processor program (I used MS Word)
-The ADORBALE font KG Bless Your Heart
-Download your font.
-Type words into your program, making sure to center em on the page.
It’s really that simple. To make the pom-pom garland, grab some pom poms from the dollar store and twine, thread, or embroidery floss. I threaded them on just like on my cottonball snowball garland and tied off the ends. I simply draped the garland over the tops of my clipboards like so:
I also used the garland to decorate our blanket fort a few weeks ago! It was a fun touch that took the fort to the next level. Until my 2 year old came through and ripped it down. ;) You can see the fancy fort on our Christmas movie list printable post.
I wanted to share our whole family room and do a Christmas home tour today, but between the noodles on the floor and the pillow fort on the couch and the half of the tree without ornaments, I will take pics and share it soon. I promise to share a picture of the craziness too. :)
Here’s a sneak peek. Between the clipboards and all of the colors, I am loving the kindergarten chic look!
How are you decking your halls? With boughs of holly?
(I think I need some boughs of holly.)
Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick saw our clipboards on Instagram and created her own artwork! If you’re inspired too, please tag me (@whbsblog) so I can check out your project. :)
